My take on Diversity is the Lancaster County "Mud Sale." Here you'll see a diverse group of people mixing together. These sales are generally held in areas where a lot of Amish live, so this photo represents a diverse mix of people, men and women, Amish (wearing mostly black) mixing with "regular" people dressed in any combination of colors. These sales are a regular Volunteer Fire Company event here in Lancaster County since the mid-1960s. These auctions help local volunteer fire companies raise much-needed funds.

The late winter and early spring dates work out best for local farmers because they have more time available before the spring planting. Since many of the items are sold outside during potentially muddy spring conditions, these events have affectionately become known as "mud sales."

The items sold vary from auction to auction and include a wide variety of donated goods and consignment merchandise. Auctioned items often include furniture, craft items, quilts, building materials, livestock, buggies and carriages, tools, farming supplies and equipment, garden items, and much more. Plus, lots of good food. Come and enjoy!
