Country Club of York & Virtual Meeting on Zoom
Today, it’s almost impossible to turn on the television, read a news post or engage in company training that does not have the title of diversity, equity, or inclusion. But what’s behind these terms? What are the implications for business revenue and expansion when it comes to bias? Join fellow Rotarian CJ Gross, TEDx speaker, international DEI consultant, and author of the book What’s Your ZIP Code Story? for an intriguing discussion about the brain science behind bias and its implication on business initiatives.  CJ Gross is the Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Ascension Worldwide,  a full-service minority owned consulting firm committed to helping clients achieve workplace inclusion, employee and client diversity, and innovative growth opportunities beyond their imagination

The Rotary Club of York is looking for host families for two exchange students. One is a girl from France who will attend York Suburban High School, so we need families who reside in the York Suburban School District.  The other student is a boy from Belgium who will attend Dallastown Area High School, and we need host families who live in the Dallastown School District. We can accept families of any age, with or without children, and children of any age if there are children. The exchange student can have his or her own bedroom or share a room with another child of the same sex. 
The families will welcome the exchange student for about 100 days. Rotary places students with three host families so none need to host for a full year. Families can choose to host from mid-August to the first weekend in December; the first weekend in December to the first weekend in March, or the first weekend in March to the second week of June. Most months, the student will be away at a Rotary event for one weekend, so families will get a short break each month. Families provide the student with food including lunch at school (either pack a lunch or buy at school) and include the student in all family activities and pay for the student's participation in family activities. The student will pay his or her own expenses for her or his activities, school activities and events, cell phone, insurance, and other costs of the exchange.
Please share this information with any family or friends who live in either York Suburban or Dallastown school districts if you know of anyone you think would be a good host family. If you are interested in hosting a student and want more information, please contact Walt Tilley at
The Educational/Vocational Guidance Committee is looking to
teach kids how to fish and we need your help to make it a
success. Three free sessions will take place at Kiwanis Lake on July 23, August 6 and August 13 from 8:30am-11:00am. All volunteers must have Child Abuse Clearances/Background Checks. We can help to obtain these at no charge to you. A free t-shirt, breakfast and snacks are also included.
If you are interested in being a volunteer for one or all three of these sessions, please contact Ashlee Etzweiler at
Thank you to everyone who participated in collecting plastics over the past several weeks. Prior to our most recent meeting, Preserving Planet Earth Committee members collected 115 green bags from 45 members. The bags will be given to CRDC's "Bag That Builds" program, an innovative plastic waste collection program that receives and utilizes all types of plastic directly from households.
A special thank you to The York Water Company for providing one of your trucks to collect the bags.
