Weekly Roundup – July 24, 2015

HELLO TO MY COUNTRYSIDE TRIBE,

 
Wow, what a week!  So much to share!! 
 
Mother Nature has finally decided to work with us on some decent summer weather, renovation construction is rolling, we’ve survived a phone outage and eaten a LOT of barbecue!!!
 
Speaking of barbecue, LARA SURFUS is a shoo-in as a “bright spot” this week for getting all that delicious food together for us!  THANK YOU LARA!! We were thrilled that so many of you were able to stop by and enjoy!!

Speaking of lifeguards, it appears that lots of fun was had at last week’s lifeguard summer party:

Looking for some creativity in action?  Swing by the child care center and check out the cute summer door decorations!!  BTW, child care has open spaces for fall preschool – see Yvonne for details.

CONGRATS to all child care staff for making it another week without succumbing to the following method of containing an active toddler:

Here is AMY ROSE after Cincinnati  Bell told her we might be without phone service for 3-4 days:

Huge thanks to Amy for toughing it out as she was incessantly transferred from provider to provider in an attempt to figure out what had happened to the phone lines.  Her experience is exactly what we do NOT want to emulate when it comes to customer service.
 
The last bright spot I will mention this week came from a member regarding CHRISTY BESSEY.  She stated: “I would like to recognize Christy for all she does for everyone that enters her spin class.  She is always making the class fun and exciting with games and prizes.  She supports our class throughout the week with texts and Facebook.  If she knows you are doing any kind of race or activity, she will get you a card and a little gift.  She truly cares about the YMCA members.  ❤ her!! ”  What a great compliment, way to go Christy!!
This is the kind of feedback we can expect when we :

As the sun sets on this busy week, please remember the wise words of the ever-fantastic Walt Disney:
