Think Spring!! Although Phil did not correctly predict an early Spring, the calendar tells us it’s on its way. If you’re like me you are already thinking about opening the pool, cutting grass, playing baseball/softball, riding bike, and all the other fun warm weather activities we enjoy. Hang in there; won’t be long now.
As usual we have a lot going on at the Y, both inside the facilities and outside as we continue to plan for our future. We will soon be scheduling a Key Leadership Forum for our Capital Campaign. This event will be a huge first step in building our case for support to expand our facilities. We desperately need more space for programming, classes, events, and general membership space. In the month of February we surpassed 1,200 Membership Units, the highest in our Y’s rich history! This equates to over 4,200 individual members!! The more we grow the more we will need the additional space. Stay tuned for more information regarding how you can support the expansion. In the meantime keep utilizing the facility and all we have to offer.
Don’t forget to purchase tickets to our upcoming “A Taste of Grape & Grain” event on Saturday, April 13th at 5PM at the 10th Street Station in Ford City. Enjoy an evening of wine and beer tasting from various local wineries and breweries while supporting a great cause. All proceeds go towards the Annual Campaign, which continues to allow the Y to offer programs and memberships to those who otherwise would not be able. Tickets can be purchased from any Board or Staff Member or at the Welcome Desk. We would appreciate your support.
Enjoy the last few weeks of Winter and the start of Spring everyone. We remain grateful for your support. Not a day goes by where we don’t do something positive for our community. The collaborations we’ve established and the partnerships we are enjoying are allowing us to reach new heights. 2019 is our time and we plan to capitalize on it. We have the team in place and we are excited for what is in store.
2019 – Right Here, Right Now
