Y Member Spotlight: Safety Around Water Family

As you may know, our YMCA provided 178 FREE lessons for individuals spanning from ages 6 months thru adulthood. In fact, we even had a 79-year-old learning to swim for the first. It is because of our great Donors, Volunteer, and Members that we are able to impact so many lives.

“Dear YMCA,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the Water Safety Lessons you provided for my family. We struggle so much financially and swim safety lessons just aren’t in the budget. Being able to bring my kids for the two weeks of classes without having the anxiety and stress that comes with the fees was amazing.

Oliver and Eliza did great and loved going to lessons. They loved it so much that even when the weird cold and windy weather came they still begged to go to class! Your instructor (Ashley) was great in both the parent/child and my son’s class (7 years).

What your facility has provided to our family is not just free swim lessons. Its confidence around water and basic potential lifesaving skills that they NEED.

You also provided ME with more confidence around CPR and I cannot thank you enough. My 2-year-old has choked twice and once I had to yell for someone to call 911 before it dislodged thankfully. I now know what I was doing to help her wasn’t the best method for her size. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
One day we hope to be able to belong to an amazing YMCA facility like yours! Thank you again to you and your staff for a great two weeks of classes!”
