York-East Rotary Club Meeting Programs

Students of the Month for February 2018

On February 20, 2018, York-East Rotarians heard the Club’s two students of the month from York Suburban High School.  Junior Zöe Hornberger and Senior Charlotte Nesbitt spoke about their accomplishments and dreams for their futures.  As always, when listening to Students of the Month, club members feel reassured that the future of America is bright.This is the template with image at the left side and floating text on the right side.
 

Master Watershed Steward Program

On February 13, 2018, Jodi Sulpizio,  the Natural Resources Educator at the Penn State Extension Service in York, spoke about the Master Watershed Steward Program.  Modeled on the Master Gardener Program, it is currently offered in 13 counties across the state. It was established to strengthen local capacity for management and protection of watersheds, streams, and rivers, by educating and empowering volunteers across the commonwealth.  2016 was York County’s first Master Watershed Steward class. The next Master Watershed Steward class will begin in late February 2018.

Every Kid in a Park

On January 23, 2018, Jackie Kramer spoke to the York-East Rotary Club about the National Park Service “Every Kid in a Park Program”.  This program is administered through the Susquehanna Heritage’s Zimmerman Center at Long Level.  The program has targeted school-age children nationwide.  Students from the eastern York County school districts and York Academy Regional Charter School in York City have participated in the program which has been very successful.  Children are taught the principles of conservation, respect for nature, to explore stream life and learn how the river has inspired folks for generations. In the past two years over 600 4th grade students have participated in the program which is delivered in the spring and/or early fall each year.  Anyone interested in the program may obtain more information from the Susquehanna Heritage Center.

Horn Farm Education Center

11/22/17 at the York East Rotary Club weekly breakfast meeting held at Heritage Hills, Rotarians learned about the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education, located at 4945 Horn Road, York Pa 17406.  Alyson Earl, the Executive Director and Jon Darby, the Education Director explained that the 186 acre farm located in Hellam Township, was donated to York County in 1981 and is now a 501C(3) agricultural education center.

Casablanca

At the November 14th meeting of the York-East Rotary Club, OLLI lecturer and film buff, Rich Santel gave a fascinating account of the development of the movie Casablanca.  It is a film which, although originally produced and released in 1942, still resonates with moviegoers today.  It was interesting that of the 40 plus members in attendance, only a handful have not ever seen the film despite it having been released 75 years ago. 

Logos Academy

On November 7, 2017, Otto Monroy spoke to the Club about Logos Academy and its goals and achievements.  Logos Academy is a faith-based Christian school focused on classical education and bringing educational opportunities to disadvantaged students.  He spoke of the disparity in graduation rates between white and black students in the public school system, 75% vs 54%, and of the large difference in reading skills between black and white public school students: black students in 12th grade read, on average, at an 8th grade level.
