HOME MEANS A LOT TO ME. There is something extra special about this time of year that invites us to reminisce about past traditions, create new ones, and connect with community. In the following pages, we are celebrating the shining stars who are making our City a magical place to not only visit but to call home. Written In The Stars is the theme for this Giving & Gifting issue, a concept that is reflected in the celestial elements and sparkling lights shimmering in the designs to follow. Explore our curated Gifting Guide and shop at unique stores enriching the local economy, then peruse our Giving Guide to discover a transformative cause that speaks to you. Meet those who reach for the stars and those who are shining their light on others to make a powerful, positive impact. I always enjoy taking time to observe the candles shimmering from the windows of homes in Old Town, the towering Christmas tree sparkling at the center of Penn Square, the lights twinkling to a steady rhythm on
Downtown restaurant rooftops, and the welcoming sounds of church bells. I am tremendously grateful to see so many businesses, organizations, and individuals working together to help this City truly shineâ€”and to make it really feel like we are all coming home. Letâ€™s celebrate under the stars. DEBORAH BRANDT & THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM

Noelle Turco & John Meeder
Fresh Face: The Imperial THE NEWEST hotel in Lancaster combines old-world charm, artful decor, and locally sourced food served in a comfortable, unique, and luxurious environment. The Imperial, opening at The Hotel Lancaster later this month, is an important part of the culmination of a five-year project by real estate developer John Meeder and his partner Sam Wilsker. The restaurant’s executive chef, Richard Norton, comes from the luxury resort and restaurant Caldera House in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. His rotating menu reflects his Central PA roots and classic American favorites combined with global influences from around the world.
The bar has a nostalgic, elegant allure and features outdoor seating on Queen Street. John and Sam envision The Imperial restaurant to be a gathering place where neighbors and hotel guests can come casually for breakfast, but also enjoy a cocktail at the bar after an event in their finest evening attire. Although many locals remember the original Brunswick hotel that was raised in the late 1960s, in the 1800s the hotel located on this site was named The Imperial Hotel. While it is unlikely that George Washington slept there, Abraham Lincoln gave a speech from the second story balcony on Chestnut Street in the early 1860s. Noelle Turco, local artist and owner of
Red House Design Company, decorated The Imperial’s interior with eclectic, historic flare. “There isn’t a bad seat in the house,” offers Noelle. “Everywhere you sit in the restaurant you will get a taste of history and art to accompany your meal”. The Hotel Lancaster, soon to be Holiday Inn Downtown Lancaster, will also include two gorgeous ballrooms that can accommodate large or small weddings, company parties, and more. The Imperial Grande and The Imperial Blue ballrooms will open in spring of 2019 at about the same time the newly renovated rooms will fly under The Holiday Inn flag. The Ballrooms are currently taking bookings.

STONE INDEPENDENT WA N T S T O C H A N G E T H E I R S T U D E N T S ’ R E L AT I O N S H I P S T O T H E I R WO R K . You won’t see “worksheets” at Stone School, and you won’t see “busy work”. What you will see is a community of students who are asked complex, cross-disciplinary questions; who are given real-world tools to solve them; who use the design-thinking process to ideate, prototype, revise, and exhibit what they’ve learned. That means that Stone gets pretty
loud pretty quickly. Their students project-plan, work in collaborative teams, and design, build, and present “solutions”. Sometimes those solutions are a difficult math problem presented on a whiteboard; other times they are a policy brief submitted to a local politician. Sometimes they are rockets fired across the parking lot or a repaired car engine; other times they are a 15-foot trebuchet or a small business pitch in front of local “sharks”. They don’t measure “seat-time” at Stone school—they measure deep
learning. Deep learning happens when students are challenged to do meaningful work, when they are challenged to solve complex problems, and when they are positioned to be true architects of their work. “We’re building a different kind of school here at Stone and we’d love to tell you more about it. For more information and to schedule your private tour, email admissions@ stoneindependent.org.” —Mike Simpson, Head of School

Lauren Garrett & Nicole Calta
Fresh Face: THE CHARLEE THE CHARLEE offers a big city experience in a relaxed modern salon in Downtown Lancaster. The technicians are masters of their craft with specialized areas of expertise, and deliver consistent results and personalized service in a welcoming atmosphere. “We want to offer individualized attention for each client,” says Nicole Calta, Founder and Creative Director. “We also want to encourage more than style—we educate every client on how to maintain their look at home.” THE CHARLEE is located in a newly renovated space. With the help of various local business, Nicole’s vision became a reality and gave new life to the once condemned building.
Nicole, who focuses on women’s and men’s cuts, graduated from the Carsten Institute of Cosmetology in New York City before beginning her career at Frederic Fekkai’s Fifth Avenue flagship salon. After eight years in Manhattan, she decided to bring her experience back to her hometown of Lancaster. Lauren Garrett, Color Director, joined THE CHARLEE team to add her expertise into the mix. Lauren graduated from Jean Madeline Aveda Institute in Philadelphia and worked at Studio CL in Rittenhouse Square for a decade before moving to Lancaster. “We noticed a common problem in the industry—clients were rarely satisfied with the results of both color and cut services completed by one technician,”
says Lauren. “The team at THE CHARLEE offers specialized services, so a client can come to me for color and Nicole for a cut.” “Together we want to use our foundation of experience and passion to help clients achieve the results they love,” says Nicole. “We thoroughly consult with our clients to ensure the cut, color, and style they leave with works for their lifestyle.” THE CHARLEE is excited to bring this concept to Lancaster and looking forward to expanding their team. Learn more about THE CHARLEE and make an appointment for the personalized salon experience you deserve at thecharleesalon.com.

AUTHENTIC Leading the way through innovation and example.
Authentic: Steph Fleetman & Christine Miller BEST FRIENDS STEPH AND CHRISTINE have been working and creating together since they met in college. As makers and vendors with their upcycled goods business, [re]chic, the two noticed a serious need for consistency to combat the nomadic trail of craft shows and flea markets. They envisioned a makers market that vendors and customers could depend on. Creatively Lancaster Maker’s Market was born from their vision to have a consistent, quality, curated, monthly makers market in Lancaster. Through Creatively Lancaster, Christine and
Steph are providing a personal and connection-driven experience for both makers and shoppers. “We are passionate about our vendor community and having awesome makers with whom we can interact. We are more than a place to shop or buy a great gift; we’re a place to come and be inspired.” Although, as creatives themselves, they knew there was a need for what they had to offer, Christine and Steph were still blown away by the response. The entrepreneurial spirit in Lancaster is strong, and there are so many makers, artists, and creatives who have beautiful,
meaningful, functional work to showcase in the community, that curating the market is the hardest part. The best part, they say, is seeing how this outlet has forged connections between creators and the community, and seeing some of their vendors empowered to take their dream business to the next level. Christine and Steph are thrilled see the connections, success, and inspiration that results from elevating the work of local creatives; they are proud of the friendships that have been forged and to have been linchpins in the success of creatives in Lancaster.

Fresh Face: Decades PICTURE THIS: It’s Friday night, you’re getting together with friends, and trying to decide where in Lancaster you want to go. Although there’s no shortage of great restaurants to sift through, tonight, you want more than to sit down for a great meal and distinctive cocktail—you also want to do something. Your most cultured friend pipes up that he read in Fig Lancaster about a new place called Decades that might fit the bill, and you’re on your way. As you roll up North Queen Street to the historic Stahr Armory building, you’re trying to imagine how a 90-yearold gymnasium could hold the key to a memorable night in Lancaster for
you and your friends. You enter the building and you’re blown away by the nostalgia and the attention to detail. Tufted leather couches and shimmering chandeliers create a decadent and inviting grown-up space for mingling and connecting. The concierge greets your party and helps you sift through your options for how you want to start your evening. There’s a full restaurant with a chef-driven menu peppered with new and exciting grown-up takes on your favorite childhood dishes. There are 24 craft beers on tap, a sommelierselected wine list, and a full selection of craft cocktails that ensures no one leaves thirsty. Your eyes widen as you
take in the six-lane boutique bowling alley, skee ball, and around 25 of your favorite retro games from Donkey Kong and Dr. Mario, to Cruis’n USA and NBA Jam. This is it. The place you’ve been waiting for. Decades is what happens when the kids from Stranger Things grow up and decide they need a cool place to hang out as grownups. Actually it’s what happens when a group of friends with high standards, an affinity for pop culture, and a passion for Lancaster City, put their ideas and talents together to fill a need and give us all one more reason to be proud of and have fun in our City on the rise.

Women of Lancaster
The City of Lancaster is growing and changing like never before. We believe that small business will always be the backbone of our economy and more than ever before, women are leading the way. All this year, we featured, in partnership with our friends at BSSF, just a few of these dedicated female entrepreneurs.
When Charissa Gift, Beth Schwartz, and Ina Bunnell showed up to an emergency shelter at the Lancaster YWCA one Wednesday evening in 2014, they did not realize it would be the beginning of a social enterprise that would eventually make more than 3,000 pieces of jewelry, helping dozens of women facing homelessness and other barriers transition into the workforce. That night at the emergency shelter turned into a Wednesday evening community program at Water Street Mission. Charissa, Beth, Ina, and their friends Jocelyn Engle, Angel Ludwig, and Laura Rothacker began showing up weekly at Water Street with a few simple crafts, babysitters, and open hearts. They quickly realized how that one hour was the only time in the entire week the women had to themselves, to laugh and
let their worries go. They also noticed that there was something about the process of creating that allowed women to share their stories and connect authentically. Today, those seven women are now the founding members of the nonprofit Revolution, which provides transitional employment to women in the community facing homelessness and other barriers, training them on how to make beautiful jewelry and paying per piece of jewelry made. “I may be homeless, but that is not who I am.” Originally spoken by Dottie, a Revolution maker, these words hang on the wall of the Revolution workshop
110 NORTH LIME STREET REVOLUTIONL ANCASTER.COM
today. For the founders of Revolution, who have been coming together every Wednesday for the past four years, these words are deeply meaningful. They are motivated by the shared humanity among women that they witness in the workshop. “No matter where we live or what we face, we can show up for each other,” says Charissa. And that’s exactly what they will continue to do.

They encourage students to follow their passions and engage with the community through volunteer opportunities. Meet two students exemplifying the idea of giving back. A L E X A S TA D E L A senior at LCDS, Alexa has been volunteering at the school's Horizons program, which includes swimming instruction, for the past three years.
“It is so satisfying to see these students that you have a strong bond with grow up and share their stories of what is going on in their lives. The connection we have with the children is so important because it helps them to grow emotionally as well. Many have never entered the water and are very fearful of this new and scary experience. The kids rely on me to help and encourage them. Giving back to the Horizons community is not only an opportunity but a privilege.”

LO U I S E B LO O M A sophomore, Louise enjoys helping with Horizons at LCDS as well. “Working with the Horizons program has helped me develop into a leader, has given me a sense of community outside of Country Day’s walls, and has empowered me to follow a career in teaching. Also, at Lancaster Country Day I have been able to become more independent and involved with helping others inside the school.”

listening to adults talk to each other in the gym, that I learned how to communicate effectively and professionally.”

GIVING BACK Making a difference in the lives of others.
Giving Back: Kevin Ressler AT MEALS ON WHEELS OF LANCASTER, Kevin oversees an operation that delivers more than 400 freshly prepared, nutritional meals a day to community members who battle food insecurity. Since he joined the organization in 2014, Kevin has been working tirelessly to bridge the generational gap and decrease the stigma of people who are food reliant. He’s also connecting members of the community in so many ways. “If we’re just the pizza delivery guy, then we are failing in our mission,” says Kevin. Kevin and the team of nine employees at Lancaster Meals on Wheels have been finding new ways to engage volunteers and partner organizations to connect,
help, and give. The Meals on Wheels team includes more than 70 daily volunteers. Together, they delivered more than 160,000 meals in 2017, and are on track for more than 175,000 meals in 2018. Last year, they worked with more than 500 volunteers. Many volunteers do much more than meal delivery, like deep cleaning homes, turning beds, and yard work. They’re building relationships and helping meal recipients live healthier, happier lives.
always about feeding people at the end of their lives,” says Kevin. “Often our work is about giving people back their health, whether a long-term malady or short-term surgical recovery.”
When Kevin tells the story of a recipient, it feels as familiar as if they were old friends. Mr. Johnson received a renal diet meal from Meals on Wheels for eight years as he underwent dialysis. When he finally got his kidney transplant, Mr. Johnson no longer relied on Meals on Wheels. “It’s not

Landmarks C AT H E R I N E H A L D E M A N L O N G M A N S I O N Christmas comes but once a year. And for Catherine Haldeman Long, 1890 was a good year! Her father, Henry G. Long, president judge of the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas from 1851 to 1871, saw to it that his only child would be taken care of, even beyond his death in 1889. His estate plan called for the construction of an exquisite threestory, all cut-stone masonry mansion to be built at the southeast corner of North Duke and East Orange Streets. The architectural style selected was Chateauesque, inspired by the French Renaissance. Attainable by only the upper reaches of Lancaster’s society, Chateauesque was characterized by castle-like features including towers, conical roofs, tall chimneys, roof cresting, carvings, gargoyles, and grotesques. The complexities were so numerous that only the most talented architects would undertake the task of designing this style. Whether or not Catherine participated in the design decisions or had any influence on the outcome is unknown. Equally unfortunate, records don’t identity the architect or the general contractor responsible for this, one of Lancaster’s finest iconic structures. Catherine remained in the residence until her death around 1900. In 1912, the Hamilton Club purchased the mansion to accommodate the needs of its expanding membership. Today, the exterior still exudes its grand character while the rich interior detailing, including ornate millwork and glazed handmade floor tiles, retains the original personality of an amazing gift to Catherine Haldeman Long and our City!

“Can We Call It Sally’s Garden?”
Lancaster City Heroes Willow Valley Communities celebrates those making Lancaster a better community.
The 550 students who attend Lancaster’s Lafayette Elementary School gather outside every morning as a school family before beginning their day. And they look at that wall. That wall, with its cracks, holes, dents, and divots. That wall, showing graffiti of things no child should ever see, was what the Lafayette Elementary School family looked at each morning as they lined up together. Volunteer tutor Sally Jarvis also noticed that wall and said the children deserved better. She led the way and three years later $40,000 was raised—sometimes pennies at a time—for that wall to be repaired, primed, and ready to accept the first beautiful mural created
by the students. That was in 2015 and each year after, teacher Wes Blymire’s Advanced Art class of 9 and 10 year olds has taken over and has worked together to create another vibrant panel to add to the mural on that wall. In 2017, Sally Jarvis passed away, but her enduring love for Lancaster city was steadfast on the hearts of the children of Lafayette. They were inspired to continue her vision for the future generations of Lancaster City school students who would attend their school. Unselfishly, graciously, and heroically, the children in Mr. Blymire’s Advanced Art class chose to paint a mural of a beautiful flower garden on that wall. This is what they wanted for future Lancaster City students to reflect upon as they, too, started their day by lining up outside Lafayette Elementary School. These students—heroes— decided to call it Sally’s Garden.

DR. KRISTINE DZIURZYNSKI has been a practicing Neurosurgeon at Lancaster NeuroScience & Spine Associates since 2013. In addition to providing surgical treatment for brain tumors, she recognized the importance of a supportive community for people with this disease. Earlier this year she started a brain tumor support group at the Lancaster office. “Getting a brain tumor diagnosis can be devastating, especially if it’s cancer,” says Dr. Dziurzynski. “It can be overwhelming; at the doctor’s office, at home with your family, out with your friends. Nobody
The support group meets once a month, open to anyone with any type of brain tumor. It’s a place where patients, caregivers, family, and friends can come together and offer encouragement, discuss challenges, exchange advice, and offer support. “This group helps with information sharing and lessens the intensity of feeling like people are dealing with this on their own,” says Dr. Dziurzynski. “I want to emphasize that all are welcome, not just patients of Lancaster NeuroScience.” Attendees can write down questions and bring them, engage with accurate
and professional resources, and discuss new research. “We strive to help everyone have a better understanding of the disease,” says Dr. Dziurzynski. “Brain tumors can be especially aggressive and can affect people in a way that makes it difficult to function. It is a goal of ours to be a provider of information and support.” Dr. Dziurzynski is thankful to be around colleagues that support her endeavor to offer this service to the community. “If you have a brain tumor, know someone who does, or have been affected in some way by this disease, you are welcome to reach out about this support group,” says Dr. Dziurzynski, “We are here to help.”
