The mission of YMCA help build a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body. From athletics to academic achievement, summer camp to senior activities and volunteerism to violence prevention, the Y doesn’t just strengthen bodies. It strengthens our community.
Our club has close ties to this club; Dave Mayer, the Sr. Branch Executive of this YMCA facility is a member of our club, Clint Scott is on the Board, and our club made a large contribution to its construction.
