The City of York Human Relations Commission (CYHRC) is pleased to announce the 2020
City of York Human Relations Commission Diversity Dinner. As the city’s official
constituted body to investigate discrimination and to educate the community about existing
inequities, the Commission will be celebrating 45 years of a historical and memorable journey.
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

250 West King Street
York, PA 17401
As the Keynote Speaker, the dinner will feature Mrs. Ann M. Van Dyke, a civil rights investigator and trainer for the PA Human Relations Commission for over 33 years.
A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of awards to those individuals and groups who by their efforts make York a more open and equitable place for all its citizens.
This year’s award for a Large Business which promotes harmony and fair treatment for its
employees as well as among those it serves will be given to WellSpan Health. This large health corporation has added a department to specifically deal with issues of bias and inclusion.
Receiving the Small Business award is Mi Caldero Restaurant, a family-owned Puerto Rican
restaurant credited with spreading an appreciation for the island cuisine among Yorkers for
over ten years.
The Dr. Frederick D. Holliday Community Service award goes to Mr. Robert Lambert, President of York County Libraries. Mr. Lambert has served the local library for many years and recently earned acclaim for leading an organization called Libraries Feed, which aims to engage libraries in efforts to fight child hunger.
