Celebrate Achievement

The YW was bursting to celebrate the achievements of their favorite eighteen year old! The June 2nd lunch hour was particularly loud and joyful as the YWCA celebrated a YW resident's high school graduation with a luncheon party complete with decorations , a high school memory display, a favorite meal, cake, flowers, balloons, gifts, and lots of best wishes. The group had additional reason to celebrate as the eighteen year old will begin college in the fall. To help prepare for the next step, the Board, residents, volunteers, and staff showered the young woman with gifts to assist in the transition including gift cards, book of poetry, college tee-shirt, new wallet, candles, and towels. And lastly, the YW presented her with a YWCA Book Award to assist with the purchase of books in the fall.
