Dear Members,
When you become a member of the YMCA, you make a commitment to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle. We
applaud your contribution to building a healthy community by taking good care of yourself and your family; spirit, mind
and body.
When we welcome you as a member, we make a commitment to provide programs and services that you need to help
reach your healthy living and fitness goals. This includes; facility maintenance, repairs and upgrades, program
equipment and supplies and a qualified and friendly staff-volunteer team. We are focused on investing for the long
term success of the membership and to manage the intrinsic costs of overhead and administration.
Your membership dollars are utilized efficiently for ongoing delivery of service and developing opportunities for future
growth. We make every effort to give you the facility, programs and support you need to reach your full potential.
We are currently 4,100 members strong with high levels of activity from every demographic. Membership fees remain
competitive in our market and we wish to advise you that as part of our annual business plan the Board of Directors has
approved a 3% increase for membership fees effective July 1, 2015 to ensure we can adequately meet our strategic and
fiscal responsibilities. The new fee schedule can be found on our website and posted at the YMCA.
Thank you for continuing to be in control of your health and for choosing the YMCA. Together, we are building our
healthy community.
I wish you all the best for a happy and healthy summer. I look forward to seeing you often at the Y!
Warm regards,
Diana Deakin-Thomas, CFRE
Interim CEO
