Georgette Roy is this year’s Peace Medallion Recipient

As part of YMCA Peace Week, YMCAs across Canada present the YMCA Peace Medallion to individuals or to a group, who, without any special resources, demonstrate a commitment to the values of PEACE.  The values of PEACE are Participation, Empathy, Advocacy, Community and Empowerment and this year, the Peace Medallion is awarded to an individual who has demonstrated these values for over 20 years through her generosity and commitment to the Fredericton community. We are pleased to announce that Georgette Roy is this year’s recipient of the Peace Medallion. To read the full story, visit us at Community Impact on our site.

Swimming Lesson Update

On September 15, the YMCA advised current registrants that swimming lessons were postponed until Tuesday, September 28, due to availability of instructors. Unfortunately, this continues to be a challenge and in order to offer swimming lessons this session, the current schedule had to be revised.

Revising the schedule means that all current registrations will be cancelled and members will have to re-register for another lesson. The new schedule can be found at: Revised Fall 2021 Aquatics Programs October 4 – December 12

 

Pre-registration for those currently registered in swimming lessons will open at 8am, Wednesday, September 29 online and in-person. Open registration will be available October 1 at 8am.

The revised swimming lesson schedule will begin Monday, October 4.

I apologize for this significant inconvenience; we have been working hard for the last two weeks to keep the existing schedule, but are just not able to make it work for this session.

Sincerely,

 

Amber Corby

Director of Wellness & Membership
