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.
We are pleased to introduce our new Pound Fit Instructors....
Gertrude Bradbury, Holly L and Janine Gillis. Janine is a brand new volunteer to our Y and we welcome her aboard. Please join me in congratulating these ladies in completing the training. Stay tuned to our schedule as we work with Gertrude, Holly and Janine in offering this awesome new workout. A special shout out to Rory O'Neill who has been teaching Pound at the Y for about a year now and has guided us through with her time and talent.
If you would like to participate in Jiu-Jitsu or Thai Bo, why not give Peter Kelly a call? He conducts sessions at our YMCA in the Millbrook Mall every week. You may reach Peter at 660-1361 or 634-5929 to get all the information on how to register.
Call today as space is limited!!!
While the weather outside makes it seem like winter is never going to end, the calendar says it's actually spring. Hopefully we'll start seeing some warmer temperatures soon.
Here at the Y, we've had a very busy winter. Our membership has once again grown to an all-time high with nearly 1200 members!!! That is simply amazing. We're happy to be providing a wide variety of quality classes with YMCA certified volunteers who are devoted to sharing their time and talent.
We celebrated Volunteer Appreciation Week from April 10 - 16 with presenting a token of our appreciation to our Group Fitness and Cross Training Center Instructors. While we hope our volunteers feel appreciated all year, it is during this week that gives us an opportunity to show them in person how important they are to the success of our organization.
Recently, we hosted a community forum as a result of the impending closure one of the pools here in the city. We were very happy with the turnout of nearly 200 people who came together to share their thoughts and ideas on a possible solution. All the data that was collected will be analyzed and a request will be made by the Y to secure funding to conduct a feasibility study. Once the study is completed, we will be providing the outcome of the collected data and the study, so be sure to stay tuned for all updates as they occur.
At the end of April, we will be saying goodbye to Valda Wheeler who is our Membership Sales & Service Supervisor. Valda is retiring from the Y to free up her time to care for her two grandchildren. We would like to wish Valda all the best and hope she continues to frequent the Y for her workouts.
Over the winter, our Childminding numbers have seen quite an increase. From the wee little babies to the preschool toddlers, it's such a pleasure to interact with such precious little people. It's especially sweet to watch the older children run off to the Studio across the hall followed by the line of little crawlers parading behind. It's a morning ritual that our staff looks forward to.
Our Pre-school and Afterschool Childcare staff have been quite busy as well. Our programs are filled to capacity which makes for very busy days for the staff and children alike. Slowly, but surely, the children are getting more and more excited to be cluing up another school year in just a couple short months. We want to wish them all the luck in the world as they continue through the end of this semester.
As this update comes to a close, let us share the words that were on each of the volunteer's thank you cards,
"If you want to touch the past, touch a rock.
If you want to touch the present, touch a flower.
If you want to touch the future, touch a life....."
Thank you to all our volunteers for your wonderful contributions!!!
