YWCA Lancaster Honors Community Leaders at Annual Meeting

Lancaster, PA – YWCA Lancaster hosted its Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 5 to celebrate the inspirational work of our volunteers and community leaders who help to make the YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empower women a reality here in Lancaster.


YWCA Lancaster was happy to honor Carol Rae Culliton as the Citizen of the Year due to her incredible support of providing necessary services to her neighbors in Lancaster.


This recognition is a tribute to her generous support of the YWCA’s Annual Campaign, her leadership with the STEM Sisters program at the North Museum, and her family’s distribution of food and toys to hundreds of Lancaster residents – including the parents and children served through the YWCA’s childcare and residence programs.


Additional community partners that were honored at the Annual Meeting included Millersville University accepting the Corporate Citizen of the Year Award, Meredith Calien receiving the Racial Justice Award, Susan Peipher earning the President’s Award, and Heather Colosi, Anne Dellosso, Tammie Fitzpatrick, Brian and Sarah LaBorde, Debra Saporetti, and Thomas Zug all being honored with a Yellow Rose Award.
