Finding beauty in unexpected places is what @tlcforereadingpa3 is all about. We enjoy the journey just as much as the destination, but it means even more to share with our community.. all the wonderful and awe inspiring things we come across. Today the Berks County Aero Modelers Organization showed us Aviation on Giant scale.. we learned of the beauty and majesty of flight from a remote controlled perspective. Many of these pilots have been in the aviation field in some capacity .. today their hope is to inspire a new generation of people to pursue their dreams and look to the skies. So take a look 👀 with us at this video.. thank you for everyone involved.

EDUCATION SERIES Event Sunday June 262022 - Charles Duryea - Pagoda Hill Climb

Education Series - June 26 Part 1 - Duryea Hill Climb .. on a bright and pleasantly warm afternoon.. we honored to meet with Rich Rock to discuss first hand the history of Duryea Hill Climb and the significance of its presence here in Reading Pa.

Todays series is sponsored by Bromack Living..

It’s amazing how this series tied in with our last series which we held at the Stirling Mansion @gables_stirling . The original building owner was James Sternbergh and his son.. Herbert Sternbergh who was an iron master here in Reading, is the one who deserves the credit for bringing Charles Duryea here to Reading Pa as Duryea was in need of a financier for his dream to manufacture automobiles. Enter Herbert Sternbergh, being the son of one of the richest people in Reading Pa at the time most certainly helped in getting Duryea to come set up shop here in Reading Pa.

The hill climb.. was the final test for his automobiles before being ready for sale.

Since 1951 enthusiasts, local area adventures and more have kept this hill climb an annual event.. that people from all over the eastern seaboard come to take part in.

This Pagoda hill climb and Duryea Hill climb is nationally recognized.. and this is something that we wanted to visit for our education series today. Thank you once again to Amanda @munchkin1904 for doing all the wonderful things behind the scenes and connecting us with such wonderful people.

Education Series - June 26 2022 - William Luden’s “Bon Air” Mansion - Former Reading Central Catholic High School

Education Series - June 26 Part 2 - William H Luden’s “Bon Air” Mansion - more commonly known as the former Reading Central Catholic High School..

We discussed William H Luden’s “Bon Air” Mansion and spoke on how he FOUND HIS WHY? In the back of his father jewelry shop on N 5th St in Reading before building his empire.

Luden’s claim to fame was his throat drops (cough drops in todays terms)

The Luden's mansion eventually became Reading Central Catholic High School in 1939 with an initial class of 75 students, and an addition was made to the building in 1941, (a date that will live in infamy *pearl harbor year*)

1941 was the last update to the property and in 2011 a new combined high school of Holy Name and Central Catholic was created now called Berks Catholic.

Of course we spoke on the Folk lure, tall tales, ghost stories and eerie moments.. that were said to have taken place.. we also tried to debunk the most famous of urban legends about the the Mansion.

It was a great exploration and another amazing point of history for our city and county.

THE REASON WHY WE DO THIS... 

“There’s almost no greater feeling in the world than the feeling of completion, of wholeness, and of things being the way that they should be. When presented an opportunity to be better... we should be just that... Whether we take the material worldview that it’s just a chemical reaction that’s going on in our brain, or we take the more existential understanding, that something deeper is happening, either way, the experience feels incredibly profound.

On Sunday July 26, at our Tlc Fore Reading PA tournament... we had the honor.. of presenting Addison Alexander her first Golf Club Set and golf shoes. Addison first put a golf club in her hands at the Evening on the Green event last summer, an event hosted by the Manor Golf club.. and she fell in love with the sport.

Addison has been eagerly present at every TLC event, range session, caddie program, education series, family series and even gotten out just play... and not forced by hand... but encouraged by her own desire and wants...

Addison .. we say to you.. it is children like you... that provide us with this immeasurable feeling that has been expressed in innumerable ways throughout history, and it’s the subject of novels, movies, and countless other works of art. And the sensation can be summed up in five little words;”

❤️❤️WE ARE PROUD OF YOU.👑👑

🍷Wine and Cheese🧀 Woman’s golf Clinic

 Let this amazing fact sink in.....

“...Nina Simone once said, “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear.” When you live fearlessly, you are limitless. Think about it – doesn’t freedom in itself lead to the empowerment of women and society as a whole? Women empowerment refers to the process of improving and increasing the social, economic, political, and legal status of all women. One of its main goals is to achieve gender equality and give power to all women and girls because the truth is empowering women means empowering the world.”

What an amazing evening of fellowship, laughs and fun.. thank you to these powerful woman being fearless for trying something new and fun.. and despite the rain.. memories were made and inspiration was widespread.

Thank you Crystal Gilmore Harris, Sharon Barley and Cheryl L Heckman for making this amazing event happen.. super Proud to have witness this..
