WE HAVE THE Y TO THANK FOR FATHER'S DAY.
Sonora Louise Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington pitched the idea of having a special day to honor dutiful dads everywhere at a regional YMCA meeting. The organization loved the idea, and held America’s first Father’s Day celebration on June 19, 1910.
The YMCA is committed to making an impact on the health of our community. We believe in taking a holistic approach focusing on spirit, mind and body. As such, members can participate in a wide array of activities that better their health at the YMCA.
Swim Lessons – The YMCA offers swim lessons at the CYC pool every summer. The two week long sessions include individualized attention from experienced staff and emphasize safety, fun and the four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
