AT F I G I N D U S T R I E S , one of the most important questions we answer in our studio is why. By asking this, we begin to understand more, discover different perspectives, and forge meaningful relationships that help develop a better solution to every challenge we face. As always, we’re looking for purpose behind everything we do. Winter brings us many opportunities to ask and answer why. The holidays are full of ways to find purpose and serve others. When it comes to selecting the perfect gift for a loved one, find a gift that is unique and is also supporting a local entrepreneur and our local economy. Why did my son buy me gloves from Festoon last year? Because one evening he saw me try and warm my hands in my coat and he remembered. He went to Kathy, told her what he wanted and why. These aren’t just any normal gloves; they’re a reminder that my son thinks of me. They don’t just warm my hands. They warm my heart. In Lancaster, we have a multitude of opportunitites to serve others though our local non-profit organizations who work tirelessly to make our community better.
This time of year reminds us that we’re all in this together and we need one another. A heart of service, above all else, is paramount. See our Giving Back Guide in this issue for just a few causes we care about. For whatever reason you give this season, start to ask yourself why. It may change your perspective. It may change the way you give of yourself and ultimately, your relationships with others may change in the process. Who knows, it may just cause someone to put on their gloves a little slower, and with a smile. WA R M LY, D E B O R A H B R A N D T & THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM
If you have a strong purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there.” —Roy T. Bennett

Connecting Passion and Learning.
PROJ EC T- B A S ED LE A R N IN G AT TH E S TO N E SCH OO L AT T H E S T O N E S C H O O L , everything begins with a question. A question like the one Stone Independent Director of Greening Elyse Jurgen asked her Environmental Science students in September: “How can we mitigate the environmental impact 43 North Lime Street has on Lancaster City?” That’s when the work began. Hours spent brainstorming on whiteboards and designing systems theory maps. Then deep inquiry—into water quality in Lancaster City, city architecture and infrastructure, into local urban greening projects, into native species and native wildlife. Plus real world research—trips to local water treatment
facilities, a morning at City Hall spent looking at greenhouse gas inventories, an afternoon applying the Pythagorean Theorem to the old slate roof to figure out the volume of rainwater runoff. Plus consultations with the Lancaster Conservancy, the Junior League, the City Stormwater department, Lighten Up Lancaster, S.H.A.R.E, and even a Master Naturalist. And then: back to the whiteboard. To prototype solutions, to generate feedback, to re-prototype, to redesign. And only then, with an initial question and hundreds of hours of collective research, do thirteen 9th graders begin to move dirt and lay plumbing for Stone Independent’s first rain garden.

Authentic project-based learning is a lot more than being “hands-on”—projectbased learning is the practice of solving complex, interdisciplinary problems through sustained inquiry, authentic student choice, discipline-specific skill development, prototyping, critiquing, revising, and a whole lot of reflection. It isn’t just jargon—it’s the kind of learning that develops skills students need in college, in the workplace, in the real world. And the most effective kind of project-based learning starts with extraordinary teachers like Elyse Jurgen—teachers who ask big questions, who teach the way they live their lives.
F R E S H FA C E Welcoming new businesses to the City of Lancaster.
Open 7 Days
Fresh Face: Freinschaft Market IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAMPION FORGE CENTER, on the north side of Lancaster city, a new market welcomes Lancaster foodies of all kinds, from the traditionalists to the adventurous. Freinschaft means “family” in Pennsylvania Dutch, and the market boasts an eclectic array of dry goods as well as an abundance of choices in the butcher shop and deli sections of the store. Inspired by the farmers markets where siblings Josephine and Josh Stoltzfus’ parents and grandparents had market stands, Freinschaft offers
customers an authentic blend of quality, locally sourced, Lancaster County staples, custom butchery, and thoughtfully curated specialty foods from all over. As Josephine points out some of her favorites, it’s clear that the owners care about the quality of their food and give a distinct attention to detail in choosing what they carry in the market. She explains that though most of what you’ll see is sourced locally, when it comes to the items that aren’t, you can be sure it’s the best they’ve found from a company that specializes in the product and has a
story that you can feel good about. Built on a heritage of food and family, Freinschaft Market is eager to become a part of your family dinners and gatherings. “We have everything you need to eat well with your family,” Stoltzfus says. With prepared foods, fresh ingredients, and a dedicated butcher on staff, this new market is the perfect stop for the nights you’re in a rush, don’t feel like turning on the stove, or when you want to blow your dinner guests away with something truly extraordinary.

A R M S T R O N G WO R L D I N D U S T R I E S (AW I), and its philanthropic arm, the A R M S T R O N G WO R L D I N D U S T R I E S FO U N DAT I O N , are committed to making a difference in the lives of people by making the spaces where we live, work, learn, heal, and play better. With its innovative ceilings and walls systems, AWI brings better acoustics; better performance; better, more sustainable materials; and better looking and feeling design to our “built environments.” We spend more time than ever indoors so interior finishes play an important role in how we feel when we’re in buildings. In offices, community spaces, hospitals, and transportation and educational facilities, Armstrong ceilings and walls contribute to our well-being by helping to create better buildings and better communities in ways that may surprise you. See what these Armstrong community partners have to say about how Armstrong ceilings and walls made a difference in their spaces—to help keep Lancaster looking up!
“Loud noise can be toxic but the sound of kids laughing and learning brings great joy. Armstrong helped us hear that, with the outstanding sound control we’re getting in our Club spaces with Armstrong ceilings and walls.” karen schloer
Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster
Lancaster’s Looking Up
“It’s appropriate to look up when thinking of Armstrong Ceilings. It enables you to see their beautiful product (with many varieties featured in our new building at 115 East King Street, Lancaster) and it reminds you of their long-standing, visionary support of the Lancaster community. Thank you Armstrong Ceilings for your ongoing commitment to our county.” tom baldrige
Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry
“The 157-year-history of Armstrong is woven into the fabric of Lancaster County history. We’re excited to partner with Armstrong World Industries to preserve and share their corporate archive with the community and the world!” robin sarratt
We have faith in Armstrong products and rely on them to enhance our projects. Clients looking up to a better performing and more creative ceiling is a great thing! maryann marotta and connie king

AUTHENTIC Leading the way through innovation and example.
Authentic: Chip Cargas C H I P C A RG A S I S T H E FO U N D E R, Chairman, and CEO at Cargas Systems, an employee owned business software company with 99 employees that is thrilled to be making the move to Downtown Lancaster! After years of intentional, sustainable growth, the need for a larger and more collaborative space was apparent. After polling their current employees to ensure buy-in and support, Chip and his team had their eyes open for the perfect downtown opportunity and ultimately signed on as the anchor tenant for the exciting and much anticipated project known as 101 North Queen. The space is an ideal location
for Chip and his team whose ultimate purpose can be surmised in a two word statement that packs a powerful punch: “Shared Success”. To Chip and the Cargas team, the downtown move is a win for the Cargas employees, customers, owners, partners, and the Lancaster community. The new location puts Cargas and their current employees in the center of it all, with great retail, restaurants, office, and residential spaces that entice people to Lancaster urban living. Cargas plans to bring more than 100 great jobs to the heart of Lancaster city with their move, with room to grow the team to 220 employees. Always thinking ahead

to the future of the company, and building a diverse and highly qualified work force, Cargas has partnered with local community organizations in events and initiatives that support women in technology fields and STEM education for all children. The 101 North Queen move is just one more way that Cargas hopes to keep moving forward in their mission of shared success. “We are so lucky here in Lancaster; so many people are willing to work together to do whatever it takes to make Lancaster an even more vibrant place!”

United Way of Lancaster County
AT U N I T E D W AY O F L A N C A S T E R C O U N T Y, we fight for all our children to enter kindergarten ready to learn. The years before a child enters school are critical for cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. These early years are a period of rapid change in the brain of a young child and lay the foundation for future success. Yet, only 11% of Lancaster County 3- and 4-year-old children are enrolled in high-quality, publicly funded Pre-K programs. United Way’s Collective Impact Partnerships are revolutionizing the early education systems throughout our county to ensure that all children have an equal chance to lead happy, fulfilling lives. By expanding access to high-quality Pre-K education, and encouraging parents to read to their children daily, we can boost a child’s learning potential and overall academic success.

The Lancaster County Corvette Club is a regular sponsor of Clare House, and especially so during the holiday season when their “Christmas Angels” spend an entire morning shopping for, and wrapping, gifts for each family. “It’s like Santa’s sleigh arrives, and a flurry of holly jolly helpers unload beautifully wrapped gift after gift, piling up around our trees until you can barely see the boughs!” says Eva Dombrowski, Executive Director. This Adopt-A-Family approach helps working moms save during the holiday, and provides gifts for their children (and even a few for themselves) that make the holiday season one of joy, and not stress. When groups like LCCC get together to support Clare House this way, the results are miraculous. Each mom is encouraged to know that there are people rooting for her.
AT F I G , we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and
is passionate about helping its neighbors. For our 2017 Social Mission Partner, we have chosen Clare House, an impactful non-profit whose good work contributes immensely to our thriving, local community.

They understand that their clients are not just fighting hunger, many are fighting social isolation in ways that lead to hunger. But there isn’t a one-size-fits-all description.

The winner of this year’s Pitch is building his life and career around the the principle of giving back while moving forward.
a bridge to reach beyond a welcome and encourage true connection and belonging. He also saw a trend of passionate and talented people from all over the world who seemed to be leaving their dreams in their country of origin, while trying to build a new life and connect with new neighbors here.
Mustafa Nuur came to Lancaster from Somalia three years ago. Here he felt welcome, safe, and therefore empowered to pour into others in the immigrant community. Named the Volunteer of the Year by Church World Services, Mustafa has invested much of his time here in Lancaster connecting with the people around him.
With his education as a web designer, Mustafa says, for starters, “I wanted to be a symbol of what I hoped to achieve,” so he applied his talent to building a website that would bridge the gap between the immigrant community and their new welcoming neighbors.
He noticed that although the city welcomes refugees, there was a need for

opportunity to generate income through their talents, experiences, and expertise. Anyone can go to the website and choose a country they’re interested in learning about or an experience that they would like to have. Then they will be matched with a person from that country who will provide the global experience, right here in Lancaster. As meals are shared and trades are taught, new neighbors will cross the bridge from welcoming, to knowing, supporting, and learning from one another. Like the Bridge Possible Facebook page to find out more about the specific cultural experiences that you can have. You can find Mustafa’s full pitch video at bridgepossible.com.

7 0 % O F W O M E N who participate in a program specifically for women entrepreneurs, think bigger, set higher growth goals, and have increased confidence and momentum to strive for more. This is why everyone working behind the scenes of the Women’s Business Center at ASSETS shows up each day
to help women entrepreneurs achieve more success, more quickly, and with a greater community impact. We believe that a key solution to elevate our community is creating opportunities for women to cultivate innovative ideas, network with existing entrepreneurial leaders, and access the resources necessary to grow.
The programs offered at the Women’s Business Center do just that. They are designed, supported, and executed by women entrepreneurs, for women entrepreneurs; building a legacy of equality and success that will set Lancaster apart and ensure that EVERYONE in our community can thrive.
in their words “The WBC is not only connecting women entrepreneurs with the resources, skills, and networks to create a successful business, but also providing them with the confidence and knowledge to be a leader in their field and community. By building up strong, bold, and innovative women from our own neighborhoods, we are transforming the lives of the entrepreneurs as well as everyone they reach.” – JENN OR ANTES, MARKETING BOOT CAMP CONSULTANT
“Whether the reports are coming out of McKinsey or Harvard Business Review, the recent data is unambiguous and unapologetic: diverse teams have higher net income growth. Non-homogeneous teams are smarter because of their breadth of perspectives on how to win. ASSETS has been strategically ahead of this curve in developing savvy women business owners for a more powerful and equitable Lancaster County.” – K EDREN CROSBY, WOMEN’S BUSINESS ACCELER ATOR COACH AND FOUNDER OF WORK WISDOM
“Going through the ASSETS program helped me become a better entrepreneur. With the program assistance from ASSETS, I am now a small business owner. With my salon, I can help my community by empowering my clients to be more confident and feel comfortable in their own skin.” – YANETH RUBIO, LEARNING CIRCLE GR ADUATE AND BUSINESS OWNER

Fresh Face: Lancaster Maternal Fetal Medicine L A N C A S T E R M AT E R N A L F E TA L M E D I C I N E I S E XC I T E D to offer cutting-edge technology, medical expertise, a heart for serving their patients, and world-class health and family care to the women and families of Lancaster. Previously, women in the midst of high-risk pregnancies had to go to the doctors their obstetrician referred them to. Now, thereâ€™s another option. Dr. Rob Larkin and Dr. Christian Macedonia believe that every woman and family has the right to choose their own doctors, especially when whatâ€™s meant to be a joyous experience becomes stressful. This fundamental belief is what led these two highly accomplished and
published doctors to begin their own Maternal and Fetal Medicine practice here in Lancaster. The team at Lancaster Maternal Fetal Medicine believes in the power of collaboration through advanced technology to achieve the most efficient care and the best possible outcome for mothers and babies. Credentialed by all three Lancaster area hospitals, they can work with obstetricians and patients in any hospital. Lancaster Maternal Fetal Medicine built a team of professionals that is exceptional in their field and operate under the principle of the golden rule, treating patients the way they would wish to be treated under similar circumstances.
Both doctors have had experiences in their own families where a high-risk obstetrician was needed. They bring the empathy and understanding they gained through their own life experiences to their patients. The new practice boasts the best equipment and finest technology available as they house the most advanced ultrasound system in the world. Additionally they are capable of sending ultrasound images to electronic devices which significantly enhances the patient experience by improving communication between providers and the people they serve.

THE NEUROSPINE CENTER The Team Behind the Expertise. Located adjacent to Lancaster NeuroScience & Spine Associates’ (LNSA) main office, The NeuroSpine Center (NSC) is a fully accredited outpatient surgical spine center employing a highly skilled team. An often overlooked, yet vital, component of outpatient care is the role of the nursing and administrative staff who support the Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners. The nursing and surgical team handles all pre, intra, and post-operative care, surgical preparation, patient education,
and much more. Their dedication and skill ensures the patient and their family members are comfortable and wellinformed during their stay. The NSC treats each and every patient like a member of their family, giving very personalized, individual care. Without the dedication to patient care from our surgeons, and nursing and administrative staff, the NSC would not be able to offer the pristine level of care patients expect and deserve.
