A Message From The President



Dear members and friends,

As Board President, I am looking forward in the coming year to continuing to support the excellent service provided by our YMCA to the surrounding communities. The YMCA’s commitment to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility is an important component in the lives of many in our local area. In the coming year the goal is to build upon the success the Y has experienced to this point, including expanding the number of people served by the Y’s mission.

In terms of services provided, the Y turns no one away due to a lack of funds and sends hundreds of local children to camp each summer through funds raised at our annual golf tournament. In terms of programming, the Y continues to create innovative programming for all fitness levels, including the highly effective Prescribe The Y Program, and several new programs in our Fit Life Center for new exercisers. Our weight room received a face-lift this summer, as well as a number of new machines and benches.
All of these accomplishments are possible only through the herculean efforts of the Y’s dedicated staff and cadre of volunteers, as well as through financial contributions from members and individuals in the community. In order to continue the Y’s high level of impact and success in Franklin County and beyond, the Y is seeking your help. You can help by becoming a new member, sharing your Y success story with others, volunteering for one of the Y’s many community service activities or committees, participating in the annual golf tournament or other fundraising activities held throughout the year and making a donation
to the Annual Sustaining Campaign. Becoming involved with the Y (or increasing your current level of involvement) truly is a grand opportunity to increase your own fitness level and social interaction while at the same time supporting and enriching your local community.

We also hope to grow membership to help our financial picture by offering the BETTER TOGETHER: YMCA MEMBER REFERRAL PROGRAM. If you bring in a new member, both of you could receive 10% off your membership dues for at least one year! Make sure to see the Welcome Center for details.

Thank you for your commitment to our YMCA and to our local community.
