And amazing likeness of His Holiness Pope Francis made a surprise visit to Penn Valley recently to “bless” the four newly stripped Pickleball Courts at Marina courts in Lake Wildwood. Fifteen new players attended the beginning clinic. The pickleball club has now grown to 157 members.

Steve Egge (standing next to “the Pope”) created the uncanny likeness of the Pontiff. His work can be seen at http://www.spittinimagefigures.com. He has been making “manneclones” for more than 37 years and has two of his works featured in the Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian.
