The Pequea Valley Public Library held their 5th Annual Lunch/Sandwich fundraiser on March 22. All funds during past Lunch/Sandwich fundraisers benefited the library; however, this year 10% of the profits will be donated to the one-room schools that were damaged in the tornado in Salisbury Township on February 24th. The National Weather Service had reported that the 100-mph-wind tornado left a 5-mile path where dozens of buildings were damaged and an Amish schoolhouse was leveled.

Preparation of the sandwiches and lunches took place at the Leacock Presbyterian Church in Paradise. The Library Board of Directors prepared the sandwiches along with the Paradise Lions Club volunteers. The Lions Club volunteers delivered the order forms, collected the orders prior to the sale, and delivered the lunches to nearly 100 schools. This year 3,000 sandwiches were prepared and sold!
