Happenings in York PA
The Rotary Club of York sponsored the summer Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program at York High. The students in the program did weekly community service projects for various non-profit organizations.  One of the projects was to make blankets and assemble care bags for the American Red Cross “Totes of Hope” Program.  The “Totes of Hope” are given to homeless veterans and veterans in VA hospitals.  The students made 23 blankets that were placed in “Totes of Hope” bags along with toiletries, socks, and a puzzle book. 
On November 21, 2019, the students were awarded the Youth Impact Red Cross Hero Award by the South Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Red Cross for their work with the “Totes of Hope” Program.  The Rotary Club of York donated the funds to purchase the blankets and Rotarians helped and interacted with the students at every blanket making session.
Some of the students in the program have recently been relocated to the mainland of the United States from Puerto Rico after losing their homes to Hurricane Maria.  Providing the blankets to homeless veterans is a project that is very close to their hearts.

Dedication Ceremony, Trees for the Trail
Sunday, November 10, 2019
Committee chair Shelly Riedel, Judge Craig Trebilcock, Vice Admiral DeWolf Miller, III and Master of ceremonies Pastor John Dorr salute the flag as the William Penn JROTC color guard posts the colors at the beginning of the ceremony.
An agenda of remarks by Admiral Miller, Judge Trebilcock, Shelly Riedel and Steven Smith provided the attendees with a full appreciation for the work that our military does and the significance of restoring the Road of Remembrance (Susquehanna Trail south of Jacobus to the Maryland line) to its full complement of trees in honor of all who have served our country.
The attendees were treated to an outstanding performance of “I’m proud to be an American” by Alexandria Hynoski and an impressive performance by the William Penn JROTC color guard.
Those participating in the ceremony and those attending expressed compliments and gratitude for the project and the ceremony. Vice Admiral Miller described it as "world-class". Judge Trebilcock stated the ceremony was extremely well done. 
Numbering in the hundreds, the project committee, landowners, sponsors and volunteers who helped plant went way beyond expectations.
Rotary Club of York, PA raised $66,000 that will be spent to benefit the youth of York City
In 2019, the Fundraising Committee focused its efforts to raise money to support the fit-out of the science labs at the Upper School of the York Academy.  The two main events included the Give Local York Campaign in May and the Love Fore Community Outing in September. 
The Give Local efforts result in ~$20,000 of funds raised through online donations the day of the event.  As a centerpiece, we coordinated three different science experiences with some of the students at the York Academy. 
The Love Fore Community event included golf, tennis, croquet, a dinner and a live auction.  All events had full fields and the resulting moneys raised totaled ~$46,000.  This amount represented the second highest level ever achieved in the 15+ year history of the event. 
Because of the generous efforts of all the event organizers, the RCY members and those that supported the event, we continue to make a tangible and positive impact in our community. 
ROTARY RAVE REVIEWS was presented at The Belmont Theatre on Wednesday, October 16th.  Students shared their talents with the Rotarians, who were very appreciative of their performances.

It was a joy to see these young people sing, dance and play the piano and violin.
The students loved being there to perform for the York Rotary Club.

They appreciated the opportunity, and the warm reception they received.
What a wonderful day for everyone!
Trees Planted in the City of York
On Saturday, April 13, 2019, sixteen trees were planted in York City by the Preserve Planet Earth Committee, members of the Rotary Club of York, PA, family, friends, and cadets from the William Penn JROTC unit.  The trees included a variety of species ranging from Sunset Maple, Linden, Black Gum, Lilac, and Hornbeam Trees.  The planting teams removed stumps, rocks, bricks and concrete in existing tree wells to plant these trees in the areas of George Street, West Market Street, West Princess Street, East Prospect Street, and Williams Park. Special thinks to Rotarian Brian Mummert of W S  Landscape Services who procured the trees, provided the mulch and put in a full day delivering, planting and cleaning up.  Also, thanks to J T Hand and the York Water Company for the delivery of water for all the trees.
