September 9 is Grandparents Day, and it’s a fabulous reminder to join in activities that span age groups. But you don’t have to have a grandparent to celebrate. Older neighbors and family friends will appreciate you reaching out, too. Here are some ideas for what to do on Grandparents Day or any time you want to connect the generations.

Here at the Y, we love hearing about the ways our programs impact people and about the special connections made between staff and members.

Eating dinner as a family is one of the best ways to connect as a family, share what’s going on, and enjoy each other’s company. In today’s world, it’s easy to let our phones distract us at the dinner table. In an effort to strengthen family relationships and help parents connect with their children, we want to share 25 questions you can ask around the dinner table to help cultivate conversations with your children.

Dear YMCA members and friends,

Happy back-to-school time! We hope you had a wonderful summer. It means so much to our TownLake team to share the seasons of life with you.
