2022 year in review header (1)

If I could sum up 2022 in one word, it would be gratitude.

Gratitude for our members, families, kids, and community partners who remain connected and committed to bettering themselves and their communities.

Gratitude for volunteers who support our vision, mission, and leadership which allows us to move, pivot, and meet the needs of those we serve.

But mostly, gratitude for a team of employees who not only show up each day ready to serve, but also who have shown they are willing to support and sacrifice for one another. I have seen staff put aside their own to-do lists to jump in and help support the front desk staff at our fitness facilities. I have watched staff work extra-long days because they spend time supporting our Child & Youth Development staff at the school locations providing our youth with homework support, outdoor activities, and more, and then go back to their desks to finish their tasks.

And finally gratitude for another year/opportunity to bless each other and those we serve.
