A note from Fig
City L A N C A S T E R C I T Y has a rich history of creativity. For decades, artists of national acclaim have chosen to call the city home—like artist Jerome Hershey who is celebrating 40 years—and new artists are honing their skills and finding their voice here. Our fall art issue pays homage to those who are forging their path in the art world, including those making Lancaster City a destination for new forms of art like filmmaking. On the following pages, we are celebrating some of the creatives who are crafting the future of our beloved city by painting outside of the lines. In this issue, you will also be re-introduced to an old friend who has undergone a magical transformation. After completing their historic renovation project, the Fulton Theatre is ready to welcome you back through their doors into beautiful new spaces for the performing arts. No longer one building, this majestic theatre now calls the entire block its home. This expansion is cause for celebration for the entire community—the partners who worked on the project, the donors who made it possible, and everyone who kept the hope alive with their support last year.

Alicia on the front porch of her State Farm office.
Fresh Face: Alicia Alexander A L I C I A A L E X A N D E R State Farm is a woman-owned small business providing quality insurance services to the community. Alicia is especially committed to helping those who have little to no understanding about insurance because she remembers being that customer. “The knowledge of what you’re buying is so important, and so few people understand it. Before I started [working with State Farm], I paid thousands of dollars to my insurance company and had no idea what was covered and what wasn’t, and I was not adequately covered.” After joining the State Farm network and receiving extensive training in policies and products, Alicia is determined to share what she learned with others. 6
1265 Lititz Pike
With the resources and network of the number one insurance company in the U.S. and the personal approach of a small business, Alicia and her team educate clients about what type of coverage to consider based on their individual needs. “We are not salespeople; we are advisors. It’s our job to help people manage risk and provide financial services. We are here to help people figure out what needs protecting and make an educated decision about what product is best for them.” Alicia is passionate about Lancaster and excited to join the ecosystem of small businesses in the area. “There are many opportunities in State Farm,
but I wanted to be in this city, where thriving and connecting is important to people. I’m excited for the opportunity to support other small businesses in my community.” Lancaster is an evergrowing network of locally-owned shops, restaurants, and artisans. With a dedication to serving customers and a genuine heart for the neighborhood, Alicia is going to fit right in. If you are interested in discussing your needs for insurance coverage, you can call or stop by the Alicia Alexander State Farm office.

D O W N T O W N L A N C A S T E R has proudly worn the badge of being an “up and coming” culinary hotspot over the years, but the arrival of Chef Rikku Ó’Donnchü at Amorette is a clear indication that our time has finally come. After nearly 15 months of shuttering its doors, this beloved Lancaster beacon of gastronomic refinement has been reborn through the eyes of this Michelin-recognized chef. The revival is a groundbreaking triumph for the Lancaster food scene, but also proves to be a larger culinary revelation for American fine-dining as a whole.
“Itowant locals be open to being challenged...” Chef Rikku Ó’Donnchü
Indeed, through a newly designed menu Chef Ó’Donnchü has transformed Amorette’s dining room into a playground of evocative theatrics —an immersive experience that will have guests questioning the accuracy of their own senses, as well as their aptitude for foresight. “There’s a lot of reveal. There’s a lot of mystery. There’s a lot of suspense, and there’s a lot of storytelling with each dish,” Chef Ó’Donnchü explains. “It’s like a circus for the senses.” Recently honored by AAA and named Best Global Chef by World Luxury Restaurant Awards, Chef Ó’Donnchü is world-renowned for his work in what some have coined “molecular gastronomy”—an expressionist, scientific approach to cooking that includes sleight of hand tricks, multi-sensory engagement, and mind-boggling presentations. One example: levitating food. Yes, you read that correctly. “We’ll only be the second restaurant in the world to do that,” says Chef Ó’Donnchü, citing Salvador Dalí and the band Tool as inspiration for his creativity. This surrealist aesthetic is woven throughout the menu and across Amorette’s walls, which now exhibit an updated art collection that mirrors his love for the otherworldly. The result of merging Chef Ó’Donnchü’s artistic genius and Amorette’s meticulous standards of service— which had previously earned them the AAA Four Diamond and Wine Spectator Two Glass Best of Award of Excellence—is plush, poetic, and borderline hypnotic; a deeply engaging taste experience few in this corner of the country have seen. But despite his long list of accomplishments and professional ambitions, Lancastrians will find they
“There’s a lot of
reveal, mystery, suspense, and there’s a lot of storytelling with each dish.”
have more in common with Chef Ó’Donnchü than they think. “I love the city. It reminds me of where I grew up in Nottinghamshire,” he says, recalling his early childhood in the UK. A father, husband, and self-proclaimed empath, Chef Ó’Donnchü sees the team in his kitchen as family and is eager to introduce the city to his avant-garde food, acknowledging its unfamiliarity. “I want locals to be open to being challenged,” he notes, “because being uncomfortable isn’t always a bad thing, right? It can lead to something new.” He goes on to recount that, however contemporary they may look, these dishes aren’t being fabricated in a lab full of petri dishes and test tubes. As has always been the case, the Amorette menu starts with locally sourced, fresh produce and abides by a 95% non-wasted policy—which encourages the team to be innovative with “leftover” ingredients. The Lancaster food scene is ready for its day in the sun, and Chef Rikku Ó’Donnchü is leading the way at Amorette, beckoning Lancastrians to bask in its glow. “We will be keeping tables open for locals. And we’re looking forward to them giving us a chance!” he says. Your opportunity for an immersive dining experience awaits. Visit amorette.com to reserve your seats for the show.

so I have a big love and heart for Lancaster County and the surrounding community. I’m still out and about every day and still meeting people; [real estate] is a best of both worlds transition for me.” Her interest in real estate began a couple of years ago when she and her husband were looking for their first house. “It started when we built our townhome from the ground up. I became so fascinated with the home building and buying process. I love interior design, and I’m hyper-organized.” One look at her Instagram will reveal that Corinne has excellent taste, and Cell: 717.875.2725
she uses her creative talent to help others build a life they love in a home that’s just right. Corinne has a lively personality and strives to make homebuying as easy and fun as possible.

He quickly realized that serving singers at the start of their careers with a place to perform and hone their craft will position our community as a regional destination for professional arts training. With his love of opera, Scott also had the desire to enhance the vibrant Lancaster City arts scene by creating Penn Square Music Festival and strengthening and empowering
the existing OperaLancaster. In addition, as a music educator, he is committed to providing a nurturing environment for young musicians. Thus, Penn Square Music Conservatory was founded.

Owner Rebecca Addington in her new space with brand manager Michael Chiodo
Fresh Face: Ville & Rue T H I S F R E S H FA C E is getting a new coat of paint! Lancaster’s very own Ville & Rue, run by local retail expert and interior designer Rebecca Addington, has moved to King Street. And the space itself isn’t the only change this eclectic home furnishings showroom has undergone—Rebecca has also expanded her offerings, her team, and her vision for Ville & Rue’s potential. Rebecca, who has a formal education in both communication and interior design, has always had a penchant for retail; her first job at a York County gift shop lit the initial spark. After embarking down several different career paths, it was her job as an interior design manager that helped her connect the dots between the creativity she loved and the leadership in which she excelled. “But it was always my dream to open my own company,” she clarifies, “and it was always my dream to live in Lancaster.” In November 2019, Rebecca’s wishes were
granted when she opened the doors to the first Ville & Rue location in 101NQ. Just a few short months later, the pandemic hit. But those who know Rebecca are familiar with her unshakeable optimism and tenacity. She used this time to reevaluate Ville & Rue’s direction. “The thing that really kept us going was our design services,” Rebecca recalls. “But I realized it would be impossible for me to do that and run my business.” Enter Michael Chiodo, a dear friend and Lancaster native, who was a perfect fit for the job. With his help, she was able to grow Ville & Rue from a home furnishings store to a full-scale design studio. Rebecca’s new storefront, which is nestled at the bottom of the historic early 1900s Beaux-Arts style Kirk Johnson building, boasts Frenchstyle display windows that flood the showroom with natural light. Its tall ceilings are accentuated
by decorative white moldings of a bygone era. Industrial elements, which were added later for present-day functionality, contrast for an eclectic aesthetic that echoes Ville & Rue’s. Here, Rebecca offers complimentary design services that include a free in-home consultation (with a refundable deposit after purchase), design boards, renderings, floor plans, and even an upholstery program. She oversees the entire process for clients from selection to delivery. As for her signature style? While the words cozy, worldly, and chic come to mind, Rebecca says it’s all about the taste of the client. “We love meeting new people, and helping any way we can—especially when it comes to their home becoming a personal reflection of their lifestyle!” Visit Ville & Rue’s new space on 8 West King Street to get some inspiration for your next remodel.

BIG PICT U R E LANCASTER IS THE FUTURE OF F I L M .

started when I was a kid...I got in trouble for skipping class to see movies. I moved to the U.S. knowing I wanted to be a filmmaker, and sought any and all opportunities before and after graduating to get involved in the film industry.
is a lot like the Midwest, and the inner city is very similar to cities all across the U.S. while still being unique. It’s just a special place, vibrant with creativity and art, and it’s changing rapidly. You might not believe this, but Lancaster is the only place in the U.S. that I’ve heard my native language (Kinyarwanda) spoken on the streets. It makes no sense that someone from Rwanda would be in Lancaster County making films, but Lancaster has a way of pulling people here, and once you get plugged in, you don’t want to leave.

Fig: What is your favorite part of the filmmaking process? ES: I enjoy the work that goes in ahead
Fig: How did you get started in film? AB: I grew up in Rwanda. You could say it
Andrew Bilindabagabo INGOMA FILMS | ingomafilms.com Fig: What is your filmmaking style/aesthetic? AB: People who hire me know they’re getting someone who is passionate and deeply interested in telling the human story. Human stories that highlight the worthy and uplift the marginalized. When making a film, we really value collaboration. Like jazz – we approach it with organized improvisation.
Fig: What inspires you? AB: Carley, my wife, is an invaluable part of
INGOMA. Our partnership is the cornerstone of our business. She is incredible at putting ideas into action. The truth is, for a long time, I was making films, but I did not have a company. It was Carley’s idea to start the company and merge our efforts. And we just welcomed our first child. I look at this little miracle, and there are infinite possibilities, infinite joy, and sadness to be had, which inspires me.
different Bantu languages across Africa. In some places, it means the drum or the song played on it. In Rwanda ingoma also refers to the throne of the precolonial king. INGOMA Films is rooted in these ideals of traditional storytelling, vibrance, creativity, and longevity stretching back millennia, but it’s also connected to this place. By naming a company in Lancaster INGOMA, we’re standing out in precisely the ways that the many refugees and immigrants, who now call this place home, stand out and add their cultures, values, and perspectives to the ecosystem. We think that our global perspective adds to the conversation in an interesting way and hopefully creates more nuanced films. We want to tell specific stories that are significant to the local individual while having a global impact.
“There are many benefits to creating films in Lancaster, and the industry is growing with each new project.”

When we start something, we won’t stop until we get it done, and get it done well!
Fig: What is your favorite part of the filmmaking process? DD: I’ve held just about every role in the
filmmaking process, but as I’ve grown and recognized my strengths, I realize I’m best as an Executive Producer that’s building the team and connecting the dots. I love finding the vision for a project and making sure everyone is aligned working towards the same common goal.

So many different filmmakers have such strong creative vision that we get behind. Our goal at LampHouse is to try to figure out the mechanisms to bring consistent work through Lancaster so that everybody benefits and that we can all collaborate on bigger things.
down with somebody and talking about their story. I’m also inspired by music because I’m a musician as well (I play the piano). Music is so complementary to film. Just think about it: what would Star Wars be without the Darth Vader theme?
Fig: How did you get started in film? DD: I’ve had a camera in my hands since I
Fig: Does that same desire to capture a moment drive your current work? DD: Oh definitely. We just finished a three-
part documentary series about the state of democracy in our world, specifically this country, Dismantling Democracy. It got nominated for an Emmy Award, which was great.
Another example is the feature film we’re shooting in September with Jared Harris, Brave The Dark. It’s a true story about a high school kid in Lancaster. I love telling true stories [in particular], stories about someone who faced hardships and overcame them.
Fig: What makes Lancaster ideal for filmmaking? DD: Lancaster is an amazing place to start
a business and build relationships, especially for the film industry. We’re a connected community of hard-working creatives with a “make it happen” mentality.
And he brings his writing chops and stories— we have very complementary skill sets that way. The interplay of technology and art also inspires me. Cameras are tiny computers with electrical sensors in the front, but I like asking the question: how do we wield this thing to create a beautiful, lifelike organic image?
Fig: Describe the filmmaker community in Lancaster. MS: The community is so collaborative.
Fig: What inspires you? DD: What inspires me the most is just sitting
was 10 years old. My dad had one of those old shoulder VHS tape cameras, and I wasn’t doing narrative filmmaking. I was more of a scribe, and I was obsessed with capturing the moments that are temporary and preserving them for the future.

Fig: What are you working on right now? MS: We are working on a coming-of-age
Michael Schmucker LAMPHOUSE FILMS lamphousefilms.com
Fig: What is your favorite film? MS: I’ve put a lot of thought into this
survival movie, and it’s pretty much tailormade for the area. In the past, our role was to help bring outside productions to Lancaster and use our resources to make movies. Now we’ve got several scripts coming off the ground and several others that we’re optioning that will be developed from the ground up by Lancaster creatives.
(I had to because everyone asks this question). I’m a bit of a nerd, and I also love the artistry and craft of filmmaking, so the movie that by far most encapsulates authentic, incredible filmmaking is The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. It’s the perfect blend of my interests, filmmaking craft, and just pure nostalgia.
Fig: What inspires you? MS: I like films that you can feel tonally...very atmospheric, mood pieces. LampHouse Films is owned by myself and my business partner, Josh Henry. We partnered up in 2014, and I always joke that I used to make really beautiful films that weren’t about anything before he came along. (laughs)

Fresh Face | Welcoming new businesses to Lancaster City
F Lili Speros and Beth Ann Vulopas
Fresh Face: Chestnut Street Investment Counsel D O YO U K N O W the difference between stockbrokers and investment fiduciaries? Beth Vulopas explains: a brokerage firm hires brokers to execute investment trades for a commission. Independent investment firms—like Chestnut Street Investment Counsel, which she owns and operates—manage each client’s portfolio with no brokerage conflicts of interest. “We are clientcentered and totally independent.” “We don’t sell any products,” says Beth. “Our job is to manage and grow each client’s individual security portfolio. It’s very tailored value-investing and unique to each client.” Even if her clients do not understand this distinction by definition, they can certainly feel it in the service that she and her team provide. “If you call us, we’ll answer the phone. We’re very interactive with our clients, especially
through turbulent times such as last year,” Beth remarks. Along with her 25 years of experience in Lancaster’s financial industry, this philosophy is what has been setting Chestnut Street apart since its official opening in July of 2020. This is not to mention its impeccably designed, irresistibly cozy office space. From its whitewashed brick fireplace to the art collection adorning its walls, Beth has curated a warm aesthetic that instantly breaks down clients’ preconceived notions of what a “firm” might look like. Something else you might not expect? How Beth and her team genuinely welcome questions about the investment process. “There is no fee for you to stop in and learn more,” Beth assures. “Our door is always open.” 144 East Chestnut Street
Being Lancaster born and raised, it was important to Beth that her office was located downtown, which allows her to stay connected to the city. She is enthusiastic about Lancaster’s younger generations committing to their wealth beyond instant-gratification trading apps like “Robinhood” and learning about investing as a long-term venture. Beth remembers teaching her own children when they entered college; encouraging them to research and invest in stocks they were passionate about. Because of this practice, her daughter was recently able to buy her first home, proving that with patience and diligence, anyone can grow their wealth and reach their short and long-term financial goals. It all starts with a conversation—so stop into Chestnut Street Investment Counsel’s welcoming space on 144 East Chestnut Street for a chat.

Today, signs of creativity are visible everywhere— in galleries, on facades, on plates, and on stages. The creative community is weaving a new narrative, one of hope and change. We encourage you to find an artist whose work speaks to you and listen to what they have to say.

The Foundation operates the Demuth Museum at 120 East King Street, featuring a rotating selection of Demuth works from the collection along with special exhibits. In 2014, the Foundation merged with the Lancaster Museum of Art, a communityfocused museum housed in the Grubb Mansion at 135 North Lime Street that highlights local and regional artists as well as national touring exhibitions. They look forward to many more years of fulfilling their mission of promoting the appreciation and awareness of the visual arts in Lancaster through preserving the legacy of Charles Demuth and his artwork, supporting local and regional artists, and inspiring a new generation of creatives.
KAREN SCHORY PHOTOGRAPHER AND PRINTMAKER
213 OLD TRINITY PLACE • diptych
Most of the inspiration for my photographs and prints comes from travel. Especially travel to other cultures, other worlds. So when I found myself unable to travel during this pandemic, I turned to virtual travel and online photography courses including the Masters of Photography course by Joel Meyerowitz to help maintain my creative juices. Meyerowitz is perhaps the most influential mentor of my long career. One of the projects Joel assigns is to see your neighborhood in a fresh way. I live in Lancaster City just a block from Penn Square and love the sense of history here. I had heard about Old Town and started researching the specific area. Last October I found the perfect autumn day with late afternoon light casting long shadows into the past. As Joel says, ‘You enter a place and then a little bit of magic happens. And that’s photography.’ These three diptychs represent a larger series of ten prints. The images are Old Town’s gifts to me and my visual gifts to you.”

Eliance Health Solutions E L I A N C E H E A LT H S O L U T I O N S believes that the Lancaster business community deserves affordable health coverage that’s just as people-centered as the city itself. That’s why, since 2016, they’ve been partnering with Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health to offer locally-minded health plans designed not only to save employers money, but to genuinely improve the wellbeing of their employees along the way. Looking at healthcare differently, Eliance Health Solutions places an active emphasis on stellar customer service and is focused on reducing costs for members by providing resources through Wellness programs. In these programs, they offer services such as screenings, flu shots, health coaching and incentives. This gives employers the opportunity to reduce their annual deductible, while ultimately improving the quality of life for employees. One such company that has seen the measurable impact of Eliance’s plan is Dutchland Inc., located in Gap. Steve Grosh, Dutchland’s Manager of Human Resources, made integrating wellness into the company culture a priority in 2008. “At Dutchland, we see wellness and healthcare as holistic—we care about our employees’ wellbeing, and that of their families, on and off the job,” Steve explains. After working for many years to build and implement numerous wellness strategies for the company, Steve was eager to partner with an organization that was aligned with the program he worked so hard to build. Since partnering with Eliance Health Solutions in 2019, Steve has been able to offer his 135 employees a health plan that prioritizes their wellbeing and maintains the standard of wellness he worked to establish for the company.

When Eliance Health Solutions introduced him to their plan—which included the services of health educator Tanya Jarrett—his search was over. Dutchland has seen increased engagement and participation with their employees due to the close relationship Tanya has formed with the organization. “Tanya and the entire team have created a model that empowers our employees to take ownership of their health and live their best lives,” says Steve.

WHILE WE WERE AWAY
Members of the Fulton team
WHILE WE WERE AWAY T H E F U LT O N S TA F F continued to engage our community with the creation of Fulton HD which featured concerts, behind the scenes interviews, and videos. Our Fulton family enjoyed Joey’s Java Talk, an online series featuring Joey Abramowicz, the Fulton Theatre’s Casting Associate, as he interviewed a variety of onstage and offstage talent. Our Outreach and Education Department partnered with the School District of Lancaster to provide virtual arts curriculum throughout the school year. Our production team worked with Operation Emerald to make masks, face shields, and gowns for our medical community. In July of 2020, the Fulton and WGAL joined forces to produce our first ever live telethon. The Lancaster community banded together to keep the lights of the Fulton burning bright. With outdoor concerts for our retirement communities, social media quizzes and interviews, and all of the partnerships described above, the Fulton team is so happy to have continued creating art for the community we call home.

The Breakout Performance Campaign continued construction during intermission. With the support of the community and the incredible teamwork of Warfel Construction Co., Tippetts/Weaver Architects, and all of the local subcontractors and suppliers, full occupancy of the new building was received in May. We can’t wait to welcome audiences to our new lobby, 27 new restrooms, and expanded gathering spaces. Get a sneak peek on the next several pages!
INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, ACCESSIBILITY (IDEA) The Fulton Theatre continues to be committed to representing our community through the stories we tell on our stage by creating conversations, promoting diversity through our staffing and programming, and making a promise to amplify the voices of people of color in our community and beyond. Featured are the casts, playwrights, and directors of the inaugural Stories of Diversity Playwriting Festival. Open to local and national playwrights, the Festival invited writers to submit new plays or musicals celebrating perspectives from the spectrum of diversity. Three plays were presented to the community in July 2021. For Colored Boyz On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown/When Freedom Aint Enuff—by Bryan-Keyth Wilson, Lev Of Leningrad—by Noah Schoenberg, and L’Hôtel—by Marisol Medina.
To watch a panel discussion with the playwrights, visit FultonHD.org.
FULTON ACADEMY Throughout our intermission, Fulton Academy continued to serve local children with virtual camps and classes. The Academy partnered with School District of Lancaster to create virtual arts content during the school year. The Academy also participated in the Stories of Diversity Playwriting Festival through a partnership with Lancaster City’s J.P. McCaskey High School. In addition, Fulton Theatre Teaching Artists conducted an eight-week residency — collaborating with a diverse group of teens. The festival featured students who created a showcase of their own with original stories, dance, poetry, and music. To watch this Showcase in its entirety visit FultonHD.org.

WITH THE GENEROSITY AND VISION of Ed and Jeannie Arnold, the Fulton has expanded its downtown footprint to the entire city block of West King, North Prince, West Grant, and North Water streets. Multiple spaces have been created to showcase all that Fulton Theatre has to offer, create a home for visiting arts organizations, and offer new and expanded areas for the community to gather.
CULLITON TOWER The Gunterberg Charitable Foundation, helmed by philanthropist Carol Rae Culliton, generously supported the new Culliton Tower which bridges the Brossman Lobby and the former Academy building on the corner of North Prince Street and West Grant Street. The Tower will be the new entrance to the theatre and leads directly into the new lobby space. Architecturally, it is meant to bridge the Victorian and the modern and to compliment the architecture of neighboring buildings.

JAMES HAGELGANS + GALE ZORIAN LOBBY Through the generosity of Jim Hagelgans and Gale Zorian, this modern lobby space serves up to 1,000 patrons. Featuring a brand new bar, 27 restrooms, and a dedicated cabaret space, the new lobby will gather and serve Fulton patrons and guests for years to come.
CASTAGNA HALL Named for Patrick and Linda Castagna, the Hall is a performance, event, and rehearsal space to be used by the Fulton and the community. With two walls of glass and steel, the view of Downtown Lancaster is a sight to behold. The Hall will allow Fulton artists to rehearse in comfort, allow visiting arts organizations a new performance space, and local businesses and groups a new event venue. Address, Lancaster
RODGERS & ASSOCIATES PRODUCERS CIRCLE LOUNGE Rodgers & Associates, led by Rick and Jessica Rodgers, is well-known in Lancaster as a community advocate. With their support, the Producers Circle Lounge has been created. It is a private room dedicated to the Fulton’s Producers Circle Members—those who give annually at a certain level to support the organization. The Lounge provides a place to relax before a production, during intermission, and post show. The majority of furniture used to decorate the space has been seen on the Fulton stage in a variety of Agatha Christie plays.

A primary goal of the expansion project was to increase our ability to gather our community. We are excited to serve our patrons, local nonprofits, industry partners, businesses, and friends with community events, rentals of our new spaces, and, of course, as audience members as we “Return to Live!” —Marc Robin, Executive Artistic Producer
TELL STUDIO THEATRE AND LOBBY The Fulton Theatre Production Team used our intermission to design, create, build, and install a new lobby space on the fourth floor that serves the Tell Studio Theatre. The Tell Studio Theatre produces the Groff Studio Series—a series that offers four productions each season, focusing on challenging subject matter. With this new lobby space, bar, and seating, the fourth floor offers art, an elegant gathering area, and a view of the rooftops.
The mission of the Fulton is to create and produce exceptional theatre that moves the collective soul of our community and honors our national historic landmark.

Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, Sweat is a compelling portrait of the American Rust Belt decay. In Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of life-long friends gather at the local bar, after the factory whistle blows, to share drinks, secrets, and laughs. It is life as usual until rumors of mass lay-offs loom, and two friends find themselves competing for the same management job that just might ensure their employment. For the first time, they find themselves divided by race, station, and survival. As tensions rise, the American Dream has its back against the wall, resulting in a shocking conclusion.

Exploring Lancaster’s Outdoor Gems W H E N I T C O M E S T O the unique features of Lancaster County, our community’s waste management system probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. And yet, how we manage our trash in Lancaster County garners national attention and accolades, both in how we manage the material AND the positive impact of these efforts on the local community.
Yes, its value. Not only does LCSWMA transform waste into useful resources, like renewable energy (i.e., combusting the waste to make electricity), but the organization also leverages the assets they own to do this work.
For example, did you know that on average only 4% of Lancaster County’s municipal solid waste goes to a landfill? Or that the equivalent of 1 in 5 area homes and businesses are powered by trash?
One visible example is their involvement in open space projects. LCSWMA owns over 1,000 acres of land—most of which hosts or is adjacent to its operating facilities. And LCSWMA views these properties as offering an opportunity to improve the livability of the Lancaster community, some of which are highlighted on the following pages.
This is what the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) strives for every day: to protect you and the environment, while transforming waste into a resource that improves the livability of our community.
This philosophy is about seeing the “hidden gem” in unexpected places. And the following pages share some more of Lancaster’s hidden gems. We hope this adds another layer of appreciation to this wonderful place many of us call home.
How is this possible? Well, LCSWMA takes a different perspective on the value of waste.
The Northwest Lancaster County River Trail I N C O L L A B O R AT I O N W I T H other community partners, LCSWMA helped to construct and fund the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail, a multi-use, public recreation trail that is approximately 14 miles long and follows the route of the historic Pennsylvania Mainline Canal. Because some of the original towpath remains along the corridor, the trail allows visitors to interpret the industrial archaeological remains like abandoned canal locks, iron furnaces at Chickies Rock, and the old quarry operation at Billmeyer. The trail also connects the historic river towns and villages of Columbia, Marietta, Bainbridge, and Falmouth, and is ideal for biking, walking, or running. Find directions and access points for the trail at nwrt.info. 90

The Farmingdale Trail O W N E D B Y L C S W M A , the Farmingdale Trail is a multi-use trail system perfect for walking, running, dog walking, and exploring. Opened in 2009, this trail has become a local favorite for its ease of access and natural beauty. One of the trails winds through wetlands, which functions as a natural water storage system that provides a home for diverse wildlife and vegetation. Another trail runs along the Little Conestoga Creek through the woods. There is also a grassland trail and dog park for your furry friends to enjoy. Farmingdale Trail also connects to the Little Conestoga Trail at the Crossings. Learn more at lcswma.org.

Features of the dog park include a small and large dog area, both with splash pads, a doxi tunnel on the small dog side, and a tennis ball tree that launches tennis balls on the large dog side. The Park is free to enter from sunrise to sunset.
Lancaster County Central Park T H E L A R G E S T PA R K in the county, Lancaster County Central Park spans 544 acres on the southern edge of Lancaster City. Whatever your favorite outdoor activity may be, you can find and enjoy them in Central Park—including a county swimming pool, a skate park, six pavilions, garden rental plots, hiking/biking/horseback riding trails, camping sites, an Environmental Center, Shuts Environmental Library, and the Garden of Five Senses. 92
1299 Harrisburg Pike
About the Garden: As implied by its name, the Garden of Five Senses is designed to stimulate all your senses. From the bursting color in the spring and summer blooms to the mystery scents along the garden’s path to the rippling sounds of water, meandering in the garden is sure to delight you. Signs along the walkway explain how our senses work and are also written in Braille.
Keys for the City K E Y S F O R T H E C I T Y is an initiative developed by Music For Everyone’s founder John Gerdy and MFE board members as a way to bring the community together through music. An art project designed to interrupt the noise of everyday life and grab people’s attention, music is sporadically and spontaneously played on these beautifully painted street pianos. In partnership with LCSWMA, local businesses, local artists, and musicians—the pianos are gutted, pieced together, and “upcycled” to give them new life.

What exactly is public art? According to the Association of Public Art, it expresses community values, enhances the environment, transforms a landscape, heightens awareness, or questions assumptions. Placed in public sites, this art is there for everyone, a form of collective community expression. Public art is a reflection of how we see the world—the artist’s response to our time and place combined with our own sense of who we are. Lancaster City Public Art projects create pathways for meaningful conversation, evoke emotions, tell the story of our culture and our identities, create a sense of belonging, and attract interest and enhance pride in Lancaster City. All of these things lead to stronger neighborhoods and increased quality of life. Travel around the city to find some of your favorites or go to lancasterpublicart.com.

LG Health investment in the Lead-Free Families program
Average number of children in Pennsylvania poisoned by lead every year
Number of Lancaster County homes LG Health plans to remediate over 10 years
THRE E-YE AR- OLD LE VI M ILLE R R AC E S around his grandma’s house, proudly hoisting his Black Panther action figure above his head as he zips from the living room to the dining room and kitchen, and then back around for another lap before diving into his toy box to find Captain America. Kelly Key can’t contain her smile as she chases after her superhero-loving son and wraps him in her arms with a big bear hug—prompting laughs from Levi’s grandparents, Mary and Skip Hogentogler. As the sun beams through the 92-yearold brick duplex Columbia home on a sweltering July day, it’s not the summer heat that fills the room with warmth, but the love of family. And it’s that love that prompted the Hogentoglers to sign up for Lead-Free Families, the new program recently launched by Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health to identify and remediate lead hazards in Lancaster County homes. Lead exposure and poisoning is a significant health issue among children in Lancaster County, with blood lead levels here among the highest in the state. “I was appalled when they tested Levi’s room and they found lead in the paint chips in the windows,” Mary says. “We never even thought about lead in the house when we bought it.” Mary and Skip bought the home together seven years ago, shortly after the childhood sweethearts and Columbia High School Class of 1982 graduates reunited and married. Kelly and Levi moved in a few months ago, making the removal of the lead in the house more than just important. It’s now necessary to protect Levi. It’s kids like Levi who LG Health wants to protect. Lead is present in most homes
built before 1978. The Hogentoglers’ house was built around 1930, nearly a half-century before federal standards required lead-free materials to be used in building construction. It’s estimated that some 91,000 homes in the county have lead-based paint. About 45 percent of households in the county have a child under the age of six or a pregnant woman residing, posing health risks to moms-to-be and children. Lead poisoning can lead to permanent health problems, developmental delays, learning and behavior problems, hearing and speech problems, lower IQ, and an increased risk of criminal behavior. By contrast, removing lead from homes can result in improved academic outcomes, lower education costs, better lifetime earning potential, and reduced risk of criminal behavior. That’s why Lead-Free Families will identify and remediate lead hazards in at least 2,800 Lancaster County homes over the next 10 years, while also providing community education and temporary housing and support services for families during remediation. “We’re committed to making Lancaster County the healthiest place to live, work and play,” says LG Health CEO John J. Herman. “Lead-Free Families is a historic $50 million investment by our health system, because we recognize that healthcare goes far beyond the walls of our hospital and doctor’s offices. Where we live and how we live matters to our health. We want to help make home healthy for Lancaster County kids and families.”
his superhero action figures. A smile comes over her. “It’s such a relief that we’re getting the lead removed from our house. I’m just really grateful to LG Health for what they’re doing,” Mary says. “It shows that they really are caring for us and caring for our community.” To apply for the Lead-Free Families program, or for more information, visit LeadFreeFamilies.org.
Partnering to Get the Lead Out Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health’s Lead-Free Families program is a countywide initiative that also works collaboratively with the City of Lancaster and its Lead-Safe Lancaster initiative. The two programs work together on health education and the promotion of healthy housing in Lancaster. Partnerships such as this and the Lancaster County Lead Coalition, of which LG Health is a founding member, are aimed at fostering a safer and healthier Lancaster City and County.
Lead-Free Families is the first comprehensive lead-free homes initiative in the U.S. to be 100 percent funded and led by a health system. That fact is not lost on Mary, whose eyes lock on little Levi as he plays with 717.544.LEAD (5323)

MAKERS OF TOMORROW
THADDEUS STEVENS COLLEGE OF T E C H N O L O G Y has a rich history of developing makers. Since 1905, we’ve helped generations of students and communities flourish through the trades. We have cultivated masons, carpenters, and plumbers who went out and built Lancaster and its surrounding areas. Our students made bridges, farms, and cities. And we haven’t stopped creating. Since then, we’ve become engineers, technicians, leaders; makers. The world has changed since 1905, so have we.

R I C H I N I T S T R A D I T I O N of developing students into community leaders for the past 90+ years, Lancaster Catholic High School has spent the summer looking to the future. After almost five years of planning and fundraising, by partnering with MAROTTA/MAIN Architects and Warfel Construction, imagination and 3D renderings have become a reality for future Crusaders in the form of the new STEM Innovation Center, which is set to welcome LCHS students when they return to school this September. This is just the first phase of the multimillion dollar renovations planned for the future of the school, as Lancaster Catholic High School gears up for the next five generations of Crusaders to thrive with 21st Century learning tools and environments. The STEM Innovation Center is the first major campus renovation to LCHS since 1964, but next year, plans call for a state-of-the-art Fine & Performing Arts Center, Student Commons, and much more. Lancaster Catholic High School is proud to partner with MAROTTA/MAIN Architects and Warfel Construction because their design and construction expertise is helping to bring LCHS’ mission, vision, and goals to life.

Back to (living) Life M A R Y J O T U R N E D 4 8 the day she had an anterior total hip replacement. Apprehensive, she arrived in the morning and was taken into the operating room at 7:30am. By 11:45am she was ready for discharge and on her way home, walking to the car with the help of a walker. After years of pain and worry about an impending surgery, Mary Jo was amazed that she didn’t even need a wheelchair as she left her procedure at OAL. And prior to discharge she was able to walk, go up and down a step, and have a snack. And two weeks later? Mary Jo didn’t even use a cane to walk into her post-op visit.
ORTHOPE DIC A SSOCIATES OF L ANC A STE R is proud to be the first in the region to offer outpatient joint replacement surgery. Traditionally performed as inpatient procedures, total hip and knee replacements can now be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to go home just hours after surgery. If you are active and in good health, with no major medical conditions, you may be a candidate.
