Yarmouth Lions welcome their partner, the Casco Bay YMCA, and a new Club member
The Notes – May 8, 2018
At the April 16th meeting of the Yarmouth Lions Club held at the Muddy Rudder Restaurant, our guest speaker was Scott Krause, Branch Director of Casco Bay YMCA. The Yarmouth Lions have been a partner of the YMCA for many years, and Scott wanted to update the club on what our local YMCA is doing for its 20th anniversary.
Membership in this branch is vibrant and growing as the Y focuses on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. Within these areas, current initiatives include creating more space for childcare, water safety, a youth-in-motion program designed to combat obesity in young people, and an emphasis on providing tailored support for people needing extra assistance. Scott emphasized that no one is ever turned away from the Y due to his or her inability to pay for membership, and it is there for everyone. The Y is first, and foremost, a service organization.
Welcome Adrienne Nardi!
Lion Bob Swan, with his customary mix of humor and history, inducted our newest member, Adrienne Nardi, Executive Director of the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce, into the Lions Club.
Adrienne was sponsored by Lion President, Sandy Bowie. Per usual, Adrienne was welcomed into the club with the traditional “LIONS ROAR.” Welcome aboard, Adrienne!
