Decatur County Family YMCA Annual Meeting

The Decatur County Family YMCA held their annual meeting on Tuesday.

This year has been both challenging and exciting at the YMCA and it is always humbling for them to see the lives that they touch. In 2021 they met their $3.5 million campaign goal and also broke ground on their expansion in May. They became major health partners with Shelby County and already have 4,000 members at the new facility, which is off to a fantastic start. Their year-round feeding program is going strong and their 21st Century program continues to serve elementary students. They will continue to grow their annual campaign and look forward to a bright future with expansion and a strong board and staff.

Greensburg Community High School teacher Gary Bailey discussed the Youth and Government program. This is a nation-wide YMCA program where student delegates participate in a Model Government Conference. Delegates from all over the state go and take over the Indiana State House for a day where they get to be a legislator, senator, or part of the judicial branch. They then write a bill to hopefully pass into law and they present this in front of a full chamber. The students are questioned as they would be as real senators and legislators on their bill. This program continues to grow every year.

They recognized Dale Boing as a retiring board member. Their incoming board President is Kristen Fry. New board members include Philip Deiwert, Herb Hunter, Scott Richard’s, and Christina Murray.

The DC Family YMCA Staff of the Year award was given to Abby Sallee. Their Volunteer of the Year went to Heather Corya. The Shelby Co. YMCA Staff of the Year went to Brad Bishop. Their Volunteer of the Year went to Kim Halstead.

The ribbon cutting for the new family changing locker rooms was after the meeting.
