Viewfinder: YMCA Prepares to 'Extend the Legacy'

The annual meeting of the Southington YMCA last week provided an opportunity for the organization to "predict the future" as members prepare for expansion.

The 84th Annual Southington YMCA Meeting last week gave "Sloper Swami Pooler" the opportunity to look deep into the future - and the thing is, it looks pretty bright.

The Southington YMCA celebrated success by announcing their long-term plans to members during the annual meeting and dinner at the Aqua Turf Club. It was a perfect opportunity for the organization as they hosted more than 400 members of the community.

"It was a great event and really gave us a chance to share the excitement regarding our long-term plans," Myers said.

In addition, the event gave the YMCA a chance to recognize those in the community for going above and beyond, including presenting the Unsung Hero Award to Linda Mendelsohn, the Reaching Out Award to the Mill Foundation for Kids, Inc., and Anthony Denorfia as the Person of the Year.
