IMPACT IN ACTION - Y STORIES
“When we joined the YMCA we didn't just receive a membership, we gained better health, more opportunities, and most of all long lasting friendships. The Y community has been with us through thick and thin and for that we are truly thankful. You can’t find that at just any gym.” -Mackenzie & Derek Ewing, YMCA Family Members & Instructor
“There is no other way to describe summer as a camp counselor other than the words “learning experience.”! Working for the YMCA Summer Camp has presented many opportunities for both myself and the other counselors to demonstrate healthy living and social responsibility to the campers.” -Laurel Royer, YMCA Lead Camp Counselor
“Everyone at the Y is friendly and down to earth. If you have a question, someone will answer it. Everyone here has some sort of mission to get healthy. My husband has Parkinson’s and his neurologist says regular exercise is one of the best things for him.” -Susie Leopold, YMCA member since 2003
