Hello there! I am your friendly neighborhood Census worker spreading the news that the Census is hiring. The Census offers flexible hours and great pay. The Census offers part-time and full-time positions. Help your community and apply at https://2020census.gov/jobs. Thank you and good luck.
Every person and organization in a community can participate in the prevention of child abuse by putting one of the fifty-one Advancing Parenting bumper stickers on their cars or by making the stickers available to the public. Offices, agencies, businesses, and organizations can put sets of the stickers in holders and place them on tables and counters so customers can choose one or more for their cars. Parenting messages on vehicles are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. Just one will be read thousands of times. Visit www.advancingparenting.org. Please share. 🙂
Im trying to log on to your website to see whats offered but Im getting an error that says the server can not find the address.
the site Im going to is http://www.valleyymca.org/.
Why am I still being charged for a monthly membership when I don't have access to the facilities?
Hey Shannon and Deb, Thanks for the shout out today on my horse! Loved working out with you this morning!😍💪
Are you still going to charge us for something we can’t use like our membership?
How about a strength train together and tabata class?????
I was shocked to see that the YMCA is still holding Silver Sneakers (senior citizens) classes during this time, gathering the most vulnerable amongst us together in groups of 25? Its extremely dangerous for them to gather, and you're risking lives. How can you comply with government (both legal and scientific) recommendations and stop these classes and encourage them to distance themselves? Its a basic, potentially life-saving health risk.

A week at camp for a child can be a life-changing, magical adventure.

Camp helps kids build independence, self-esteem and confidence during what is often their first experience away from home. Campers learn important life skills while making memories and friends that will last a lifetime. Opened in 1938, Camp Sky-Y has been in operation for 80 years in the Prescott National Forest.
