Greetings, I’m Ray Crowell and I have been an active Member
and Supporter of the G. Cecil Pruett Community Family YMCA
for almost 6-years now after moving to Cherokee County with my
wife Mickey in the spring of 2014. For 12-years we were active
members at the YMCA in Cleveland County, North Carolina. We
believe in the value that the ‘Y’ brings to any community and so we are
loyal fans of the YMCA and enjoy the benefits of membership. These
benefits don’t come free and it takes a steady source of funding to
make things run the way they should to support our members
and to grow the membership. Along with many others at the ‘Y’, I
have been given a vital mission to help raise these necessary funds that
will stay here at our home YMCA to benefit all of us. “The Why It Matters
Annual Giving Campaign” starts NOW and I will have lots of help
from my team members and I hope from all of you to do this. And we
will be discussing with you about how to make the mission successful.
So please do engage with our team members to talk about our mutual goals.
Our team name is “The Kooks Team” … you know us …. we are your friends
… don’t let the team name fool you! We are a team in the Wellness
Department and we hang out at the ‘Y’ most every day.
Our YMCA in Canton offers a vast variety of Programs, Services, Activities,
Classes, Training and don’t forget the social programs and fellowship that is
also a vital aspect for many of our members. You don’t just workout
at our ‘Y’. There is so much more for those who wish to take advantage of a
full menu available. Our ‘Y’ is active in the community everyday
serving kids, seniors, adults and everyone. Indeed, as a kid I was a beneficiary
of the programs and services at the YMCA in downtown Nashville, TN. I learned
how to swim there and came to realize even as a young kid that the ‘Y’ was a
good place to hang out. I felt secure and surrounded by people who cared and
shared a common interest in something much more than just a Gym or a Pool.
So come hang out with “The Kooks” and help us achieve our goals to raise money
necessary to support our new Executive Director, Rommel RitaRita, as he leads our
‘Y’ to a 1st Class – Gold Standard. Thank you for your kind consideration and we
hope to see you often at the YMCA.
Cheers! Ray and all of the Kook’s Team Members: Contact any of us or Text me at
704-418-3104 and I will have one of our team members contact you.
