SPRING MARKET FAIRE
In 1981, the York Branch held its first Spring Market Faire. Affectionately known as the Kitchen Tour, this event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for scholarships since its inception. In each of 5 houses on the tour, a local chef demonstrates a recipe to guests who have purchased tickets in advance. Guests are offered a small taste of the dish and the recipe. Also, in each house, a female-owned or -managed business displays items for browsing.
YOUNG WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE – MARTHA FLEISCHER, CHAIR
The York Branch supports the Young Women’s Leadership Conference held at York College since it began in 2005. We are one of the community sponsors for this one day event, which is provided annually for around 1200 seventh-grade school girls from York County. This is a vital self-esteem and confidence building program for our younge women during an important transitional time in their lives.
