YMCA OF THE FOOTHILLS | MAY 2021
HAPPY MAY
 
Hello and welcome to the first day of May! This month is exciting for our Y! We will be opening our Verdugo Hills Family YMCA starting May 3rd, with their pool opening up in June! We will also be celebrating all of our Mothers (Mother’s Day, May, 9th) and Women (National Women’s Health Week May 9-15th) through our Mothers, Members, Movement & Motivation "MAY" Initiative. Each week our Y will highlight ways all members can pursue healthy living activities through our social media. We are also thrilled to announce that we have an all-new Resident Camp at Camp Big Bear that will take place July 4th-10th, registration is now open!
 
May also provides a meaningful reminder that healthy living and wellness are not limited to just fitness activities. May is also National Mental Health Awareness Month. The Y’s pathways to wellbeing have been, and always will be, a holistic approach to wellness by improving the lives of all people spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. For those in need, you can access our Chaplain Services Program by contacting Debbie Pile at [email protected].

As we move into May, we cannot forget how successful April was for our Y and community. As a Nation, we recognized the Armenian Genocide for the first time in history. Pickleball has been a success at our Crescenta-Canada Family YMCA. We officially cut the ribbon to our Locker Room which has been under renovation for the last year. (See photo) Lastly, our Annual Support Campaign exceeded its goal of $30,000 by generous donors like you. Every dollar raised will go to help many families in need. If you would like to give, you can do so, below. We are thankful to have you in our community, and we promise to continue to bring Your Y Your Way!
