Happenings in York PA
The Rotary Club of York had its VERY FIRST virtual meeting on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
A webinar organized and presented by Rotarian Courtney Bailey was shown at Noon, the time of our regular meeting. 
Following the meeting, the presentation was posted on You Tube (the link is https://youtu.be/hIEn6Vor2iA) for those of you who missed it.
Additional webinars (virtual meetings) are planned for the next few weeks.  Stay Tuned.  Members will get notifications and instructions in our normal weekly reminders.
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.
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.
