2011 Strong Family
The Orton Family, Amie, Devin and their children Cache and Naomi, came to the O’Fallon Family YMCA while Devin was attending graduate school. Due to a full class schedule and two young children they could not afford monthly membership fees, but because of the Strong Community Campaign were able to join the Y. Membership at the Y meant that as a family they could engage in a community that mirrors their beliefs and values a strong spirit, mind and body. During the past two years, their son Cache has flourished in swim lessons and youth sports programs while Naomi, just over 1 year old, has benefited tremendously from the value-driven childcare available in our Childwatch area. Quality childcare means alot to the Ortons as Amie and Devin place a great amount of importance on physical health. They regularly attend our Group Exercise classes - Zumba, Piloga, and Cycling and Devin was able volunteer coach for Cache’s Little Kickers Soccer team at the Y. Amie and Devin appreciate the wholesome family atmosphere and the Y’s programming planned with the whole family in mind.
Please consider a donation today to the 2011 Strong Community Campaign so together we can strengthen the foundations of our community.
