SPRING MARKET FAIRE TOUR OF KITCHENS
The York Branch conducts its Spring Market Faire Tour of Kitchens scholarship fundraiser every 2 years, usually the fourth Monday in April, during the day. In each of 5 houses on the tour, a local chef demonstrates a recipe or technique to guests who have purchased tickets in advance. Guests are offered a small taste of the dish prepared. Also in each house, a female-owned or -managed business displays items for browsing.
The 2019 event saw a profit of $14,174, all of which goes to local scholarships and AAUW Funds.
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.
