Christmas Candlelight Tours
The Hans Herr House was built in 1719 by Christian & Anna Herr. It is the oldest surviving house in Lancaster County, PA and is the oldest Mennonite meeting house still standing in the Western Hemisphere. Today the home is a museum used to collect, preserve, & interpret artifacts relating to the history, life, & faith of Lancaster County’s first European settlers.
Annually, Hans Herr House hosts candlelight tours of the property. This year’s theme was the history of iron.
Buck Company joined in with a display of iron castings and staff members to educate the tour groups.

Women in Business Mentoring Program (Excellent opportunity for high school girls entering 11th grade on up.)
Buck Company is proud to support the Lancaster Chamber Mentoring Program.
Buck Company has joined in the ranks with many Lancaster County businesses, through Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), to mentor young women during their junior year of high school and provide them with an opportunity to explore career choices for their future. Students and mentors are paired based on the student’s business interests, the mentor’s profession and the location of school and business. The program corresponds with the school year, beginning in September and ending in May of each year. There are currently 9 school districts enrolled in this program with each district having up to 8 students participating.
Each student must participate in 2 job shadowing experiences. Mentors are responsible for contacting and coordinating job shadowing experiences for their student along with submitting detailed information to the student’s school district and LCCI. Job shadowing demonstrates the connection between academics and careers, making class work more relevant. It also introduces students to the requirements of professions and industries to help them join today’s workforce.
Throughout the school year, students and mentors attend various programs such as:
Completing and reviewing a Strengths Profile
Attending The Chamber Expo where students visit booths featuring area businesses and identify potential job shadowing opportunities
Meetings with facilitated discussions on topics such as communication and trust building and keynote speakers
A program featuring a fashion show demonstrating proper attire for the workplace, resume writing and job applications
Meeting students during lunch at their school district and discussing job shadowing experiences
A final celebration held at the Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College with lunch and keynote speaker
