Located at the lower level of the Millbrook Mall at 2 Herald Avenue in Corner Brook, the Humber Community YMCA provides a wide range of community based programs.
YMCA programs are proven to have a positive impact on children, youth and families, dramatically enhancing their health and overall well-being, both today and well into the future.
Motion: Article 12 – Amendment or Repeal of By-Laws be amended.
Currently reads as:
The bylaws of the YMCA may be replaced, amended, repealed or added to, only by a motion passed by at least two-thirds of the votes cast at a general meeting of the YMCA and provided that the motion is given at least thirty (30) days, setting out the proposed replacement, amendment , repeal or addition. Notice shall be prominently posted in all areas and facilities owned or operated by the YMCA and distributed to all voting members of the Board.
The bylaw as it will read if amendment is adopted:
The Board of Directors may by a vote of three quarters (3/4) of the directors present at a meeting of the Board, enact, amend or repeal any Bylaw of the Corporation, but no such decision shall have any effect until sanctioned by a special resolution of the Members present and entitled to vote at a meeting duly called for the purpose of considering the enactment, amendment or repeal of the By-law.
No meeting of the Corporation is duly called to consider the enactment, amendment or repeal of a By-law unless a notice of the meeting sets out the proposed enactment, amendment or repeal in full.
Rationale: To allow the Directors to make amendments to by-laws at regular board meetings instead of only at the general meeting which is held only once a year..

Can you believe we are going into March already? Time is flying by so fast!!! And with the temperatures and the nasty weather that we've been experiencing lately, it'll be nice not to have to bundle up so much just to go outside for a little bit of fresh air. In the meantime, why not come on in, meet up with a friend and see what we have to offer to keep you nice and toasty warm.
Our winter fitness schedule is jammed packed with all kinds of fitness goodness!!! And it's easy to tell that this community is seeing that. For the first time ever, our membership has not only hit, but exceeded, the 1000 member mark on a given day. We are currently at around 1065 members which we are thrilled about.
Our 4th Annual Strong Kids Campaign Zumba Fitness Fundraiser, which was held on February 22 was a huge success. Nearly $1300 was raised which will enable us to assist individuals and families who do not have the capacity to pay for health and wellness and childcare. A huge thank you to all who volunteered and participated. Your generous donation is greatly appreciated.
Our morning child minding numbers have remained quite high over the past few months. Our staff just love seeing their excited little faces come through the door every morning so they can enjoy playing while their mommies, daddies and grandparents attend class or go to the Cross Training Centre. Their morning ritual is to run straight to the kitchen, gather around the table and enjoy their morning snack with each other. It's almost like those little tykes have their very own breakfast club!!!
All of our Childcare Staff in our Afterschool Programs and our Playing to Learn Programs have been working very hard over the course of the school year, so far, to provide much needed childcare to working parents and invaluable learning for our preschoolers.
Our Community Youth Network continues to remain busy with lots of activities for our youth. From movies to pool to many fun activities, it's great to see youth dropping by to connect with their peers in a safe and fun environment.
Our Cap Site, which provides free internet access to the public, is open to a steady, daily stream of individuals who wish to surf the net for various reasons. While most individuals are just looking to browse the latest happenings on Facebook, etc. a lot of individuals are seeking help in finding employment, retrieving their banking information or looking to pay a bill. In any case, we are pleased to offer this free service to our community.
We hope this gives you a little snapshot of some of the many great things we do here at the YMCA. Stay tuned for our next update this summer.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
