2019 Annual Members Meeting

An Open Letter from the Chair of the Board

First I would like to thank our members for their continued support and commitment to the Pocono Family YMCA. For the last year I have had the privilege of being President of the Pocono Family YMCA Board of Directors. My mission has been to build a culture of collaboration between the Board, the staff, the members and our greater community knowing that together we can best meet our objectives of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. This past year we hired our new CEO Scott Peckins and together we have worked diligently to strengthen our staff, our services and our programs for your benefit. I first came to our Y forty years ago and I believe that experience played a significant role in my personal success story. I want everyone who walks through our doors to feel that. Finally, the board is committed to creating a Y that will be an integral part of the future of the Pocono region for many years to come. We hope you appreciate our efforts and again we are grateful for your continued support.

- Kim Yarnall,
Chair of the Board
