2019 Community Service Award Winner

Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce honors Scott Peiffer for community service

Scott Peiffer, an employee in the Quarryville Borough Maintenance Department, is the recipient of the second annual Community Service Award from the Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce. The award recognizes a person who has provided important, lasting, volunteer public service in Quarryville and southern Lancaster County.

Kendall Keeler, chairman of the chamber’s community service award committee, presented Peiffer with a plaque during the chamber’s annual banquet at Drumore Estates in Pequea. In addition, Keeler announced that a $500 scholarship in Peiffer’s name will be awarded to a student in the Solanco or Lampeter-Strasburg school districts who will major in a business-related field in college or technical school, or who plans to operate their own business following high school graduation.

While presenting Peiffer with the award, Keeler noted Peiffer’s remarkable support for the community and involvement in many activities, specifically mentioning the Hometown Heroes banners in Quarryville, the handicap accessible facilities at Huffnagle Park, the Solanco Fair Association, the Quarryville Teen Club including the Miss Solanco Pageant, and the Quarryville Lions.
