Today I am so grateful and excited to start my new role at ATOMIC. The past four years have been an eye-opening and incredible dive into the live entertainment industry. I've learned so much from some very talented people, and I cannot wait to see what cool things we do next!

On Saturday, November 9th from 10am to 4pm, the North Museum of Nature and Science will host its first-ever Fall Fest at Millport Conservancy. Sponsored by Rock Lititz and Listrak, this new collaboration between two Lancaster non-profits is a fundraiser to support both STEM programming at the North Museum as well as Millport Conservancy’s efforts to restore the Lititz Run creek through soil erosion control, wetlands restoration, and stream management.

“My biggest takeaway from the Leadership Lancaster program is the importance of teamwork - celebrating the unique backgrounds and perspectives of every team member and how a team can be so much more with all of the skills and differences they bring to the table. We had many experiences that were designed to pull and stretch us out of our comfort zone - meant to help us grow and challenge our existing perspectives. The most unexpected part of this for me is the network of friends from diverse backgrounds I met along the way through these unique moments. We challenged each other constantly, and as one of very few people representing the arts in the group, I felt so grateful to see the value of what I do in a new way and to share my own unique perspective with others. As someone who is not native to Lancaster County, or even PA, I was originally daunted by the wealth of local knowledge, history and generations of business leaders participating in the program. After almost a year in the program, I felt connected to the community in a new way with a better understanding of what it takes to keep our county alive and thriving. Throughout the year we focused on many different kinds of leadership skills - visioning, trusteeship, inclusion, problem solving, coalition and consensus building. Don’t waste a minute of the experience! There are a million ways to be involved in our community and a field of interest for everyone to participate!”
A very big thank you to ATOMIC for making this year possible!
