The Rotary Club of York-North celebrated their 25th anniversary by adopting Olivia’s House: A Grief and Loss Center for Children as their 25th anniversary partner. As such, Rotarian club members spent one full year volunteering to help promote Olivia’s House’s mission of helping families heal after the death of a loved one. Besides fundraising, the club members rolled up their sleeves to help renovate a new counseling suite and repair existing infrastructure in the York grief center. They painted, installed lights, hung drywall, renovated a bathroom, purchased furnishings, installed carpeting, and added central air-conditioning to the new counseling floor.

Susquehannock High School senior Stevie King recently created a new logo for the York County Cooperative Job Fair. Susquehannock art teacher Wade Bowers said King worked together with Susan Workinger from the York County Economic Alliance on various concept designs for a new logo for the York County Cooperative Job Fair. “Susan and her panel chose one of Stevie’s logo concepts, and the logo is posted on their website,” said Bowers. “It is great to see a student’s work being used by a professional organization,” he said.
 
“Working on the logo for a community organization was a realistic job experience. A lot of work was involved throughout the whole process from beginning concepts to the finished logo,” said King. “I learned the value of communicating with a client in order to develop a design,” she said.  King plans to attend York College and major in graphic design. submitted photo
