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!

 22 more Trees planted in York City

On Saturday, October 20, 2018, The Rotary Club of York, PA's Preserve Planet Earth Committee, members and families, assisted by cadets from the Bearcat Battalion of York High's JROTC troop removed stumps, rocks, bricks and concrete in existing tree wells to plant 22 trees in downtown York. The 22 trees included a variety of species - Cleveland Pear, Lilac, Hornbeam, and Linden Trees.

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 free direct delivery of water for all the trees.

Finally a BOO-RA gung-ho award to Dennis Baughman and John Klinedienst who actually removed a dead tree by hand in order to plant a new live on at the York Academy.
