My Y Story

Everyone Belongs at the Y. You Should Too.

There’s something for everyone here at the Y!  We’d like to know about your experiences here and how it has impacted you or your family’s life and well-being.  We’ve created this submission form for your convenience to share the initial details of your story.  Once we receive it, we may contact you for further information or a video interview to learn more. 

Here are some story guideline suggestions: 

  • Inspirational stories of triumph that demonstrate how the Y provided a program, facility, resources, or staff support to help you and your family.  The story should also demonstrate the Y’s mission in some way through either Youth Development, Healthy Living, or Social Responsibility.
  • It demonstrates the role that the Y played in your or your family’s success in overcoming specific circumstances, challenges, and issues, a disability, met a need, or how you adopted a healthy lifestyle.  It should be compelling and unique.  There are numerous stories throughout the Y, but we’re looking for the ones that dramatically stand out and have a positive “wow” factor.
  • The subject of the story must be willing to share it with the community at large and be able to articulate it well and present a positive image.  If used, the story will likely be captured on video and be edited for various communications channels to encourage others to belong to the Y.

Just a note to say how wonderful Lori Chadwick-Jenkins’ classes are. She teaches senior stretch and her classes are Monday-Friday 11:00 to 11:45 and aqua fit 12:15 too 1:00pm. Also, Debbie Kenny (Mid-Tempo Aerobics 10:15 to 11:00am). I look so forward to returning to the Y every year 1-1 to 4-1 to take Lori’s and Debbie’s classes.
