The YMCA has been asking members to share their stories explaining how the Montclair organization is special to them.
Here, Donna Blanes writes about her special connection to the Montclair Y…
I have been a member of the Y during different stages of my life…starting in the late 1960’s…first as a young single teacher…then as a mother of three active children who flourished with offerings at the Y (Starlets, etc!). Now it is time for me, as a newly retired senior citizen who has the time and flexibility to explore the Y’s many offerings and programs. The Y stays committed to its mission of “mind, body and soul” nourishing. I did not hesitate when asked to help out with fundraising to help others in need enjoy the YMCA as well.
Share your Y love in comments.
