A Moment with Audrie

What a summer that was! I hope you all had some time to relax, spend time with family, and rejuvenate for the Fall. Maybe you took a beach or lake trip or swam and BBQ’d in the backyard, or maybe you took a cruise or…simply found a quiet hammock somewhere in a park. Whatever it was for you, I hope it was exactly what you needed.

Our summer at the Y was amazing. For those of you who may not know just yet, the YMCA and the City of Corona have partnered together to provide swim lessons and safety around water programming for our community. Additionally, First 5 Riverside has provided a generous grant to make lessons even more affordable for our families with children ages 0-5. From May-July we provided swim lessons to 603 children! This ensures that over 600 children are now safer in water settings and are more confident that they have the skills they need to enjoy and feel safe being in the pool, or at the beach or on a lake. We are still celebrating!

As a Y, we are so grateful for all the feedback and requests you are sharing with us. You have asked for swim lessons and additional youth programming. You have shared your desire for health-related programs and sports for your children. Our soccer and basketball programs are growing very quickly because at the Y, every child plays and sportsmanship and character building is included in each of our programs. We continue to serve over 500 children per day in our childcare program where parents can work worry free knowing their child is safe, nurtured and loved. We are continuing to plan our post-covid programming so stay tuned!

We will continue to reach out and listen to all of you. We are only an email or call away. Please go to our website anytime and see what is happening at your Y! We want to see you here and are open to your input and feedback as we continue to serve our community in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Let’s build community together.

Lean into the new season and we will see you at the Y!
