York-East Rotary Club Meeting Programs

York County Solid Waste Authority

July 30, 2019 – Ellen O’Connor spoke to our club about the York County Solid Waste Authority.  The authority is a municipal authority created in 1971 under the Municipal Authorities Act and charged with the responsibility to manage York County’s municipal solid waste.  The Authority’s nine-member volunteer board sets the Authority’s policies and goals.  The Recycling and Planning Committee, the Administrative Committee, and the Community Services the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) Site Improvement Construction Project initiated in 2015 reached substantial completion in 2018.  The site improvement project created the infrastructure for the addition of future capacity, positioning the Authority to successfully provide for the responsible management of York County’s municipal solid waste well into the future. Site improvement construction completed in 2018 included, education center, tipping hall, scale house, ash handling and trash drop off area.
The YCRRC processed 443,339 tons of waste and from that, produced 166,932,165 million net kilowatt hours of electricity and reduced greenhouse gases in the form of carbon equivalents by more than 443,000 tons. The historical total of municipal solid waste processed since October 1989 was 12,160,293 tons at the end of December 2018. 

OSS Health

July 23, 2019 – Mike Enriquez CEO of OSS Health spoke to our club about their hospital. They were founded on the belief that they can build a better healthcare experience. The goal of their highly trained physicians and staff is to get the patients back to an active, healthy lifestyle. OSS Health offers a full range of healthcare services at nine convenient locations in York, Adams and Cumberland Counties. And our award-winning hospital is truly a one of a kind, state-of-the-art orthopedic facility.

The OSS Health self-pay bundled program offers particular savings opportunities for persons who have their healthcare benefit provided by a self-insured entity, persons with high deductibles and co-pays, persons participating in sharing healthcare ministries, and persons who are uninsured.  They are able to offer these prices due to the lack of expense in processing the claims and the absence of risk for non-payment. 

The new West York office will offer orthopedic appointments and urgent care, imaging, pain management and therapy services. They anticipate opening September, 2019.


York College Center for Community Engagement

July 16, 2019 – Dominic DelliCarpini, Ph.D, Dean, York College Center for Community Engagement (CCE) spoke about promoting students, faculty, and staff to become stakeholders in our community. The education of York College students includes serving their community both as a way of learning and way of life.

There are currently 2 locations in York city to help to engage the students with the community. The Lafayette Club once a members-only club for local businessmen, many important decisions and deals were made within the walls of 59 East Market Street throughout history. The second location is the York College Fine Art and Graphic design center on West Philadelphia Street.

Dr. DelliCarpini also discussed project based learning which takes students and faculty out of the confines of classrooms and into surrounding communities, PBL offers the chance to connect students to real life issues. When working side-by-side, community members and students pool resources to seek solutions to current social, business, and municipal problems. This collaboration benefits all involved. By merging classroom learning outcomes with community interaction, students engage in opportunities to make learning more meaningful and more significant. They experience civic responsibility, build a strong resume, and create stronger local communities

Team River Runner

July 9, 2019 – Susan and Terry Shaffer spoke to our club about Team River Runner.  Founded in 2004 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, they offer weekly paddling sessions in more than 60 locations across the nation. Team River Runner (TRR) is more than an adaptive sports program for wounded veterans; it is an opportunity for veterans, their family members, and everyone in the community to participate.   It’s an opportunity to enjoy nature and realize its social, physical, and emotional benefits, whether it’s tackling whitewater rapids or paddling on peaceful flat-water. It’s an environment that facilitates connection, allowing veterans to reunite with their families and forge relationships with those who have endured similar pain. TRR creates purpose and community service. Susan spoke about her personal challenge to overcome her own disabilities while Terry talked about his PTSD caused by his service as a marine serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.


July 2, 2019 - Thomas Kurland DO is member of MDVIP which is a national network of primary care doctors who see fewer patients so they can focus on delivering personalized medicine and preventive care. They offer a better healthcare experience with convenience and benefits not found in most practices today.  In his MDVIP-affiliated practice, he will work together to create a personalized healthcare program, focused on wellness and prevention, to assist you in achieving your health goals.
