The Greater Scranton YMCA believes all children, adults and families from our community deserve the chance to experience all the Y has to offer. For so many, though, the resources are not available to join the Y, send a child to preschool or enroll in the after-school program.

That’s why on Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2022, we’re asking for support. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. On Giving Tuesday, our goal is to raise the funds needed to ensure those most in need from our community can benefit from our services.

“The Greater Scranton YMCA is proud to turn no one away for an inability to pay,” said Trish Fisher, President & CEO, Greater Scranton YMCA. “Annually, we award hundreds of thousands of dollars to low-income children, adults and families from our community, allowing them to benefit from all the Y has to offer. Funds raised for our year-end appeal will allow us to continue fulfilling our mission.”

As part of the Greater Scranton YMCA’s fundraising efforts, the Y is proud to participate in AllOne Charities’ Give Day. From Monday, November 28th through Wednesday, November 30th at 4:00pm, AllOne Charities will match contributions participating organizations raise up to $1,000. Donations can be made on AllOne Charities’ Give Day donation form or mailed to 83 East Union Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701.

NeighborWorks Names Gerard Hetman RULE Scholar

The Rural Urban Leadership Program (RULE) of Penn State Extension, Penn State University, has named Gerard Hetman, Community Development Specialist at NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania, as a participating scholar in the upcoming RULE XIX class.

RULE is a transformational leadership development program that brings together community leaders from across Pennsylvania to foster both professional and personal leadership development. Participants come from all lifestyles including farmers & agribusiness, community leaders & officials, business and private industries, and education practitioners. They have different interests, and goals, with one common thread: a commitment to public involvement in solving community problems.

While the program has a strong focus on issues affecting rural Pennsylvania, RULE participants come from across the state, and study institutes are held in both rural and urban locations. Gerard is one of 24 incoming scholars that will participate in RULE XIX, with the class engaging in ten study institutes over the course of two years.

“We are very excited for Gerard to be accepted as a scholar into the upcoming RULE XIX class,” said Jesse Ergott, President & CEO at NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania. “Anyone who knows Gerard recognizes his deep commitment to improving our community, and this respected program will allow him to do what he does best: to build strong, collaborative relationships with his fellow scholars in order to benefit our area and other communities like ours across the Commonwealth.”

RULE XIX scholars will learn strategies for taking charge and leading their organizations and communities in positive directions. Through practice, each participant will assume new responsibilities and develop new skills and confidence. Every skill they learn will be directly and immediately applicable to the issues and problems facing their organizations and communities. Participants in the program will achieve various results:

  • Increased understanding of the economic, political, cultural and social forces inherent to the public decision making process.
  • Enhanced knowledge of the application of leadership skills, processes and strategies to resolve conflict.
  • The ability to study community problems and issues from a broad economic, political, cultural and social perspective.
  • Increased understanding of contemporary social and economic problems and policy issues, and how to effectively impact public policy.
  • An understanding of the budgetary concerns encountered by rural/urban communities.
  • An enhanced awareness of international relations and the world economy.
  • A broadened understanding of the legislative process and legislative procedure.
  • Increased ability and opportunity to participate in local government and non- profit community organizations.
  • Expanded and strengthened leadership skills, the catalyst for the democratic process.
    The RULE program has its roots in the Public Affairs Leadership Program (PALP), which began in 1971 and included five classes. PALP accrued 259 graduates to their credit. RULE started in 1985 and has 450 alumni. Combined, the PALP and RULE Programs have graduated more than 700 alumni who have gone on to become catalysts for change in their communities.

Scranton Tomorrow Organizes Small Business Saturday

Mayor Paige G. Cognetti, leaders of Scranton Tomorrow, and local business owners recently gathered at Scranton Tomorrow headquarters on Linden Street in Downtown Scranton as Mayor Cognetti officially proclaimed November 26 as Small Business Saturday in the Electric City.

American Express created this national movement to increase sales for small businesses across the country. Now in its 14th year, Scranton Tomorrow is spearheading Small Business Saturday promotions in Downtown Scranton. Those who shop and dine in the Downtown Scranton Business District during the holidays are encouraged to spread the joy on social media using #shopsmall, #smallbiz, #supportlocal, #shoplocal, #dinelocal.

Supporting local makes a significant impact on the economy. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses create 1.5 million jobs annually in the United States and donate 250 percent more than larger businesses donate to non-profits and community causes. Small businesses are vital to the local economy, too. American Express estimates that for every $1 spent at a small business, $0.67 stays within the local community that business serves.

In Downtown Scranton, independent businesses offer plenty of options to make supporting local easy. In addition to in-person shopping and dining, many retailers and restaurants are promoting online sales, curbside pickup, and delivery services for convenient shopping and dining in the Business District.

Wilkes University To Host Max Rosenn Lecture

Award-winning writer and historian Jill Lepore will deliver the Wilkes University Max Rosenn Lecture in Law and Humanities at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 26, 2023, at the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center for the Performing Arts, 239 South River Street, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

A bestselling author, journalist and professor of history, Lepore’s books and essays explore absences and asymmetries in the historical record. Her popular podcasts examine themes including “Who killed truth?” and “the rise of doubt.”

She once wrote “History is the art of making an argument about the past by telling a story accountable to evidence.” Lively, funny, and argumentative, Lepore’s books have been described as surprising and enlightening, as well as elegant, sobering, beautifully written and intellectually rigorous.

Lepore is the David Woods Kemper Professor of American History and Affiliate Professor of Law at Harvard University. She is also a staff writer at The New Yorker. Other essays and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Times Literary Supplement, Foreign Affairs, Yale Law Journal, American Scholar, and American Quarterly. Her works have been widely translated and anthologized.
