Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA Celebrates Iowa YMCA Appreciation Month

[Marshalltown, September 2018]— Governor Kim Reynolds is signing a proclamation this month designating September 2018 as YMCA Appreciation Month, in recognition of more than 150 years of helping build a healthy Iowa. As a result, the Iowa YMCAs initiated a statewide effort to engage community leaders with their local Ys to share the organization’s three focus areas: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

“The Marshalltown YMCA has been serving Central Iowa since 1876,” said Carol Hibbs, YMCA-YWCA CEO.  “As an organization we welcome all into our programs, and we support efforts to strengthen our community.”

The Y has been posting social media messages in September to highlight this month.  For more information about the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA, visit www.ymca-ywca.org or call 641-752-8658.
