Keys for the City
Keep an eye out for street pianos around Lancaster this summer! The pianos, all designed and painted by local artists, are part of the Keys for the City project, a program of Music for Everyone.  LCSWMA is proud to support the project as this year's presenting sponsor. Be sure to stop and play a tune on the LCSWMA-themed piano at Park City Mall Food Court in Lancaster. Learn more about the project here.




LCSWMA's piano theme is "Waste is a Resource." We hope
this design helps the community discover an important aspect of society (waste) that most people forget about once they throw something away.

In Memory of Zammie
A big thank you to Emma Bramble for recently donating a bench for Farmingdale Trail Park. She enjoyed frequent visits to the park with her rescue dog Zammie, before his recent passing. Emma gifted the bench, made from recycled materials, to memorialize Zammie, while also enhancing the park for all visitors. She hopes others will use the bench to rest, watch their dogs play, and enjoy the park.
