86th Annual Meeting

Posted on 22 March 2017 by ca

This past Sunday, our community center gym was alive with chatter and excitement in anticipation of the Crispus Attucks 86th Annual Meeting. Over 100 people from around the area filled the room to hear what we’ve been up to this past year.

Center for Employment & Training Director Rev. Mike Jefferson emcee’d the afternoon and introduced Board of Directors Vice President Darrien Davenport to give the official welcome. Embracing the theme of “Celebrating Our Past, Connecting to our Future,” Jeffrey Kirkland, Crispus Attucks Association friend and history buff, laid out 85 years of our organization’s rich history and deep roots in York.

With an introduction centered around the theme of “bridging the gap” by Judge John Uhler, three local police department heads were each recognized with the Heart of Change Community Service Award for their roles in helping bridge the gap between police and minority communities in York. Springettsbury Township Police Chief Daniel Stump expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the award and his commitment to working with organizations like Crispus Attucks:

“If you have pure motives and a good heart, people will surround you because we all have the hope of having a better community,” Stump said.

Next, Crispus Attucks staff celebrating milestone years of service, ranging from five to 25 years, were recognized for their achievements. Much to her surprise, Deb Kopecki, CA’s HR Director the past 43 years, was also recognized for her many contributions and friendship, an emotional moment for all. Finally, to show our appreciation for some of our dedicated volunteers, we recognized ten more people and groups, including the Country Club of York and Women Living United, for all of their hard work.

We’re certainly grateful for and rely on the support of our community. To another year!

Boundary Avenue Development 

Boundary Avenue serves as a symbolic southern gateway into York City.  Over the past decade and a half, the Crispus Attucks Community Development Department has worked to develop this area of the city to make it more attractive to professionals and residents.  In building new commercial properties and renovating old ones, Crispus Attucks has addressed the needs of city residents while providing office space for workers from throughout York County.  Thanks to this development, nearly 400 people are employed in Crispus Attucks owned properties.

Revitalizing Southeast York

Vista Volunteer Matt Bechtel presents findings from 2009 Neighborhood Survey.

VISTA Volunteer Matt Bechtel presents findings from 2009 Neighborhood Survey, an effort of the Community Development program sponsored by the Wachovia Regional Foundation.

The Crispus Attucks Community Development program is committed to the revitalization of southeast York City as a place to live, work and play. Through collaborative site design, property acquisition, fundraising, and site restoration, the program has developed a southern gateway to the city center at Boundary Avenue. The latest projects have also included sustainability features like geothermal heating and cooling in the new Early Learning Center and LEED Green building certification of the Greenway Tech Centre. 

Long term neighborhood stability does not rest solely on home ownership. Neighborhoods are more than simply a collection of houses – they are places where people live.  At their best, neighborhoods meet most of the daily needs of their residents. 

Southeast Cares Neighborhood Steering Committee 

Members of Southeast Cares, the Neighborhood Steering Committee for Southeast York, work to improve the neighborhood. They meet on the second Thursday of each month.  Please contact Danyielle Newman at South George Street Community Resource Center, phone number 843-0238, if you have interest in joining the committee.
