SANDRA'S Y STORY

“I lost my husband in 2012. I really didn’t know what to do with myself. I’m legally blind, so this makes it harder for me to do certain things, but not impossible. My daughter and I were looking for a place to work out so we decided to give the Y a try. This was the best thing that happened to me. At the Emerson YMCA, you are family. I joined the OG’s, the Organic Gardeners. The Y has afforded me the opportunity to become the Master Gardener for the Y. My Y story is simple - the YMCA has given me a lifeline.”
