Today Bus E headed into Philadelphia. Their first stop of the day was at the SHARE Food Bank where they donated what was left of their snacks and food from the summer. Afterwards the wheelniks visited the “Rocky Steps” and raced their way to the top just like the Sylvester Stallone did in the movie. Next, the group headed over to see the liberty bell and had free time in the Independence Hall area. Later on Bus E went out to Amish country where they visited a local pretzel factory. There, the wheelniks had the chance to make their own pretzels. In the evening the wheelniks came together for their “end of the summer banquet” where they gave out paper plate awards and spent time sharing stories and memories from the summer. Later on the wheelniks changed into some more comfortable clothes and hung out together late into the night.
