The Y Run at the Harvest of Talents will take place on Oct. 25 at 8:30 a.m. A portion of the proceeds from this event will support the YMCA Scholarship Fund to help families in need with programming expenses, while the other portion will support the Harvest of Talents to help fight world hunger. Awards will be given to the top male and female runners in each age division, along with goodies also being provided for the runners. You can register in advance at the YMCA office or by using the multi-registration form at All forms received after Oct. 22 will require a $3 fee increase. On the day of the event there will be a registration table where you can register from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Come out for a morning of fitness and support two worthy causes.

Registration for the YMCA Youth Volleyball program will run until Oct. 22. Forms received after Oct. 22 will require a $10 fee increase.

The Y will host YMCA Party Night on Oct. 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the YMCA Activity Center, 719 Wyatt Ave. This Halloween party is for children in first through fourth grade.

Nursing Homes

In 2009 the Lincoln Area YMCA is employing the motto "Raising the Bar." Some great things in the works to help facilitate this new motto are a new online site, three seasonal brochures, higher expectations of ourselves, plus many others. The bar has been raised and the community will benefit like never before.

For more information on Lincoln Area YMCA programs and events, contact the downtown office at 604 Broadway St., Suite 1; visit; or call 735-3915.
