Celebrating Community!

Saturday, June 8th was a great day here at the
Saddletowne YMCA.  We kicked things off in the morning with a Stampede
Breakfast put on by the amazing folks at the Stampede Board.  Our parking
lot was turned into a western wonderland as hundreds of people came out to
enjoy the traditional pancake breakfast as well as many other fun activities
such as chuck wagon rides and rope making.  Traditional square dancing
was present along with an infusion of local NE culture with the Punjabi Dance
Troop  preforming  as well.
In the evening Saddletowne Y staff had the chance to support
our friends in Martindale as they celebrated 25 years of their local community
association.  As relative newcomers to the NE, we have received great
support from the local community associations and  were happy to attend
this special event.  Community building does not happen through a single
individual, association or organization and we are extremely pleased to part of
this collective community in the North East.  We hope to celebrate many
more years of collaboration in our community!
