Hays Communities YMCA member Cheyenne Bell recently spoke to a group of donors and volunteers where she spoke about finding the strength to endure pain – to allow it the space it needs to exist while also finding ways to heal.
Hays Communities YMCA board member Amanda Rickman grew up in Kyle and has committed to serving this community of neighbors. She became a Y member back in 2011 just before her wedding, and she joined because her sister was a member and they both wanted a workout partner.
During the summers, the YMCA is especially bustling with interns and volunteers, all of whom make a unique and important impact on our community. We are pleased to introduce Devante Lucas, one of this summer’s interns at the TownLake branch.
When I joined the Y, I was facing down a personal abyss of midlife disappointment, the kind that precludes sleep with incessant self-judgement. I was ready to try something, anything new. So I took a chance.
