To the editor:
On behalf of the Lincoln Area YMCA and our "Y Can
Do" families and participants, I would like to thank the Lincoln
Elks Club and the Knights of Columbus for their generous sponsorship
of the Y Can Do program.
The YMCA's Y Can Do program is free to all special-needs students
in the area in grades kindergarten-high school. Each month the Y Can
Do group meets for a special day -- having a picnic, play day, field
trip or to celebrate an upcoming holiday. Every summer the children
are also offered a free week of YMCA swim lessons at the Lincoln
Elks Club pool. With the assistance from the Elks and the local K of
C, we are able to provide our children with quality, trained staff
from District 27 and LCHS. Also, thanks to their support, we are
able to supply our program with meals, drinks, admissions for trips
and much more.
Without the Knights of Columbus and the Elks Club, the YMCA would
not be able to offer this worthwhile program to the kids and
families that could use our help. So once again, thank you to the
Lincoln Elks Club, the Knights of Columbus and all of your members
for helping the YMCA build strong kids, strong families and a strong
Y program director
