FIRST PLACE RELAY FOR LIFE TEAM BANNER 2010!

BANANA SPLIT BONANZA

With the weather warming, it was a great time to have fun with the family and enjoy a cold ice cream treat. On Saturday, May 2, at 10:30 a.m., Route 30 SHOP 'n SAVE and Cold Cow  ice cream were doing just that. In keeping with Cold Cow’s pledge to “bring the fun back to ice cream,” they turned a life-sized canoe into a banana split serving dish.  Cold Cow and Morella’s  provided three huge mounds of ice cream, bananas and other toppings, in an effort to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
 For a donation of only $1.00 to the Route 30 SHOP 'n SAVE’s Relay for Life team, patrons received a Cold Cow Ice cream sundae with 100% of the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. There was also Pepsi and a hot dog at a bargain price of $1.00, as well as a pie throwing contest and huge outdoor produce sale.
Present for the festivities was Tom Lazarchik, the owner of Strickler’s Pharmacy of Latrobe, PA, which is the birthplace of the banana split.  He placed a ceremonial scoop atop the creamy cold creation outside the Route 30 SHOP 'n SAVE while attendees enjoy the celebration.
 The fun was also broadcasted live on “What’s cooking at Morella’s Route 30 SHOP 'n SAVE” at 10:30 a.m. on radio station WCNS 1480.
