YMCA fills vital role
I am just completing my tour of duty as president of the Martinsville Henry County YMCA and I write for several reasons.
First, I want to thank our wonderful members and supporters in the community. Without you the YMCA would not exist. I also write to urge those who are not members and have not contributed to consider joining and contributing to ensure the continued successful existence of this important institution, which is one of the backbone organizations of the community. As we have all witnessed firsthand in our community, the fact that an institution or organization has been around for a long time is not assurance that it will exist into the future and we must be vigilant to ensure that the future of the “Y” is secure.
