Making History Fun Lititz Foundation To Host Uncharted Lancaster BY ANN MEAD ASH

ccording to Adam Zurn, his website, Uncharted Lancaster, is known for two things. “One side is history, where I highlight fascinating local history people might not be familiar with,� he said. “The other side is an adventure side.� Zurn’s adventures may end with plastic gold coins or fake gems, but he knows it is the excitement of deciphering clues to be the first to unlock the riddles that really thrills adventurers. On Saturday, Nov. 7, at 1:30 p.m., Zurn will present “Ghost Stories and Tales of Adventure With Uncharted Lancaster� via Zoom as the guest of the Lititz Historical Foundation. Zurn plans to share local legends and horrific tales associated with the River Hills area of Lancaster County, which is now partially owned by the Lancaster


Conservancy and is home to Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve. Zurn, who lives in the southern part of the county, will share his knowledge of the River Hills area near the Susquehanna River. “We have gorges and ravines and hills to climb,� he said, noting that Shenks Ferry in Conestoga Township was once a thriving village. “Today it is nothing but forest,� Zurn stated, adding that the area is now owned by the Lancaster Conservancy. “It was a vibrant community.� Zurn said that from the mid-1800s until the 1940s, Shenks Ferry included a school, a church, a post office, and lots of houses. “There was a ferry crossing (at the Susquehanna River) there,� shared Zurn. “Later they dredged coal from the Susquehanna River.� According to Zurn, the operation removed coal dust that had washed down from the coal regions after decades of coal mining from the river. In 1972, Hurricane Agnes changed the riverbed, making the dredging operation obsolete.

The Salvation Army Seeks Help To #RescueChristmas Christmas is coming, but like so much this year, it may look markedly different. Uncertainty surrounds one of the quintessential signs of the holiday - The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. With store closings across the country, a decrease in in-person visits to retail locations, and individuals carrying less cash, the red kettles may be fewer in number and might collect a reduced amount compared with previous years. In hopes of offsetting the anticipated decrease and to keep up with See Salvation Army pg 4

Forgotten Friend Reptile Shows Go Virtual Scholarship Fund Can Help Provide Programs For Students BY ANN MEAD ASH

“The kids get to meet some of the same animals (as a live show), but they get to meet some different animals as well,� said Jesse Rothacker, founder and president of Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary in Manheim, who pointed out that Gila monsters have been part of all the virtual programs the organization

has done since COVID-19 restrictions kept him from doing live shows. Rothacker sees benefits in the change. “We don’t usually bring venomous lizards, but now that we’re doing it virtually, (students) can be up close to the nose of a Gila monster and actually see the beady texture of their skin without liability or concern for the schools or teachers.� To allow Rothacker to bring more information

3-DAY Gardner’s Mattress & More Marks 30 Years HARVEST SALE EVENT Gardner’s Mattress & More is celebrating 30 years of serving Lancaster County. The business was founded as Gardner’s Bedrooms in 1990 by Jim Gardner, who sold it to Ben McClure and Jeff Giagnocavo when he retired in 2010. McClure and Giagnocavo met as buyer and seller 18 years ago. Giagnocavo was a sales representative, selling products to Gardner’s Bedrooms, and McClure was the showroom and selling manager. When Gardner retired, the two younger men decided to form a partnership to buy the business, pledging a commitment to five-star service, experience, and products for their customers. Together, Giagnocavo and McClure have written buying guides, hosted seminars, and held events to connect with the community and educate the public on the ways Gardner’s Mattress & More can meet individuals’ sleep needs. The business partners introduced the Dream Room and customer lounge shopping

concepts, and they give back to the community with the Gardner’s Gives Back food drive. Gardner’s Mattress & More has won 11 consecutive Reader’s Choice Awards for Lancaster’s Favorite Mattress Store. In February, Giagnocavo published “Sleep Better,” and free copies may be obtained by stopping by the store, 830 Plaza Blvd., Lancaster, during October. “It’s the culmination of his experience and knowledge base and clearly identifies where people struggle to get quality sleep and how we might be able to help them in our store,” McClure commented. “Of course, nothing in the book was written in a vacuum,” Giagnocavo added. “We succeed together as a team, and at Gardner’s, I’m the abrupt, hard-charging personality in the company, always pushing to do better. Along the way, Ben’s steady demeanor, customer service, and leadership skills have

been a perfect fit with my skills of marketing and customer experience touch points. There is no way each of us reaches this point in time alone. Our company and our customers are truly better with us working together.” The three decades of Gardner’s existence have seen ebbs and flows in the mattress business. Waterbeds surged in popularity, then plateaued, before nearly disappearing. Gardner’s was the first Lancaster County retailer to carry the novel Tempur-Pedic offerings, beginning in 2002. The two-sided, flippable mattress design fell out of vogue, but it has returned full force, and more than 25 models are displayed in Gardner’s showroom. The last five years have been turbulent in the mattress world, with direct-toconsumer offerings increasing in number and options. The online companies’ return policies prompted Gardner’s to take another look at its customer exchange service, creat-

But you can greatly reduce your chance of catching the flu and spreading it to others by getting a flu shot. And if you do catch the flu, the vaccine can reduce the severity of your illness.

ing its Wake Up Happy Comfort Guarantee, which says, “If you don’t love your mattress, we’ll exchange it for one you do love, with no fees, costs, or delivery charges.” Buying mattresses is a highly subjective process, Giagnocavo explained. “We can offer, spec for spec, the highest quality mattresses at each price point possible, and yet, when we put 10 people on any one mattress, we will get 10 very different opinions,” he said. “Our bodies are all built differently, and we all have unique aches and pains along with some having intense medical issues. While we aren’t doctors and don’t pretend to be, everything we demonstrate and discuss with our customers can be felt and experienced by them in a positive way in which they feel better.

same period last year. In addition to the need for food relief, housing has been a main focus of The Salvation Army’s recent service. With many Americans owing money for missed rent or mortgage payments, the organization anticipates a substantial increase in requests for emergency financial help for expenses such as rent/mortgage payments, utility bills, and food. Locally, The Salvation Army has provided almost $13,000 in rental and utility assistance since March. “ We have served over 10,000 meals with our food relief assistance so far during this pandemic,” Satterlee reported. “In addition, we have clocked thousands of hours of disaster relief, social service, and emotional spiritual care given by dozens of employees and volunteers during this time.” Since 1865, The Salvation Army has been providing social and spiritual services to communities around the world. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Forgotten Friend from pg 1 because so many of the schools are trying to figure out day to day,” he said. “We want to alleviate some costs by offering free or discounted programs through our scholarship fund.” Rothacker explained that partial scholarships could lower the cost of a program significantly. According to Rothacker, virtual shows are similar to live shows, but they offer an additional multimedia presentation. Different programs are developed for high school and college-age students. “I take a program and present it differently to each audience,” said Rothacker. “With elementary or preschool, it is heavier on interactive hand motions and repeating words.” For older students, Rothacker may tackle weightier subjects. The saga Rothacker calls “Our Virtual Journey” began when the state was shut down by COVID-19 restrictions in March. “May through September is our main season for programs,” said Rothacker, who noted that of 200 yearly shows, about 150 occur in spring and summer. “Our season was crushed,” he said.

The situation sent Rothacker on a mission to provide contact-free safe options that will give the schools some of the tools they need for environmental science supplements that include classroom visitors. Rothacker was initially hesitant to go virtual, but he moved forward, investing in lighting, a greenscreen, and other electronic equipment, and he soon began to recognize the power of virtual presentations. “With alligators, they have more than a thousand sensory organs that look like little black dots on their faces and tongues,” he said. “In person, the closest our audience gets is about 6 feet, but (virtually) when we do a closeup, they can see the little black dots.” Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit reptile rescue and education group that has been based in Lancaster County since 2004. Readers who would like to know more may visit https://forgottenfriend.org or search for “Forgotten Friend Reptile TV” on www.youtube.com or “Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary” on Facebook.

The presentation was originally scheduled on March 14, but COVID-19 restrictions resulted in postponing the event more than once. “Finally, Cory (Van Brookhoven, president of the Lititz Historical Foundation), decided to do it via Zoom,” Zurn said. “Since it is (being held) pretty close to Halloween, I will include some ghost stories and spooky legends.” One such event that occurred in River Hills was an enormous explosion that shattered windows more than a mile away. “On June 9, 1906, at 12:42 p.m., a dynamite factory (C. R. McAfee Powder & Oil Co.) exploded at Shenks Ferry,” said Zurn. The blast, which involved about 2,500 pounds of dynamite, blew up a building known as the punch house, which is where the dynamite was placed in paper tubes to be packed in 50-pound wooden

cases. “Eleven men were killed,” said Zurn. According to reports, the explosion was heard as far north as Manheim Township. Zurn noted that families are often inspired to go exploring based on his presentation. “I get messages from people who say, ‘My kid doesn’t like walking to the mailbox … but he walked 4 miles today and never complained, and it was all because we were searching for treasure.’” The presentation is free; however, the Zoom link is limited to 100 participants, so registration on a first-come, first-served basis is necessary. Readers who wish to register may search for “Ghost Stories and Tales of Adventure With Uncharted Lancaster” at www.eventbrite.com.

about a number of different types of reptiles, including box turtles, boa constrictors, alligators up to three feet, geckos, and tortoises, to students from prekindergarten through college, across the county and beyond, the organization instituted the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary Scholarship Fund in 2019. Rothacker reported that the fund was initiated by grants from Refreshing Mountain Camp and Ephrata National Bank. Rothacker explained that as a nonprofit that serves nonprofits, the scholarship fund could benefit organizations such as schools, churches, and Scouting groups, for which the up to $400 pricetag of a Forgotten Friends program could be an issue. “We aren’t $1,000, but we aren’t $50,” said Rothacker, who noted that the main revenue source for the rescue is programming. “We have so many good groups that want to host our programs,” he said. Rothacker has a particular interest in how virtual reptile programs can help schools fulfill environmental science curriculums. “ We wanted scholarship funds available

If God did not want us to have an acve role in His plans, He would not have called us to acon repeatedly throughout Scripture. Again and again, from Genesis to Revelaon, He calls on His people to act, to stand against evil, and to stand up for the needy and vulnerable (Isaiah 6:8, Mahew 28:18-20, Ephesians 5:11, Proverbs 29:2, Proverbs 31:8-9). If we sit on the sidelines while every good thing our naon stands for is destroyed, we will have violated far more Scripture than the handful of passages that may be misused to jusfy inacon. Chrisans oenmes ignore geng involved in the vong process for several reasons: (1) they don’t believe their vote counts, (2) they have been misinformed, or (3) they have never done it; therefore, it’s hard to break the ice. We encourage you to pray and ask God to help you break free from these fears. We are all called upon to do the right thing. The hard part is ďŹ nding the courage to stand up, to stand in the gap. However, standing in the gap is the only way to stop this storm. Many Chrisans do not vote because of pressure from their church and community. It is me to fully reverse that habit. We are all called upon to do the right thing. The hard part is ďŹ nding the courage to stand up, to stand in the gap. Inially, you may be judged for doing so. But standing in the gap for good is the only way to stop this storm.

Here’s what you can do today to save the country from violent mobs, immorality, and evil: 1. Get registered to vote. If you’re registered already, decide how you’ll vote. You can vote early by mail, or in-person. Call us and we’ll help you beer understand the opons Pennsylvania oers: 717-690-1620. 2. Talk to everyone about why you are vong and why they should too. 3. Pray for our naon and our naon’s leaders. Please act. You don’t want to wake-up the day aer the 2020 elecon wishing you had done more to save your community and your country.



In the United States, 40% of Chrisans do not vote.

MERCHANDISER - Warwick Edition -


Entering the Bench Mark facility on East Liberty Street in Lancaster is a little like entering a secret club. A short hallway leads to a door that opens into a room filled with serious weightlifting equipment. The brightly colored walls are covered with graffitilike artwork paying homage to superheroes. According to founder and executive director Will Kiefer, the design is intentional. “We filled the space with color because we want it to be energetic,â€? said Kiefer. “We want it to be something that for (students who participate) feels very special,â€? he added, noting that the organization serves those ages 14 to 24. Most students are referred by a probation officer, therapist, or guidance counselor. Kiefer added that many students who come to Bench Mark to exercise are often caring for younger siblings at home. “When they come here, they have a place of respite ‌ just to be out and exercising,â€? he said. Kiefer keeps the fridge stocked, and there are videos and planned discussions. “Sometimes kids need a space that’s cool to connect with positive people,â€? he said. “ We have almost everything a kid could want to do workout-wise.â€? However, according to Kiefer, Bench Mark is much more than a place to lift weights. “(When students) come in, they see the gym, but what they don’t see right away at the front of the gym are these two computers.â€? The computers are there because Bench Mark helps students with resume writing and job searching for both part-time and full-time jobs. “They walk right past (the computers), and that’s fine with us, but as

we work with them (we) transition from ‘Let’s just exercise together’ to ‘Let’s talk about what you want to do.’� At the request of Lancaster’s probation department, Bench Mark launched Strength Based Skill Building (SBSB) in 2018. Transportation to the program is provided within a 12-mile radius. “A judge will look at a kid and say, ‘I think you will benefit from this type of fitness-based mentoring,’� said Kiefer, who developed the six-month program that covers foundational principles including legal life skills, common sense money fundamentals, mindfulness to engage focus, fitness, and what Kiefer calls “authentic communication.� “That’s teaching them to communicate in ways they haven’t before,� explained Kiefer. Bench Mark also offers a Student Leadership Program (SLP), which teaches students how to run the gym. The trainees meet weekly to learn to handle daily responsibilities and help students determine goals. “They have to show up at every meeting, commit to a regular work schedule, and be a resource to students,� said Kiefer. John Deslippe, who recently gradu-

ated from Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, completed SLP and works at Bench Mark. He said that working there gives him a chance to give back. “When I was a student, it was an outlet with positive role models,� he said. “I learned how to work out and how to use working out as a way to blow off steam.� Bench Mark has planned an unusual fundraiser for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 24 and 25. The event will combine a 5K race with bench press reps or pushups. The 5K and pushups may be done virtually. The bench press will be held at Bench Mark, 341 E. Liberty St., Lancaster. Bench Mark is currently open from 3 to 8 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays. More information about the program and the fundraiser may be found at www.benchmarkprogram.org.

Wilamenia Rosa, a household facilitator and certified nursing assistant at Landis Homes, received the Distinguished Service Award as Direct Caregiver of the Year by LeadingAge PA. Rosa was selected from a group of exceptional employees from across the state who were nominated by their organizations.

Because of current restrictions due to COVID-19, this year’s conference was held virtually from Aug. 18 to 21, with attendees logging on from their locations. Landis Homes hosted a

tate the series. The sessions will focus on managing work stress, communicating with one’s spouse, and connecting with and advocating for oneself. Readers may register for one or all of the sessions. For more details and registration, readers may visit www.mhalancaster.org.

Principal Kyla Hockley (left) and the Rev. Dan Powell, executive pastor of St. John Neumann Catholic School, untied the ribbon that opened the new school on Sept. 8.

St. Anne School brings to life St. John Neumann Catholic School.” Following the prayer and the pledge, student Abby Klein played “America” on the keyboard. Powell noted, “Our school is so much more than teachers and students. The school is a place where the body of Christ is alive and well … where each person’s unique gifts are discovered and refined and where faith and virtue come alive. Today we ask God’s blessings on the physical signs of His loving presence.” Powell went on to bless the flags, clocks, and crucifixes with holy water. He also blessed the students and their families. The Most Rev. Ronald Gainer, bishop of the Diocese

of Harrisburg, visited the school to bless it on Sept. 24. The new school boasts 10 classrooms to accommodate kindergarten through eighthgrade students. There is also a computer lab; a multipurpose room, which serves as a cafeteria and a gym; and offices. The St. John Neumann Parish Center has also been renovated to include classrooms for prekindergarten, art, music, library, algebra, and instructional support. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the school offers both in-person and virtual classes, but in-person class sizes are limited to allow for social distancing. Readers who would like more information may visit www.sjncslancaster.org.

Virtual Auction Raises Funds For Hospice Due to the ongoing pandemic and to ensure the health and safety of the community, Hospice & Community Care held its annual Labor Day Auction virtually from Sept. 1 through 15 and raised more than $450,000. The pro-

ceeds will go toward Hospice & Community Care’s work in providing end-of-life care and support to patients and their families, regardless of their ability to pay, according to Bonnie Jess Lopane, vice president and chief develop-

ment officer. During the virtual auction, more than 960 people from across the country placed bids on vacations, jewelry, handmade quilts, art, sports memorabilia, used cars and more. In addition, Hospice & Community Care’s Day of Care Auction,

where participants buy days or weeks of hospice care to be given to families in need, raised more than $31,000. In support of the Virtual Labor Day Auction, Hospice & Community Care’s volunteers helped to transport items and served as social media ambassadors.

When about 90 students and more than 50 spectators gathered along with teachers and administrators outside the new St. John Neumann Catholic School (SJNCS), formerly, St. Anne School, on the morning of Sept. 8, it was with excitement for the future and reverence for the past. New principal Kyla Hockley opened the ceremony of blessing by saying, “Today we honor a new chapter - looking with hope to the future, while anchoring ourselves in the proud tradition of St. Anne School.” St. Anne School, located at St. Anne Church on Liberty Street, Lancaster, was founded in 1924. Discussion surrounding the possibility of relocating had been ongoing for the past two decades. In the fall of 2018, members of St. John Neumann Parish, 601 E. Delp Road, Lancaster, launched a capital campaign for the purpose of building a new education center and renovating the church to allow for additional classrooms. On Feb. 2, 2020, a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new school was held and Wohlsen Construction began to build, following designs by Ted Vedock. On March 19, when the state mandated closing all nonessential businesses, construction stopped

until May 1. A new construction schedule allowed for the school to be ready to open on Sept. 8. “This moment in history comes as a result of trust in God’s plan and God’s time,” said Hockley. “And so we begin by giving our praise and thanksgiving to God.” The Rev. Dan Powell, executive pastor of SJNCS, then led the dedication, saying, “Today we inaugurate this school dedicated to education.” He welcomed Hockley to the SJNCS family and thanked outgoing principal Suzanne Wood. He also acknowledged those in attendance who had made contributions, including representatives of Wohlsen; the Knights of Columbus; St. John Neumann 12532, which donated crucifixes for each classroom; the American Legion, which donated the classroom flags; and Charles Snyder Funeral Home, which donated the classroom clocks. To open the first day in the traditional way, Hockley asked students to come forth to lead a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. “It is fitting that today we celebrate the birthday of our school, and we also celebrate the blessed mother’s birthday,” said Hockley. “St. Anne, our school’s patroness, gave birth to the blessed mother (the mother of Jesus), and today,

citizenship, first aid, personal fitness, and personal management. In addition, Aidan participated in an eight-day trip to Yosemite National Park during which he and his fellow Scouts hiked more than 60 miles in a five-day period. He completed his requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout by planning and overseeing the reconstruction of compost bins at Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum. His project included the clean-up and removal of an old, oversized bin, and the building of four new, more user-friendly bins.

Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania encourages the public to consider striving for 20-20-20 in 2020. Many people may be experiencing more screen time since the COVID19 pandemic began. Many people are spending more time with Zoom meetings, webinars, and other video conferencing at work. At home, they may use their mobile phone and laptop and watch television. Children are also at risk for eye strain with schools practicing safe distancing by teaching via computers.



School administrators and teachers should be aware that breaks are necessary. Designed to reduce eye fatigue, the 20-20-20 rule states that for every 20 minutes of screen time, an individual should look away at something at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Regular screen breaks can give the eyes some much-needed rest and help prevent eye strain. The 20-20-20 rule should be followed by people of all ages. For more information on eye health, readers may visit www.vrocp.org.
