HAVING FUN & BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
Meet Dani & Jacob our new Youth Relationship Managers

Dani and Jacob will be at the Y on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.

The Y is the starting point for many youth and teens to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they will carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical. When kids play sports or learn to swim, they can build confidence,
discover their personal best, have fun and be a part of a team. 

Dani and Jacob will be walking the building engaging with our youth. They might be seen shooting some hoops, playing gaga ball or helping someone with a workout.

They are excited to keep youth active and engaged here at the Y.

THANK YOU CHAD WOLF, BUILDING & GROUNDS DIRECTOR

I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to Chad Wolf, Building & Grounds Director for his 10 plus years of service. Chad will be leaving the Y at the end of November to once again be a business owner. Chad has done an amazing job over the last decade keeping our facility, equipment and grounds looking and running great. He's managed several improvement projects including the Witte Wellness Addition, new roof top units, the second floor bathroom, our outdoor improvements and more. Please take a minute to say thank you to Chad and watch for information in the lobby on a formal time to give him our thanks.

On another note, thanks to WMRN and iHeart Radio the Y now has a monthly podcast. So, to hear some spoken word about the Y Click here for a YMCA Podcast .
