Donor Spotlight: Susan's Garden

The Lakewood Family YMCA is now an even more beautiful location. On September 18, 2022, a group of over 50 family and friends dedicated Susan’s Garden at the branch. The garden was created to honor the memory of Susan Conway Grimberg and her husband, Bill.

New members: Are you earning your Y credit?

If you joined the Y under the Save up to $50, Get up to $50 incentive, ask yourself if you’re on the path to earning your credit. New members who joined under this campaign paid half of the usual joiner fee. We ponied up the other half of your joiner fee and set it aside for you.
