PHOTO OF THE WEEK

The Conestoga Valley and Manheim Township junior high track and field programs teamed up to raise money for Off the Streets. The two teams raised $969.69 (!) and this morning, representatives from the foundation stopped by GGHMS to accept the donations. As you can see in the above photo, two of our CV students donned Manheim Township gear in honor of their MT counterparts who could not be in attendance.

CVCCS SUMMER LUNCH CLUB

CVCCS's annual Summer Lunch Club is back again this summer and now it's back to "normal," meaning no more of the grab n' go style from the past two years of COVID.

In addition to meals, each site will offer fun and interactive activities such as games, Bible stories, songs, crafts, etc. Think of it as a mini vacation bible school environment!

Below are the four Summer Lunch Club sites; parents may also receive food, but children 18 and younger will be served first:

  • Flory Park: 416 Dohner Dr., Lancaster, PA 17602
  • Country Club Apartments: 323 Aaron Ln., Lancaster, PA 176101
  • West Earl Community Park: 189 S. State St., Leola, PA 17540
  • Breakout Ministries: 2400 Anita Ct., Leola, PA 17540
