YMCA leaders speak to Kiwanis

IMG_0136 (1)Today at our Kiwanis meeting, we had from the South Pasadena/San Marino YMCA, 4 weeks new at this job and many years with the ”Y”, Executive Director, Rick Politte as Speaker and Director of Development, Susie Berry.

Rick shared the history of the “Y” and explained all of the Community Services they provide. Did you know that “Basketball” started because of the “Y”? There were other things too!

As part of our Community Service to YOUTH, today we granted $500.00 to the YMCA. We look forward to working with the “Y” to serve our Community.
