Door County YMCA’s Celebrate "My Y Week"
- Feb 6, 2013 - 9:00:00 AM
My own “Y
Story” started when I was just two years old. My family had recently
moved to Door County and my mom took me to the Y to join and sign me up
for a toddler gym class. Now, fifteen years later, the Y is a big part
of my life. I have participated in everything from Saturday soccer, to
after school sports, to a homeschool gym class, to swim lessons, to
Pilates, and so much more. As a homeschooled student, the Y has been a
big part of my family’s physical activity as well as a place where we
have met many of our friends.
This year, I am honored to serve
as a youth member on the YMCA board as well as an official Y employee.
My volunteer work as a dance teaching assistant has grown into my job as
a head dance teacher for some of the smallest Y members. I enjoy being a
Y employee and I also enjoy my visits to the Y several times each week
to take classes, to volunteer for a program, or just to exercise.
