Welcome to November!!  The leaves are about done falling and the snow has started to fly.  We are at that time of year where we could experience all four seasons in one day.  If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.  I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall and preparing for Winter to arrive.


As always, we have much to celebrate and be thankful for at the Y and within our community.  Kudos to CEO Chris King and Staff for hosting an amazing Halloween event the evening of October 29th at the Y.  The Y was transformed into a Monster Walk where over 400 children and community members were escorted through each themed space within the Y and left with candy donated by Y Members, Volunteers, Staff, and Board Members.  Fun was had by all and the event was a huge success.  Thank you to all who put the time in to make this event possible.  Once again you have outdone yourselves.


Rec Soccer has wrapped up for another Fall Season.  Great job to Andrew Scholl, Coaches, and Players who made this season possible, even with all the uncertainty of the Pandemic.  It was so nice to see a normal activity continue, even as we were going through these difficult times.  Thank you to everyone for all your patience during this year’s season.


Youth Basketball registration is now underway for ages 3-10.  Please visit the Welcome Center to register your player.  Although this year’s season will be different than traditional Y Basketball Seasons, we are going to have a lot of fun with it and the players will learn a lot about Basketball and the fundamentals of the game.  This is a great opportunity for players in these ager groups to develop their skills and prepare for the next level.  We hope to see lots of signups as the season will begin soon.


I’d like to wrap up by thanking those who are utilizing the facility and coming back to the Y.  We truly appreciate your support and enjoy seeing you in the building.  Let us know what we can do better to help enhance your experience at the Y.  For those who have yet to come back, whether it be a financial decision, or maybe you’re nervous about coming back, please feel free to reach out to Chris King or myself to discuss your concerns.  If there is anything we can do to ease your fears or make the Y a place for you to come back to, we’d love to hear from you.  Our goal is to provide an economically, safe environment for the community and its members to strengthen mind, body, and spirit for all.  Let us know how we can help.
