Happening at YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County

From Nancy's Desk

Dear YWCA Friends,

The search is on!

Our job opening for our new CEO has been posted on Indeed and has already garnered numerous responses! The Search committee has been formed, and they have started the search process.

One of my goals as Interim CEO was to get an Admin team complete for the new CEO – and we are almost there! Please help us welcome Lili High as our new Development & Grants Director (started April 17), Jill Hoko as our new Health & Wellness Director (starting May 1), Cortney Kuhn as our new HR Specialist (starting May 1), and Cindy Perez as our new Bookkeeper.

Happy Memorial Day! Check out this website to read about Women and Memorial Day.

May 8 -12 is Teacher Appreciation week – take a moment to thank these folks to whom we have entrusted our most valuable resources – our young children!

Tennis Tournament (21st) Time

The YWCA cordially invites you to join us for the 21st Annual Benefit Tennis Tournament on Saturday, May 20, at the Gettysburg College Tennis Courts. Proceeds benefit the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County and our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all and is played in honor of Arthur and Muriel Rice.

The individual entry fee for the event is $75, $25 for high school students, and includes entry in the round-robin tournament, refreshments, and lunch. Guests are welcome to attend and join the celebration luncheon for $15 per person.

You can get more information or register online very easily. Of course, we are always delighted to have you stop in at the YWCA, 909 Fairfield Road, pick up a tennis tournament brochure, and register in person. Got questions? Please give YWCA Director of Membership Ian LeVee a call at 717-334-9171 ext. 120.

Hearts shall race anew

The YWCA Fitness facility is about to undergo a full cardio replacement operation. Chance of success? One hundred percent.

On or about May 19th, 23 pieces of cardio equipment! Including 12 new treadmills, four recumbent bikes, two upright bikes, two ellipticals, two step machines, and one HIIT UBE will be replaced.

Why? Because equipment such as this is due for a full "refresh" approximately every five years or so - and who doesn't love new exercise equipment?

All strength, weights, and cycles will remain - but they're next as we look to the future!

Aquatic Activity Abounds

Summer swimming lesson registration opens in just a few days, on May 12th. Starting then, you can register here.

We're still looking for lifeguards.

The sun deck is open! Got an umbrella or a few chairs you no longer need - and in decent shape. Let us know.

Support the Sharks swim team! Home meets are June 10 and July 8.
