This an exciting time for the Lawton YMCA! In 2014, we celebrate 100 years of presence, service and impact in the community. The YMCA is a cause-driven, charitable organization that seeks to improve the quality of life. Focusing on three areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, our Y is committed to a new era.
I can share with you the daily buzz…members arrive every day in an effort to maintain, improve or reclaim health, volunteers engage as leaders, children participate in programs that provide support to working parents, or teach a life time skill. That's just a glimpse…the relationships go much deeper.
Through on-going charitable donations we are able offer the YMCA to families and individuals who really need us, but could otherwise not afford it. We are so much more than a gym. We are a place to belong for life.
Momentum is building. We are currently under construction to complete a new health and wellness center, second gymnasium and child watch area.
The new development is the result of caring donors who believe in what the Y stands for and what we do. At the same time, we have the challenge of modernizing and updating our older facility areas. We continue to seek funding for improvements.
With Happy Birthday playing soon, be prepared for a year of historical happenings. If you have a great YMCA story, we want to hear it. Please follow the link on this website…or contact me, personally.
Happy New Year!
