Throughout the Boothbay Region, people know the YMCA. But there’s so much more to our Y than one might think. From exercise to education, from volleyball to volunteering, from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen bodies — we strengthen community. Your contribution to the Annual Fund will make it possible for children, families and adults to have access to Y programs that improve their lives. Give generously today!
Meet the Haney family, our 2017 Annual Fund chairs:
The YMCA has always been a part of our lives. When relocating to Midcoast Maine, the Boothbay Region YMCA was a major reason we chose to settle in this community. In fact, when we did move here in 1983, the first thing that we did was join the Y.
Physical activity has always been a high priority for us and the Y has allowed us to maintain our lifelong commitment to staying healthy. You can find us in the pool five days a week! When our daughters were younger, they were able to get involved through Y programs and camps, and it is a joy to see our grandchildren now doing the same.
While we initially joined to stay active, we quickly learned that this YMCA is the centerpiece of the community. The Y provides opportunities for fitness, but also for companionship. The staff and other members feel like family, and we are thankful for the friendships that we have formed at the Y.
In our opinion, health care starts with prevention. It has always been the Y's mission to encourage a lifestyle that promotes a strong spirit, mind and body. People of all ages, backgrounds, incomes, and abilities are welcomed here to be part of the community and discover the best within themselves.
We support the Boothbay Region YMCA because it is the center of our lives and we believe in giving back locally. The Boothbay Region YMCA would not exist without the generosity of this community, and we are proud to be part of the tradition of philanthropy that sustains our Y. Most importantly, we see the impact that our donations make every day when we come to the Y.
Will you join us in supporting the Boothbay Region YMCA? Your donation ensures that our Y’s doors are open to all. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children, adults, families, and seniors in the Boothbay Region.
