Volunteers and corporate sponsors recently gathered at the Summit YMCA to plan for the Y’s 125th Anniversary Good News Gala Event set for Saturday, November 5. Funds raised from the Gala will go toward the Summit Area YMCA’s Annual Fund which supplies financial assistance for Y programs and outreach services for families in our community.
