The Optimist Club is looking for new members. The “nationally recognized service organization that focuses on outreach throughout our school, community, country, and even around the globe,” accepts prospective members year-round, said club president Taylor Davis.
The Central senior directs any interested student to see Ms. Goodrich or Miss Grove, or stop by one of the club’s meetings on Wednesdays in room 529. “Look out for our Pura Vida Bracelets for sale this winter,” said Davis.
“CYHS Mini-THON is made up of an incredible group of students who are passionate about conquering childhood cancer,” said third-year Mini-THON Officer Ellie McNally.
“Our members work year-round planning fundraisers and hosting events in hopes to raise money for Four Diamonds, an organization that ensures no pediatric cancer patient at the Penn State Children’s Hospital will see a bill for their treatment,” she said.
“As a club, we plan and execute Central’s Mini-THON, which occurs annually in March. Mini-THON is a celebration of survival, a tribute to the lives of loved ones and a 12-hour marathon of fun, friendship and fundraising as we physically take a stand to conquer childhood cancer,” said McNally.
As for upcoming events, Mini-THON will be hosting a “Texas Roadhouse Fundraiser Night,” on Sept. 25. All proceeds will go straight to the club and subsequently to Four Diamonds.
The large group of students that make up Aevidum work to spread positive messages, make others feel welcome and host events that make Central York a district in which everyone can feel acknowledged and cared for.
“Aevidum aims to raise awareness of mental health disorders and to make everyone feel like school is a safe and accepting place,” said Aevidum president Heidi Nauss.
A future event for the organization is Get Real, a full day occasion that connects the freshmen with one another. The purpose is to eliminate toxic words and actions and to encourage positive change in the school environment.
