Help our friends in need! We will be collecting NEW youth swimsuits/trunks, beach towels, and goggles! So many children don't know how to swim and equipping them with the tools to do so is just the beginning! Starting Saturday May 26th we will be accepting donations. Thank you so much!

The Y is about building relationship and strengthening the bonds of our community. May's theme is Friendship. M.E. Lyons members Tricia Lynn and Jenn Pikal met here at the YMCA 2 years ago. Since then they have become best friends. Jenn says it was Tricia running the Queen Bee half marathon that inspired her to want to run a 5K challenge so they decided this year to do the the Flying Pig 5K together. They both pushed each other and ran it in under 35 minutes!! Yay Friendship!!! #Yfriends Share your Y Friendship story!
