ANNOUNCEMENTS
Member & Staff Appreciation Party & Healthy Kids Day, Sunday, April 30, 3-5pm

We will be hosting a celebration especially for our members and staff on Sunday, April 30th. There will be water, juice, popcorn and musical entertainment by our very own Matty Russo of "Matty Begs". He will perform a solo acoustic set of popular covers songs and Matty Begs' original tunes! There will be face painting provided by our member Will Bowman of Face Off Face Painting. We will have an obstacle course and bounce house for the children to promote Healthy Kids Day as well. The plan is to hold the party in the back parking lot and grassy area weather permitting. If there is rain, we will move the festivities indoors. This is our way of saying THANK YOU to all of you that make our Y such a wonderful and welcoming place to be!

  • $100 delivers one month of after school skill strengthening for an at-risk student.
  • $250 teaches three children drown proofing self-confidence.
  • $300 enables a senior to participate in RX Fitness and other camaraderie building classes for a year.
  • $500 equips four girls with a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living through Girls on the Run.
  • $1,000 makes it possible for two families to enjoy the Y for a year.
