Mount Joy’s Rotary Clock has been removed from its downtown location. Where did it go? Off to Lititz where watch and clockmaker Bob Desrochers is currently refurbishing it. The timepiece will be returned in good working order by the end of summer. Look for a special ceremony bringing this landmark back to the hub of Mount Joy.
Taking advantage of the clock’s temporary vacancy, the corner of Marietta Avenue and Main Street has been re-landscaped by the Rotarians who regularly meet at Bube’s Brewery on Thursday evening, the Club’s new alternate meeting site. Pictured above are Rotarians: Greg Sallade, Jack Garner, Dave Christian, Gary Ebersole (special guest), Cris Rhyner and Tim Melhorn.
While most of the funds for cleaning, repairing, and repainting the clock were raised this spring under the direction of Randy Wolgemuth, the Club needs an additional $2,500 to meet the refurbishment costs. 
To address the shortfall, the Rotary Club of Mount Joy will be offering hot, delicious fries, hot dogs and cold beverages at Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce’s Music in the Park events on July 29 and August 5.  Find the Fry Wagon at the corner of Delta and Marietta Avenue and help bring back the clock!
