                Thank You Segrest Farms!!!!

The Cichlid Club of York PA had a very merry Christmas thanks to Segrest Farms.  Because of the efforts of Sandy Moore and Shelby Bush many of the CCY members received their Christmas wishes.  With over 40 cichlids donated to the CCY Segrest Farms made many of our members smile.  So on behalf of the CCY we thank Sandy Moore, Shelby Bush and Segrest Farms for this incredibly generous Christmas gesture!  Cheers!!

CCY Helps!

Introducing: CCY Helps

We really care about our community and the people who live in it. CCY Helps is our effort to aid and assist charities that are near & dear to our members’ hearts. We do this several ways. Donations through raffles at club events or actually helping out in other ways (like setting up a fish tank).

In February and March we raised $$$ for Dave Weitzel’s favorite charity:

St. Baldricks Foundation, which supports childhood cancer research.

Dave has promised to have his head shaved if he met his donation goal.

We raffled an Oceanic Evolve 4 Set-Up & tons of supplies and fish food and raised $382. So needless to say, Dave has met his donation goal & will getting his head shaved on March 25th!

Thank you also to the Aquarium Club of Lancaster & Capital Cichlid Association’s Big Fish Deal for their awesome support of this event!
