Comforters Offer Warmth At Providence Shelter By Dayna M. Reidenouer

When homeless individuals check into the new Providence Shelter at Water Street Mission, 210 S. Prince St., Lancaster, they keep warm under brightly colored comforters handsewn with love. Rosene Weaver has long been a member of the sewing circle at Hammer Creek Mennonite Church. The group makes comforters that are distributed to disaster survivors and refugees by Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) as well as to homeless people by shelters in the Reading area. A comforter is made from a top pieced from squares that typically measure between 4 and 8 inches per side and a solid backing, together sandwiching quilt batting or a heavy piece of fabric. The three layers are tied together with knots made from

strong thread. The comforters are finished by binding the edges, and they measure 60 inches by 80 inches, large enough for a twin-size bed. A sewing factory in the Ephrata area closed a few years ago and donated a wealth of unused material to the sewing circle. Volunteers cut the fabric into squares, which Weaver organizes into groups for quilt tops. Weaver’s mother, Ruth Bruckhart, sews the tops, and then Weaver assembles the comforters. Erma Martin finishes the binding. Weaver noted that she does a lot of the work at home because her responsibilities at her family’s greenhouse business often prevent her from attending sewing circle meetings. “ We do this on the offseason,” Weaver remarked. “Our vocation doesn’t allow vacations, so I do staycations at home. I tie comforters in our See Providence Shelter pg 2

Hamming It Up For Winter Field Day Tango Concert Is A Family Affair By Dayna M. Reidenouer

Twice a year, amateur radio operators - colloquially known as ham radio operators - set up their equipment out of doors and attempt to contact as many people around the globe as possible. “We’re practicing for emergencies,” explained Red Rose Repeater Association (RRRA) president Daniel Boone of Willow

Street. “Disasters don’t know the seasons of the year.” Field days are 24-hour events in order to include amateur radio enthusiasts in all time zones, as well as to give individuals experience broadcasting See Winter Field Day pg 3

“What if life was so generous that your son and your wife will be on stage with you, performing your own composition, orchestrated by your own wife, with a great orchestra?” bandoneonist and band leader Héctor Del Curto posted on his Facebook page in September after his trio performed with the Stowe Tango Music Festival orchestra.

basement. It’s so therapeutic. I just love it.” Bruckhart is 82 years old and a prolific sewist. In 2019, she sewed an all-time high of 343 quilt tops for the sewing circles at Hammer Creek and Hernley Mennonite Church. “It’s a special outlet for her,” Weaver remarked. When Weaver learned about the opening of Providence Shelter and saw pictures of the white-sheeted cots, she felt compelled to contact Water Street Mission. The sewing circle prefers to send dark-colored comforters to MCC relief efforts because they tend not to show dirt. That left an assortment of lighter-colored comforters that had not yet found a home. “We thought it would be good (for them) to go to a place with a washer and dryer,” Weaver said. In all, the group had 77 comforters

available, so Martin and Weaver delivered them to Providence Shelter. As an additional service, they asked to make the beds. “For Erma and me to go in there, it was so rewarding,” Weaver said, noting that seeing the comforters put to use was one of the highlights of her life. She added that the shelter, which was created in a renovated warehouse on the Water Street Mission campus, is clean and inviting. “We created Providence Shelter so those experiencing homelessness can feel God’s protective care in their lives,” said mission president Jack Crowley. “We want guests to see how God has seen ahead to their time of need and actually used the generosity of our community and partners to prepare Water Street for their arrival, providing more than beds and a place to sleep, but an environment that reflects our spiritual need for love and dignity ... a space that can reinspire hope in the hopeless.” Content developer Che Jimenez noted that the mission had estimated it would spend $3,000 on bedding for the shelter. “The quilts saved us all that money as well as added a personal touch to our beds,” he said. “Right now, we are still accepting twin bed sheets that we need on an ongoing basis.” Readers are welcome to visit -impact/donate-goods/ to learn how they can contribute to Providence Shelter.

during the day and night. The position of the sun impacts the distance radio waves travel, Boone said. “We have access to solar radiation reports,” Boone remarked. “The next thing you know, you’re talking to a guy in Israel on 5 watts.” “That’s like walkie-talkie energy,” explained RRRA board member Doug Rice of Lancaster. “Most (easily accessible) radios are 100 watts.” Radio broadcasting is licensed by the FCC, and that includes amateur radio operators as well. “If somebody would like to get a license, we would like to help them,” said RRRA vice president Leon Hess of East Earl.

equipment to contact other operators. Additionally, as part of its goal to welcome newcomers, several seminars will be offered during the event, and interested individuals may learn about safety and technical skills such as how to cut out interfering signals. Events like the Winter Field Day enable amateur radio operators to make connections without the pressure of a stressful situation. Being able to legally and comfortably operate a ham radio can open doors to friendship, an enjoyable hobby, and public service, Boone said, adding that ham radios can operate in areas where cellphones cannot. The RRRA used to drill for Three Mile Island emergencies and still practices in case of an incident at the nuclear power plant in Peach Bottom. Two seconds after the first bomb was detonated at the Boston Marathon in 2013, the cellphone towers in a 20-mile radius were shut down. A network for 200 ham radio operators established communication between all the race checkpoints and the hospital. Several club members support endurance races in rural areas in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as well as the New York City Marathon, and Boone is regularly stationed at mile 15 of the marathon. “We’re there to watch the runners - make sure they’re not ill, not falling down - and the crowds, that nobody is causing trouble,” Boone said. There is no cost to participate in or attend the Winter Field Day. Visitors are welcome to drop in at any time during the 24-hour event, and they may bring sleeping bags or cots if they plan to stay overnight. Registration is requested so the RRRA can plan to have enough food ready for guests, and readers may email Rice at or call Boone at 717-406-6382 to register.

Knights Edge Streaks, Lead Section One at 7-0 by Ara Grigorian

Just as the wrestling team is off to an undefeated start in L-L League competition, in what has become a tight race for the top spot in Section One, the Black Knights’ 30-28 victory over Manheim Township at Landisville on Friday, January 10 improved Hempfield’s league record to 7-0 (9-4 overall) while the Blue Streaks fell to 5-2, 10-3. Sandwiched between these two section rivals are the Cedar Crest Falcons, who lost their first league game of the season on Wednesday also by a close margin and also to Hempfield, 47-46. Head coach Kendra Merrifield was asked about the sigh of relief following the two close games and the winning results. “It was a big week for us,” Merrifield agreed. “We had the kids focusing on one opponent at a time, one day at a time. We talk about winning the day - practice or game day and to keep them less focused on the standings.”

Against Township, Hempfield trailed 14-11 at the half, but managed to inch ahead by one point heading into the fourth quarter. Lindsey Durkota paced Hempfield with 12 points. Sophomore Brynne Axe, freshman Lauren Moffatt and junior Jessica Weinoldt scored four points each. Autumn Cook connected on the Knights’ lone three-pointer of the game. The team has a blend of experienced and young talent contributing in each contest. “We have four seniors who have been in the program all four years,” Merrifield noted. “We have two freshmen who have contributed to the varsity team. They have been able to gel quickly and that has helped us. “Jessica Weinoldt, who’s a junior, is basically the glue to our team,” continued the coach. “She does all the little things. She’s a defensive stickler. She prides herself on shutting down the other team’s best player.” The defense has been the key down the stretch in the close games. “Hempfield has been known for

good defense,” said Merrifield, who is an alumna of the program. “We stress playing well defensively - our assignments and overall as a team.” The Black Knights managed to hold off Cedar Crest in Wednesday’s clash at Landisville. The Falcons outscored the Knights 15-10 in the fourth quarter but came up short by one point. “Our kids really responded in the final two minutes with either a defensive stop or making key free throws,” said Merrifield. “We had been in close games prior to this, so it helped them have the confidence to close out the win.” Durkota led the team with 17 points, including a 7-for-8 night at the free throw line. Cook connected on three treys and finished with 12 points while Moffatt finished with eight. Weinoldt finished with six points. Cedar Crest’s Sarah Laney led all scorers with 20 points. WRESTLING The Hempfield wrestlers took on Manheim Township on Wednesday,

January 8. The Black Knights wrestled their way to a 51-18 victory over their arch rivals, improving to 5-0 in the Lancaster-Lebanon League. The Blue Streaks fell to 2-3. The match began with an Ian Edwards pin at 160. He downed Alex Emerich 3:37 into the bout. Though the Streaks’ Cade Clancy responded with a 2-1 decision over Dylan Bard at 170, Hempfield junior Russ Hanes pinned at 182 to increase his team’s lead to 12-3. This was followed by a close decision that went Hempfield’s way - Daniel Petka defeating Austin DeCaro 6-5 at 195. Gordy Hoover (220) also notched a pin but it was Caleb Schultz who came through with a crucial pin at 120 against a formidable foe in Micah Sams to regain momentum for the Knights. Township had claimed the previous three bouts, including a pin and two decisions. “Caleb’s match was big,” said Shane Mack, the Hempfield head coach. “I don’t know if we have a kid on our team that comes ready to fight

each match - win or lose - like Caleb.” Though Malcolm Schuyler earned Township’s second 2-1 decision of the evening, edging Clay Gainer at 126, Reagan Lefevre’s first-period pin at 132 put Hempfield back on the winning track. “There were several matches that were close prior to us pulling away,” Mack pointed out. “Our team success can be attributed to having solid and consistent wrestlers in each weight class. Each wrestler understands their role prior to the match - whether it’s scoring bonus points or preventing them.” The 33-18 lead increased to a 21point advantage on Grant Hoover’s (138) pin. The Streaks forfeited at 145 and Joel Dionne topped it off with a

pin at 152. BOYS’ BASKETBALL The boys’ team matched the result of the girls’ team on the basketball court on Friday night, defeating Manheim Township by two points. In a Section One match at Township, the Knights scored 14 fourth-quarter points to edge the Streaks 44-42 and improve to 4-3 in the L-L League. Hempfield (5-9 overall) trailed by four points at the half. In a high-scoring third stanza, both teams put up 15 points, making it 34-30 Township heading into the final period. The offensive contributions were shared by Ryan Hilton (13 pts), Conner Elslager (9 pts), Daniel Sears (8 pts) and by Daivon Edmond-Green, who scored six. Elslager connected on

In Wednesday night’s game at Cedar Crest, the Falcons pulled away in the second half of what was a twopoint game at the midway point - 3129 Crest. The Falcons, who were led by Trey Shutter, outscored the Knights 30-18 in the second half for their 6147 win. While Shutter poured in seven three-pointers to help him reach a game-high 28 points, Hilton led Hempfield with 17 points, nailing four treys. Elslager scored eight points, converting two three-point shots and going 2-for-2 at the foul line. Edmond-Green, Sam Bennett and Konnor Axe each scored six. SWIMMING On Thursday afternoon, Hempfield faced Manheim Township in the first league meet for both schools’ swim teams. The Township girls posted a 115-68 victory while the Blue Streak boys topped Hempfield 139-41. This Section One loss was the first defeat of the year for both squads as both the boys’ and girls’ teams fell to 4-1 overall. Katie Yoder, a returning senior,

captured the 50-yard freestyle in 26.11 seconds. She also anchored the 200 freestyle relay team, teaming up with fellow senior Katelyn Wiglesworth and freshmen Ann Koger and Emily Taylor to post a winning time (1:44.23). Hempfield also claimed the 400 free relay (3:48.30) thanks to Koger, Yoder, Wiglesworth and junior Maggie Shaffer. BOWLING Facing L-L League bowling opponents Lebanon and Warwick this past week, the Black Knights came up just short. On Monday, January 6, the Cedars topped the Knights 5-2 at Palmyra Bowling. On Friday, Hempfield suffered a 5-2 loss to Warwick at Leisure Lanes. Hempfield fell to 14-25. Mitchell Barnes led the Knights with a score of 604 against Lebanon. Barnes bowled a 243 in his third game. The Cedars were led by Zachary Trimmer, who bowled consistently through the afternoon, recording scores of 246, 245 and 243. Logan Moyer was the Knights’ leader against Warwick, bowling a 614, which included a top score of 223.

Participants will learn how trauma-informed care is different than trauma treatment; a strength-based action-oriented model, adapted for a high level of safety and

Tango Concert from pg 1 Lancaster Symphony Orchestra (LSO), on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 3 and 8 p.m. at Millersville University’s Winter Center, 60 W. Cottage Ave., Millersville. Del Curto will be joined by his wife, cellist Jisoo Ok, and pianist Gustavo Casenave. Del Curto and Ok’s son, 11-year-old clarinetist Santiago Del Curto, will appear as special guest. The elder Del Curto is a Grammy Award winner and a sought-after expert on the bandoneon, which is a relative of the accordion. When he was 17 years old, Del Curto was named Best Bandoneonist Under 25 in Argentina, and he was invited to join the orchestra of Osvaldo Pugliese, the Last Giant in Tango. The bandoneon is considered an essential instrument in tango music. The Jan. 18 concerts, titled “Provocative Passions,” will feature tango music, particularly from Argentina. The program

will highlight the work of Astor Piazzolla, who lived from 1921 to 1992 and is considered the master of the tango. Notably, Del Curto has performed with Piazzolla. LSO conductor Stephen Gunzenhauser arranged the Piazzolla favorites “La Muerte del Angel” (The Angel’s Death) and “Fuga y Misterio” (Fugue and Mystery) for the concert. The program will also feature “Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas” (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires), which Piazzolla said was inspired by Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.” Tickets are required for admission to the concerts and may be purchased by calling the Millersville University box office at 717871-7600 or visiting A free preconcert lecture will begin one hour before each performance time.

All PHS procedures use state-of-the-art ultrasound and EKG equipment found in most hospitals.

A board-certified vascular physician reviews and confirms all vascular screenings before the confidential report is mailed to the individual in 10 to 14 days. The six quick, painless, noninvasive health tests are carotid artery screening, which uses ultrasound to look for plaque buildup in the arteries of the neck; ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms; peripheral artery screening, which checks the arteries in the legs for poor circulation; thyroid screening; a noninvasive EKG designed to detect abnormal heart rhythms; and a heart disease risk screening that uses ultrasound. Separate costs have been set for Hempfield recCenter members and for nonmembers. Registration is required, as individuals must schedule an appointment time.

required to work as an RN or LPN. A certification is needed to serve as a CNA, but some senior care employers will help staff members obtain the certification. “We (at QPRC) do provide this education as well as pay our staff to get the education,” noted Focht. Personal care aides and medication technicians are also needed. A certification is required to serve as a med tech, with some employers providing and paying for the necessary training to staff members. “If you are serious, after 90 days (at Heatherwood), we will train and pay for the med tech certification, with the promise of a one-year employee commitment,” noted Miller. Other positions offered in the field of senior care include several roles within dining services for servers, cooks, dishwashers, prep cooks, dietary aides, and managers. Also needed are housekeepers, laundry aides and assistants, maintenance and renovations team members, activities aides, and receptionists. The field of senior care also includes home care professionals, who serve as caregivers, companions, and transportation providers to help seniors continue to live independently in their homes. Full-time, part-time, temporary, and PRN (as needed) employment opportunities are offered in the field of senior care. As facilities care for residents around the clock, employees are needed for all shifts. Nursing jobs offer a variety of options and flexibility, allowing for people craft a work schedule that

fits with their current season of life and family obligations. No matter which position they are interested in, one key attribute for senior care jobseekers to exhibit is dependability. “We’re looking for someone who is reliable and shares a passion for seniors,” explained Erdman. Other representatives from the senior care industry noted that displaying some longevity on a resume, without a lot of job hopping, is also a plus for those looking to get hired. Focht added that employers also look for individuals who have the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Experience in the industry is preferred, but not required. “Bring a positive, team-like attitude, and we will train you,” noted Miller. “These careers require a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. They are both physically and emotionally demanding, and at the same time - endlessly rewarding,” said Focht.

The field of senior care offers employment opportunities for people with a variety of skills and talents. The senior care industry includes many different positions that are vital to ensuring that senior living communities provide the best possible care for residents as they age. Representatives from the industry note that working in the field of senior care can be a rewarding career choice for individuals with a passion for helping the senior population. “One of the many perks (of working in senior care) is having the opportunity to be part of something bigger and having the opportunity each and every day to affect people’s lives in a positive way,” explained Kim Focht, director of human resources at Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community (QPRC), 625 Robert Fulton Highway, Quarryville. “Our residents are our primary focus,” noted Kelly Miller, director of sales and marketing at Heatherwood Senior Living Community, 3180 Horseshoe Pike, Honey Brook. “This is their home, and they should be made to feel important and well cared for. Patience and understanding are key. Caring about how well our residents are treated is our main focus.” For Alicia Erdman, sales director for Legend Senior Living of Lititz, 80 W. Millport Road, something she enjoys about working in the senior care industry is the “satisfaction of knowing you were able to help a family and they no longer have to worry about their loved one’s overall safety.” Nurses are in high demand to fill various roles within senior care. Retirement communities offer positions for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), and Registered Nursing Assessment Coordinators.
