This is where the magic happens. You bring members, a great location, some sort of edible food, and drinks into a pot and simmer for 2 hours. There is some work involved but it’s a skill that you’ll keep forever.

HELP OUT WITH THE BIG BED RACE ... WITHOUT HAVING TO RUN: Bell Socialization Services recently found out that a large group of volunteers who helped out last year with Bell’s Bed Race have had to rescind their offer to participate this year. YYP has been asked to jump in on this, particularly since it offers opportunities for members/family/friends to participate without needing to run.  Bell could use people to assist on Saturday, April 21, with set up and directing bed drop-off traffic (6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.) – 8 volunteers, race timers (8:45 to 11:45 a.m.) – 8 volunteers, and tear down (11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) – 8 volunteers.  If you're interested or want more information, contact Kevin Forry at  or 717-767-7501.
