My Y Story
Jessica Lee, a teacher at North Penn High school, started coming to the YMCA in April 2013. She started coming because she felt she was, “out of shape.” Jessica was a little nervous about starting classes and when she first came to class she could not do even one “real” push-up. Since April, she has been coming to class at least 4 times a week which has helped her to be even more active while away from the YMCA.
The Tioga County Branch YMCA has a close-knit group of seniors who faithfully attend SilverSneakers and Senior Aerobics. The group had a Senior Social on Thursday, September 27th. Over 20 seniors attended and everybody brought a dish and enjoyed time socializing.
Ten year old Joshua Nobles and his family moved into the area just a few months ago. Joshua’s parents, Jim and Maria, enrolled Joshua into Tioga County YMCA Summer Camp to help him meet new friends as well as stay active.
Dennis had always been looking for a place where he could exercise in a fun and safe environment while fitting the time in around his busy work schedule. He was frustrated because he was overweight and wanted to start becoming a healthier adult.
Alan Weed, age 10, has loved coming to the Y since the Tioga County Branch first opened. He has participated in sports and after school programs and came to multiple weeks of camp this past summer. His mother, Diane, is grateful that she has found an affordable, yet fun place for Alan to interact with other kids his age.
