Our Metro YMCA Association has a huge opportunity to serve thousands of children and familes with an over night camp at Bethel Park/Lake Lanier in Forsyth. Currently our over night camp has a waiting list and many children are missing amazing experiences. The property to be developed is the Corps of Engineers.
The Corps of Engineers has opened a public comment period. After the period, it will decide to lease the property to the Y for the camp development or to Forsyth County for development of a 75 spot RV park. Additional information on the precise plan can be explored at www.friendsofymca.org .
The YMCA has a long history of delivering quality, mission driven inclusive programs. Remember your own Y experience and build upon that for thousands of children whom the Y impacts on an annual basis.
We need your help:
It only takes a few moments to make comments. Comments in support of the YMCA proposal can be submitted at the end of this E-Blast or you may go to the Corps website at: http://www.sam.usace.army.mil/pd/pd1.htm
Letters supporting the Metro Atlanta YMCA's proposal are welcome and needed. They may be forwarded to me by Feb.11. Fayette Family YMCA, 215 Huiet Road, Fayetteville, GA, 30215.
Your local YMCA Board, volunteers, members, and staff thank you for your assistance. We appreciate all each of you do throughout our community.
