Breakfast with Santa 2017

Our recent Breakfast with Santa was attended by many children from our After School Programs and families of our staff and membership.  Santa arrived to the delight of all the children.  Young and old alike enjoyed the opportunity to have a photo taken with him and to grab a little snuggle before he heads back to the North Pole to prepare for the big day.

A huge thank you to our Childcare Staff and all the volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly.

Creating Balance Program 2017

Our Creating Balance Program, which ran from September 26 to December 5, was quite a success.  The program, which was led by coordinator Cindy Andrews, was a support program geared toward helping individuals achieve a healthier lifestyle.

A private Facebook group was created where, on a daily basis, Cindy would encourage the participants with tips on drinking lots of water daily, information on meal portions, tips on healthy snack ideas, motivational quotes and general information on upcoming events for the group along with a recap of the previous week. Members within the group often encouraged others to join them to exercise either at the Y or outside during the nicer days.

Congratulations to all who participated in the program and a huge Thank You to Cindy for doing a fantastic job in motivating the group and providing such a professional and informative 11 weeks.

YMCA Peaceweek 2017

Peace Week 2017 was celebrated at our Y with our Annual David Elliott Grade 6 Speak Off and Peace Medal presentation. Mary Fisher was the recipient of this year’s Peace Medallion for her activism in suicide prevention and awareness within our community.

We also created a mural for our members to place their names on it in support of promoting peace.

Our Yoga for Peace class was fully attended and was followed up by a “Soup for the Soul” lunch that saw a steady stream of members dropping by for a nice warm bowl of soup or chili.

Peace Week is a very special time of year for YMCA’s across the country and we always look forward to celebrating locally.
