The NJ YMCA State Alliance annually hosts an event to highlight YMCA initiatives and recognize those who have shown leadership and support for New Jersey YMCAs in one of our three focus areas:  Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.  On Thursday, October 20th, the Recognition Celebration took place at the Forsgate Country Club in Jamesburg, NJ.

One of the awards of the evening was for youth volunteers, each nominated by their local YMCA.  The Alliance celebrated these unsung heroes of our local YMCAs who bring our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility to life through their dedication and energy. Helping young people understand the importance of service to others has always been at the core of the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance mission. We are proud to announce that one of Frost Valley’s own CiTs, Linnea Capabianco, was awarded the NJ YMCA Alliance Youth Volunteer of the Year.

Other awards given out that evening included the Social Responsibility Champion, given to Mark Irwin of the Somerset County YMCA and the Healthy Living Champion, given to Washima Redding of the YMCA of Montclair
