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.
