Starting this Thanksgiving, our blog will be transforming into something that we feel has been missing from the Y. Thanksgiving is a holiday about family, and everyday we hear stories from and about our “Y family” about how the Y has affected their lives. Often humble, only a lucky few of us really get to know these wonderful, fascinating people. From facing illness and hardship, to overcoming fears or finding a place to belong, the common thread in these accounts is always one thing: the Wyckoff Family YMCA.
This is why we think it’s about time we share these stories with all of you to celebrate the diversity of our Y family, and thank you all for allowing us to be a part of your story. Whether we enter the plot at the beginning, middle or end, we hope that by learning more about each other we can strengthen our community and help give everyone a happy ending.
