Please congratulate Ray on being our April Member of the Month! Ray has been coming to the Y for almost half of a year! When asked what his favorite part about the YMCA was, he said, “All of the friendly patrons and staff, as well as the YMCA being close to home!” Ray got started at the YMCA after retiring from the IHSAA and the Shelbyville casino. He needed to involve himself in a year-round activity and the    SilverSneakers classes were an excellent choice! A fun fact about him is that he was the only player from the ‘54 state championship Milan team to appear in the movie Hoosiers! We appreciate everything that Ray brings to the Shelby County YMCA!

Please congratulate Imojean on being our March  Member of the Month! Imojean has been coming to the Y since we opened our doors in 2021!

I also enjoy meeting new friends!” Imojean joined the YMCA with her longstanding exercise group when we opened. They enjoy going out to lunch every Friday after class! A fun fact about her is that she loves circus peanuts! Please stop by and say congratulations to Imojean the next time you see her!

Please join us in congratulating Elle on being our March Employee of the Month! Elle has been with us at the YMCA for about 3 months! When asked what her favorite part about the Y, she said, “Everyone is so friendly and I enjoy chit-chatting with folks. Plus watching the littles learn to swim reminds me of tadpoles and that makes me chuckle!” A fun fact about Elle is she hiked 330 out of 2190 miles of the Appalachian Trail. She is planning on doing another 126 miles during Spring Break and one day she will hike the whole trail from Maine to Georgia without stopping! She loves teaching, but between saving for a 6-month hike and remodeling a century-house, it doesn’t pay enough. For some extra pay, Elle got started at the Y lifeguarding! Make sure to say congratulations the next time you see her!
