MADISON, NJ - Everyone is welcome at the Madison Area YMCA. The Y maintains a goal that no one be turned away from membership as a result of an inability to pay. How is this possible? Through the support of our community, generous donors, campaigners and volunteers, the Y can continue a financial assistance program enabling people of all ages to participate in YMCA programs and services regardless of their abilities to pay.

Through the support of more than 80 volunteers and campaigners who have been working wholeheartedly to reach this year’s Annual Campaign goal, and over 695 donors right here in our community, we are more than 90% of the way there!

This year, an inspiring 232 staff and 101 additional community donors have made contributions to the Annual Fund during the Campaign. These numbers directly translate to the support and strong awareness our community has of the Madison Area YMCA’s mission.

The 2013 Campaign will run through May 17. Please consider donating. However, the campaign is only one of the ways that allows the Y to provide assistance to anyone who resides or works within the Y’s service area. Donations are gratefully accepted throughout the year. All funds raised remain local and are available for Y membership, programs, childcare and day camp. Support is provided based on demonstrated need, with the goal that no one be turned away from membership as a result of an inability to pay.

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. To make a difference in our community by donating or for more information, visit madisonareaymca.org or call 973-822-YMCA (9622). To hear how the Y has impacted members right here in our community, please visit www.youtube.com/madisonareaymca for Y stories.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right.
