Board & Trustee Reunion1009555_10151878560592583_2051400842_o
On May 21, 2014, YWCA Lancaster will welcome back its former members of the Board of Directors and Trustees to renew old acquaintances and to celebrate the contributions of CEO Maureen Powers. We encourage our former Board members and Trustees to come with photographs, journals, news clippings and anything that captures their time serving the YWCA Lancaster. A photographer will be on hand to take “class” photos of the former Board and Trustees and those photos will grace the walls of the YW. For more information, please contact Angela M. Trout at 717-393-1735, ext. 224 or at atrout@ywcalancaster.org.

Presented by YWCA Lancaster, learn about misconceptions of race, how human variation has shaped our culture and what the future holds for our society.  “Race: Are We so Different?” is a project by the American Anthropological Association.
