- On September 9, the Pointe-Saint-Charles YMCA hosted the Pointe-Saint-Charles Hall of Recognition. Each year, the Hall of Recognition honours community stakeholders for their dedication and work for the good of the community. The 2017 recipients were Deborah Gunn, Leo’s Boys, Bishop Willard and Saint Columba House. The event raised more than $4,000!
- On September 11, the Cartierville YMCA, the City of Montréal and the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough inaugurated a brand new play area in partnership with the Québec government. With funding from the Imaginer-Réaliser Montréal 2025 municipal strategy, two natural playgrounds were developed on the Cartierville YMCA site. This space will promote physical activity for children and make the sector greener, thanks to the play area’s new shrubs and plants.
- The West Island YMCA is opening a new Mind and Body studio in September. A big and bright space that looks directly onto the courtyard, the studio will provide a warm and welcoming environment for several group classes. Find out more at your centre!
- In October, the Downtown YMCA will renovate the Stanley Street entrance, which will improve the centre’s accessibility and energy efficiency. For more information, read the centre’s bulletin boards.
- The Du Parc YMCA will host eight Parents Inc. workshops in October and November. These workshops will discuss a variety of subjects, such as self-esteem, school perseverance, laughter and preventing substance use, giving parents the tools they need to deal with important issues for their family. Contact your centre’s team for more information about the workshops.
- The next Culturally Y event will take place at the Du Parc YMCA on Friday, October 13. Everyone is welcome! Are you an artist, singer, poet or musician? Ask the centre’s team about participating in the event!
