Did the writer of this article actually look at the web site before claiming an update?

There is no new information that you claim in this article...the calendar and entertainment list is still from 2006

Try clicking the refresh button in your browser and if that doesn't work hold down the CTRL button and click refresh. The Jaycee site has definitely been updated, I assume you are seeing an old version of their site.

Thanks...I had repeatedly refreshed my page without success, but it took the CTRL/refresh combination to get to the updated page.

Good news - the Jaycees changed family wristband night to Thursday to give people a chance to enjoy the festival after Wednesday's rains! $17 gets you unlimited rides.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions.
