Holidays at Powder Mill Apartments

Holidays at Powder Mill ApartmentsDecember is that time of the year when Powder Mill Apartments’ neighbors gather together to celebrate the holidays. One of our favorite traditions is our annual Holiday Dinner.

Last week we hosted two seating for a delicious home cooked meal with live music in our beautifully decorated community room. It was a wonderful chance for everyone to come together as friends and neighbors to celebrate the season. We loved watching residents and staff sit together and enjoy good food and great company. It makes our entire community feel like a family. Our Holiday Dinner is always one of our most popular events and has become an anticipated tradition.


Powder Mill Apartments Gives Back

Powder Mill Apartments Charity DinnerAt Powder Mill Apartments, we consistently strive to explore new ways of giving back to those in need. This Fall we hosted our “Thanks and Giving Dinner” with a homemade pasta dinner, side salad, breadsticks and dessert for delivery or pick-up.

We cooked all day and are thrilled to have raised $1500.00 for P.I.N.K Partners, a local York based organization that helps women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer face challenges before and after treatment. We give thanks to our sister communities for the inspiration.

We are genuinely proud of our residents and what they continually accomplish for society!


Fall in Love with Our Maintenance Team

Powder Mill Apartments Maintenance TeamIf you ask our residents what they love most about living at Powder Mill Apartments many will tell you it’s our wonderful maintenance team! Here at Powder Mill Apartments our main focus is customer service and making sure our residents are taken care of, which includes apartment maintenance. Our maintenance team’s main priority is to solve any obstacle in a thorough and speedy manner.

Whether it is a clogged drain, burned out lightbulb or a jammed patio door, our team members are on the job within the day. Unlike regular maintenance technicians that require you to take off work and let them in your house, with your permission, our team can make a service call while you carry on with your day. Our technicians bring card to leave at your door after each call. This allows our residents to know when a member has stopped in and explains how they have resolved the concern.

There is also no need to worry about after hours calls. With our 24-hour emergency maintenance we always have a team member on call to help with lock-outs and other urgent service requests.

Apartments near downtown York PA

Experience Past & Future in York, PA

Powder Mill’s beautiful garden apartments may be located in a quiet country setting, but we are near downtown York, a city with rich history interwoven with vibrant arts and culture, creative dining and unique shopping.

Did you know that York is the birthplace of our nation’s Articles of Confederation and the place where the phrase “The United States of America” was first coined? Three centuries of American history have shaped our county into an incredible preservation of revolutionary times. York’s many museums offer an opportunity learn about a time in which America was new, inhabited by immigrant pioneers and Revolutionary War soldiers. The Agricultural and Industrial Museum highlights York’s industrial contribution to World War II, while the Bonham House allows visitors to experience what life was like for an upper middle class family during the 19th and 20th century.

For a peek at York’s future, spend a day in downtown York. A full calendar of events highlights three separate unique districts. The Market District centers on Central Market, with over 125 years of history and 50+ vendors showcasing farm fresh, local offerings. Interested in the arts? The Royal Square is an emerging art district, home to local artists and galleries, cafes and special events. Completing the trifecta is the WeCo business district, home to a variety of restaurants, shops and even an independent film house/art gallery.

Come experience the past and future in this diverse and ever changing city we call home.
