Series on York, Pa.’s, Crispus Attucks Center posted online

It’s interesting the work you do on a snowy day can pay off when it’s hot months later.
In December, the York Daily Record/Sunday News’ Ted Sickler and I went through tubs of material at Crispus Attucks Community Center telling about that organization’s 75th anniversary.
We organized the photos and stories into a series of 30 profiles about the organization that has long so successfully served the recreational and social needs of minorities in York.
The profiles have been running in the York Sunday News Viewpoints section since March. They will end in the fall at about the time that CA is planning a major event.
We have the complete set online, headlined 75 years of Crispus Attucks. …

When you add these weekly chunks together, you have a narrative of the organization’s 75 years. We’ll bring together these weekly bites later in the fall. This will be the first publication that CA’s story will be told in such detail.
We’ll put that publication online, too.
Those days last December have turned into time well spent.
