Free Visitor WAKE-UP Reception July 3

The HCVB Visitor Wake-Up Receptions continue each Tuesday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. through August 14, 2012, at the Raystown Lake Region Visitors Center in the Seven Points Recreation Area.

The Wake-Up Reception series is a great place to learn all about the fun things to do and great places to visit in the Raystown Lake Region. The series continues with special events planned each week on Tuesdays through August 14.

Each visitor reception typically includes 14-22 displays and door prizes from area attractions, eateries, and shops; free snacks while supplies last, a door prize drawing for a free pass for two to take Seven Points Marina’s Sightseeing Tour aboard the Princess Lake Cruiser on Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, July 3:
  • Special guest poet Gabriel Welsch reading from his book
    “The Death of Flying Things”
  • Food sponsor Standing Stone Coffee Company
About “The Death of Flying Things”
Welsch’s third collection of poems, The Death of Flying Things moves through three seasons in Pennsylvania’s breathtaking center. Within, read what it feels like to ride the oldest roller coaster in the world (located in Altoona), hear the roiling tensions at the bar near Malcolm Cowley’s birthplace (in Cambria County), consider the threat and fragility of flowers, hear what smoke means in November in Pennsylvania, and note the unlikely combination of black walnuts and baseball.
