Happy Core Values Wednesday everyone!


I hope you have all been enjoying the warm weather — it reminds me of Summer! And I cannot wait until all of you come to camp in less than three months! This month in April, we are exploring responsibility and what it means to us!


Responsibility is part of the fabric of the YMCA, and the idea of Social Responsibility is even in our mission statement! The Y defines the focus of Social Responsibility as Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. You can read more here, at http://www.ymca.net/social-responsibility/. On the Y website, there are lots of stories of YMCAs putting Social Responsibility into action, I would love to hear some of your stories!





What are somethings that you are socially responsible for? Send your stories to me at lhutchinson@frostvalley.org and I will send you a Core Values in Action Tshirt!

I’m excited to hear from you!

Peace, Love, Bibbley,
