2018 Salute to Veterans

Thursday, October 25, 2018

In November, join our YMCA family in saluting Y members, staff and friends who have served our nation.

November marks Military Family Month and it’s a great way to recognize the dedication, sacrifice and service of military personnel and their families. The Armed Services YMCA established the honor in 1993. On November 11, the nation honors service men and women on Veterans Day.
