The Y Kicks Off A Year of Changes

The Y Kicks Off A Year of Changes

Posted: Updated:

 A handful of future leaders were honored Thursday night at the YMCA Annual Campaign Kickoff Banquet.


   Dr. Rafael Perez was the keynote speaker and spoke on the Butterfly Effect and how a small change or one person can result in a big difference.  The children honored are an example of that and the Y's founding statement of Christian principals through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 

    $900,000 in scholarships was given out in 2013, because no one is turned away because they can't pay.  The Y hopes to beat that number over the next 2 weeks during it's campaign and reach it's $125,000 goal.
