Dear YMCA Members and Supporters,

As we officially celebrate the arrival of the Vernal Equinox, beach trips and outdoor picnics start to give way to falling leaves and pumpkin carvings. Ever since I was a child there was something very special to me about the last weeks of summer and the first weeks of fall. The tree's foliage changing before your eyes, your last attempt at squeezing out a beach day, college football, NFL football, and the World Series all on the TV! Our Y looks to approach this season of gratitude with our members, volunteers, donors, and community partners firmly at the center, so we wanted to highlight all the ways we are putting our community first.

WELCOMING BACK OUR VOLUNTEERS FROM TIERRA DEL SOL:
One of the partnerships that is dear to our hearts, are the volunteers from Tierra Del Sol. “Tierra’s mission is to empower people with disabilities to fulfill their potential and desire to become productive citizens who are accepted, included and valued for the contributions they make to the economic, civic, and cultural vitality of the community.” Our partnership with Tierra has been such a blessing over the last 13 years, not only to our YMCA, but to our community and members. Volunteers of Tierra, welcome and greet our members, help with cleaning procedures, and help serve our community. Last week we welcomed back some of our favorite volunteers to help serve you!
