TOP LEFT- No matter the weather, Austin is dedicated to helping customers at Leg Up Farmer’s Market. Leg Up Farmer's Market has been an awesome partner, providing many work experiences to students in The Arc of York County's Penn Employment Services program throughout the years. They appreciate the students’ hard work.

TOP RIGHT- The Arc of York County’s After School Options Program in York welcomed Badger, a Pyrenees-mix, and his friend Iris this month. Badger gave lots of puppy kisses, took treats from our hands, and enjoyed getting his picture taken. He even danced with Iris!

MIDDLE- The Arc of York County awarded its Open Door Award to Susan Newcomer. The Open Door Award is given annually to outstanding individuals or organizations that have worked to create new opportunities for support and community inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities.
Thank you, Susan, for all you have done and continue to do for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in south central PA!!
