In case you missed it, the Club met for a mixer to view and get a history of the antique car collection owned by Cal High. Not only did Cal have a great collection of antique cars in his museum, but also an incredible collection of antique toys, painstakingly made by hand by local and out of the area craftsmen. Great food and entertainment. Thanks to John Bomberger for making this event possible. All who attended had a great time.

President Dale Hamby presents a $1,000 check to Mark Cunningham, Executive Director of COBYS Family Services. COBYS is a Christian family service agency that provides foster care and adoption services; counseling for adults, children and families; and family life education.

COBYS plans to use the donation from Rotary Club of Lancaster South to expand its library of resources for foster children and for the families who care for these children. Caseworkers will use these books and other materials to help foster children process their experiences and to help equip foster/adoptive parents to understand and address their children's special needs.

COBYS receives funding from public and private sources. Considering state budget issues the past few years, adequate funding is not assured, and reduced public funding almost assuredly is. If you would like to help with a monetary donation, please make your check payable to COBYS Family Services, and send to 1417 Oregon Rd, Leola PA 17540. Or you can give online at cobys.org<http://cobys.org>.

The Y is not just a gym, but operates many programs that benefit the community including summer camp programs for kids, CaRE(a rehabilitative exercise program for cancer patients), health and wellness programs, youth sports and fitness programs and adult sports and recreation programs, just to name a few.

Rotary Club of Lancaster South has partnered with The Dolly Parton Imagination Library to bring free books each month to kids from birth to 5 years old, who live in the Willow Street area. Don't miss the sign up at Darrenkamp's Market in Willow Street on Saturday, November 7. Dolly Parton started her free book program for kids in East Tennessee in 1995, and it became so popular that in the year 2000 she decided to make it available to any community, that was willing to partner with her. So come out to Darrenkamp's Market on November 7, and take part in a program that has so far benefited over 914,000 kids in the USA, Canada and the U.K. Our Rotarians are ready to help!
 
At the general membership meeting on June 24, 2015, Lancaster South Rotary installed its new officers for the 2015-2016 year. Having won the vote of the membership in a poll conducted for that purpose, outgoing president, Ray D'Agostino was honored with the Rotarian of the Year award. The award was well earned as Ray demonstrated outstanding leadership while overseeing a move to Oak Leaf Manor, the Club's third home in three years. Our incoming president is Martha MacAdam, and continuing in their posts will be Bob Wintsch, Treasurer, P J Roberts, Secretary, Cy Fritz, Seargeant at Arms, and Dan Hess, Foundation Chair. 
 

Paparazzi have captured an image of the anti technology activist, Dick Kramer, flashing a dumb phone. While admittedly not all that high tech, this development is a total contradiction of his past views. When asked about this conundrum, Dick responded that since he read a news article about ten years ago that the Amish were now using cell phones, he felt comfortable not being on the cutting edge of mainstream society. Reportedly, his supporters were disappointed at this repudiation of a lifestyle they have come to emulate. What's next in Dick's future? A combination fax machine/scanner? A smart phone? Only time will tell. Keep checking back for more developments.
