Message From Our CEO – Tina Carter
Don’t let the holidays ‘gobble’ up your sanity! November is a time to focus on being thankful for all the blessings we have received over the course of the year, some big and some small. As I look back on this year I have so much I am thankful for – I’m thankful for our members and how they show up every day in support of our Y – I’m thankful for our Board of Directors who’s leadership and guidance help chart an exciting future for our Y – I’m thankful for our talented and compassionate staff, who always put the needs of our members ahead of their own – I’m thankful for my amazing husband, children and grandson– I’m thankful for the Lord providing shelter, sustenance and the pouring out of grace and love on a daily basis for my family. There is one big event coming up that I am very thankful for and the support from our donors and community members purchasing table and tickets for. This is our Tool and Purse Bingo event which will be held November 5th at Active Aging. Please go to our website for more details and to purchase tickets www.meadvilleymca.org!
We couldn’t have done it without your support

FREE! Veterans Meal & Event
We realize it is not always possible to get to the Erie Veteran Center, so we are bringing the Center to YOU! Join us in this FREE event to honor our veterans during the week of Veteran’s Day. Erie Veteran Affairs will be bringing in a Mobile Veteran Unit for veterans to tour and learn about Erie VA’s and other local veterans’ services. There will be a guest speaker, a fellow Veteran, Sargent Bob Preston, and our Y will be offering a free meal compliments of Fat Eddy’s to our veterans and their families at this event.

Programs: TaeKwonDo and More!
Hello, I am Master Asa Williams IV, I have been practicing Tae-Kwon-Do for the majority of my life and currently hold a fourth Dan Black Belt. The specific style of Tae-Kwon-Do I teach is Ji-Do-Kwan and focus mainly on traditional self-defense. Instructing kicks, hand techniques, basic movement, forms, sparring after the first promotion test, all with no contact. I prefer to focus on the physical and mental health and safety of my students and promote self-control. Typically, I will take students ages 6 and up, with exceptions for certain students and encourage families to sign up together! Hope to see you and your family in class and kick it with us!
Come and join Master Asa Saturday mornings 10:30am-12:00pm at the Vernon Y Branch! Next session starts November 5th through December 17th, 2022, with registration closing by November 15th! Sign up today at: TaeKwonDo – Meadville YMCA
