CEO Steve's First Message

October 2, 2020
Dear YMCA friends,
I have been with the YMCA movement for 20 years, and I have never witnessed the strength of the YMCA as I have in my first few weeks in Findlay. We have the foundation of a vibrant YMCA, its people – our talented staff and board, and its presence – and our connection to community and loyal members. I am humbled and excited for this opportunity to lead this organization with a focus on mission and community.  These are challenging times, and the YMCA will be here for you and your family, as you have been here for YMCA. Notably, thank you for supporting the YMCA throughout 2020 as we provided pandemic childcare for essential community workers and expended our fee-a-child program during further hardship. Your commitment to being a member sustains our efforts to serve our mission and greatly strengthens this wonderful community.
I am passionate about making a difference in our community and I look forward to hearing about the impact the Y has had in your life. I hope to have the opportunity to get to know you and invite you to attend one of the following Meet-and-Greet sessions with myself and staff members at the Child Development Center, East Branch and Downtown YMCA to learn more about our services and discuss the needs of our community. The dates for these events will be as follows:                                               
  • Tuesday October 13, from 5pm to 6pm – East Branch.
  • Friday October 16, 3pm to 4pm – Child Development Center
  • Monday October 19, 6am to 7am – Downtown YMCA
  • Tuesday October 20, 10am to 11am, 5pm to 6pm – Downtown YMCA
I appreciate your continued support of the Findlay Family YMCA, and I look forward to sharing stories and memories with you.
With Mission Focus,
Steve Crone
