Seanna's Y Story

I had been a Lincoln YMCA member for years before my family joined the Copple Family YMCA. The Lincoln YMCA has been a place where I can get a mental break from being a single mom, where I know that my son will be safe at Child Watch. We became a part of the Copple Family branch – when on a whim; I decided to apply for a part-time job to work at the Front Desk. This job allows me to provide for extra opportunities for my son, while also getting plugged into a wonderful community.

I love helping other parents and families find activities to help wear their kids out at the YMCA; my son has so much energy and we need the Y to wear him out! Copple Family members and staff have fully embraced my son, Everett, into the community. He has found wonderful mentors in the lifeguard staff. There is always a word of encouragement for both of us whenever we go to the YMCA. We love having a place to go have fun together. I am personally participating in this session of Y-Lose It to get back in shape so I can keep up with Everett! The Copple Family YMCA has made my little family so much bigger.
