The National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers sponsored a green-themed Oil Heat Cares fund-raiser in late September in Lancaster County, Pa.

Oil Heat Cares is a not-for-profit foundation that assists needy persons and organizations with the replacement of their heating appliances. The event included a tour of the Manheim Township High School, the first school in the country to install a geothermal heating and cooling system.

The Southeast and Central Pennsylvania chapters of NAOHSM, along with other guests, toured this landmark educational facility and enjoyed a presentation by Jeff Harris, school engineer, and Tom Koch, plant manager. After the school tour, a number of regular Care to Ride sponsors exhibited products: Peerless with its Pinnacle boiler; Energy Kinetics with its Smart Solar hot water system; Crown Boilers with its Energy Star-rated products; Honeywell with some of its latest control technologies; and Burnham Boilers with it latest energy-efficient boiler technologies.
