On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, Meagan Given spoke to our members about the creation and success of GiveLocalYork, a 24 hour fund raising marathon founded by the York Federal Fellows Alumni Association.  The first GiveLocalYork event was held on Friday, May 4, 2018 to coincide with downtown York's First Friday promotion.  To encourage contributions to local charities, a stretch pool of $100,000 was created by Peoples Bank, the York County Community Foundation, the Power Mill Foundation, and the Arthur J. and Lee R. Glatfelter Foundation.  These funds were shared by the non-profits based on the percentage of the total funds raised by each organization.  The first GiveLocalYork effort exceeded the pre-established goal by almost $500,000! Planning is well underway for the next Giving Day to be held on Friday, May 3, 2019.

Redevelopment of the Yorktowne Hotel

On Tuesday, September 18, Jack Kay and Al Hayes, officers of the York County Industrial Development Authority (YCIDA), presented a very informative program concerning the redevelopment of the historic Yorktowne Hotel. The YCIDA purchased the Yorktowne in December 2015 in order to restore and rebuild this iconic York landmark.  Earlier this year it was announced that the hotel will be part of the Hilton Tapestry Collection of boutique hotels.  This exciting development will be a key part of the success of the project.  Jack and Al covered all aspects of the planning, including a circular drive with an entry from both Duke Street and Market Street that will offer direct access to the lobby as well as a roof top gathering area that will provide panoramic views from the 11 story structure.  Completion will occur in late 2019 or early 2020.
