Meet the Y: Virginia

We’d like to congratulate Virginia Wier, one of our most recent Super Member All-Star Highlight (aka SMASHers*) here at East Communities!

Virginia was nominated by Carrie (Y group ex instructor and personal trainer) for her enthusiasm and commitment to Aqua Interval class. (Pictured with Carrie on the left, and Virginia on the right)

“She is a leader in class. She arrives early and stays late and is always willing to help new members!” -Carrie

“Aqua Interval class gives me strength and I love spending time outdoors with friends and the amazing staff… I love coming to the Y because of all of the great people.” –Virginia

Congratulations, Virginia! We’re so happy you are a part of our Y family!

*SMASHers are nominated by staff or other members because they go above and beyond in their efforts & dedication. They are truly an important part of the fabric of our YMCA community, and they deserve some recognition! If you want to leave some encouragement for our SMASHers, stop by our branch and leave a sticky-note of encouragement on the SMASH boards where their bios are on display.
