Anderson Area YMCA

We have been members of our local YMCA almost as long as we have lived here. There are other gyms, but we have always stuck with the Y. Not only does our Y have state-of-the-art exercise machines, it also has a huge pool, a warm therapy pool (which is twice the size of a normal residential pool), an outdoor kids pool and a nice indoor track up top.

But the reason we stay with the YMCA has little to do with those things. The reason we stay is that we believe in the Y and its youth programs. My husband claims that the best days of his childhood were spent at Y day camp during the summer. It’s where he learned skills that have served him all of his life, and he remembers that…he remembers how important that was in his life.

Anderson YMCA SymbolSo, we stick with the Y…they still have programs that teach kids cool skills, and they still have day camp during the summer. And if a child wants to go to a Y program but his/her parents can’t afford it, the Y will let that child go and the fee will be paid from a scholarship fund set up for that very reason. No child is turned away for lack of ability to pay. Ever.

“Building Strong Kids, Strong Families and Strong Communities”  That is the motto of the YMCA (or at least ours)…and I must say, in my opinion, that is exactly what they do.

 Thanks Y, for the difference you make in so many lives. We’re all in!

I loved the Y when I was a kid...there werent any when we lived overseas so my sons never got the benefit on having one to go too.  Glad to know they are still around!

I loved the Y when I was growing up. What a great place to shoot baskets and enjoy life as a kid.

I think everyone loved the Y. Wasn't there some famous song about it? Ah, yes, the Y-M-C-A! Gotta love the Village People.

Shawna...Hey! I assume that living overseas had its own set of valuable experiences for your sons, even without the Y....yes?

Hi Jason...Good to see you again; I thought you might have gotten stuck under a house or something! HaHa!

Selling Homes Changing Lives

The YMCA has played a vital part in American history. With the competition of newer and better fitness centers, it has been a challenge for many local YMCA's; yet in my home town, Flower Mound, TX it is still thriving despite many giant fitness centers that took away many of it's patrons and then slowing dissolved and disappeared from this Town.

It's small YMCA, yet many people still stay loyal and for that reason, it makes me happy to know it's still an active business in my community. They must be doing something right!!! And that should give all of us small business owners in Real Estate hope.
