WHY THE Y? KELLY AND BECKY LANE "I can barely remember NOT coming the Y. My dad’s office was across the street and I remember him eating lunch here. We always had a family membership. Fifty years later, we are still members and after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s twenty one years ago, we discovered Bjo and her Parkinson’s classes. Parkinson’s is relentless in its advance and Bjo’s classes help to slow down the advance. Fifteen of us that have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, regularly attend the classes and it’s the best way to cope with our disease and one of the best support groups we have." -Kelly Lane » read more
The YMCA and the World Service committee had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Pascual Jesus Mostaceros, the Executive Director of YMCA Região das Hortências in Brazil for a few days earlier this week. He came in on Sunday, July 6 and a volunteer from our World Service committee, Bruce Nearhood, and his wife Kim graciously hosted Jesus in their home. A fellow Brazillian, now American and YMCA volunteer, Angela Estes picked him up from the airport and took him to Bruce’s house and welcomed him with his native language of Portuguese. The Nearhood’s took Jesus to Mt. Rushmore that evening. On Monday, he spent the day at the YMCA with staff and he learned all about the wonderful programming of the Rapid City YMCA and it’s many sites (Giraffic Park Day Camp, LaCroix Links, outreach centers, Y House, Y Church, etc). » read more
