[December 24, 2009]  The Lincoln Area YMCA welcomes Steve Shanle as the new sports and aquatics program director. Steve may look familiar to some, as he completed his internship with the Lincoln YMCA during the summer of 2008. He brings many valuable attributes to the YMCA, and we look forward to continued success with Steve in our Y family.
