COBY's Check Presentation

 
 
 
 
President Dale Hamby (2017-2018) 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>.

Rotary Supports YMCA Charitable Programs

Of the many programs supported by Rotary Club of Lancaster South, the YMCA is the biggest beneficiary. Here Rip Lawhead presents a check in the amount of $5500.00 to Tracy Brunke, Marketing Director, at the YMCA. Many people think of the "Y" as a place to go workout, but that perception belies its heavy involvement in charitable activities, which is not well known. Rotary Club of Lancaster South is proud to be able to support the many worthwhile programs run by the "Y" through our biggest fund raising activities, the Magic Show held each April at the Lampeter Strasburg Performing Arts Center and the Funnel Cake Stand at the Lampeter Fair held each September. Thanks to all the people who patronize these events. You may not realize it, but you have made the lives of those less fortunate a little bit better and strengthened a bond that that helps communities flourish.

Changing of the Guard

Posted by Patrick Roberts

On Wednesday, June 26, 2013 Lancaster South Rotary held its induction of officers and presented the Rotarian of the Year Award to Gabrielle Amodeo, who guided the club to a permanent home at Boehms Church. The 2012 -2013 Rotary year was a challenge for Gabrielle with Willow Valley announcing on short notice that they were demolishing the building in which we met, scrambling to find a new facility, and all the while holding together the various community programs like the Magic Show and Funnel Cake stand that provide the funds for our charitable activities. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!

We also inducted our new Club President, Kathy Spence, who did a superb job as speaker chair this year. The Board wishes to thank all who contributed their time, energy and resources to help make our Club successful.
