Plaistow Community YMCA

“We are all about community engagement” says Tracy Fuller, the Regional Executive Director of the Plaistow Community YMCA. Since opening its doors, the Y® has worked  closely with the Timberlane Regional School District to offer many programs and special events and is looking to host many more. To date, the YMCA and the Timberlane Regional School District Community Partnership Program have teamed up to offer free yoga classes to district employees, helped with the annual student Halloween “Trick Or Can” canned food drive, started a leadership program at the middle school and has added the Y® as a bus stop so all students can access the facility after school. “We have started a great collaborative relationship and we look forward to many more opportunities to work together” said Scott Strainge. The District is moving     towards creating a Workplace Wellness Program agreement with the Y and both are  looking into ways to connect their summer enrichment programs. The partnership has proven to be a great way for each institution to meet their goal of serving the students and families of Timberlane.
