This month we will be reading “How to Bake a Perfect Life” by Barbara O’Neal. We hope you enjoy reading this New York Times best seller and we look forward to discussing it with you!
“In a novel as warm and embracing as a family kitchen, Barbara O’Neal explores the poignant, sometimes complex relationships between mothers and daughters—and the healing magic of homemade bread.”
Local Diners Dinner Club
As much as we would LOVE to do our monthly dinner club year round, we have found that it’s a bit difficult to do with the hustle and bustle of summer commitments. We want all of you to enjoy your cookouts, family get togethers, vacations and of course wonderful food this summer. We hope to see all of you back at dinner club starting Thursday September 19, 6:30pm at Bazbeaux Pizza!
Leave a Legacy
Many of us have Y stories. We learned to swim at the Y as kids. We participated in a youth basketball league, or we enrolled our children in summer camp.
Even so, many people get only a small glimpse of what the Y does. During my 17 years working for the Y, I’ve had a chance to see what we really accomplish as a nonprofit in Indianapolis. We give everyone a chance to get healthier, help kids learn and graduate from school, and teach lessons about core values and leadership. When these things happen, everyone in the community wins, including you and I. That’s why I give something back to the YMCA out of each paycheck. It’s important to me . . . important enough that I hope you’ll think about joining me with a donation today.
Make a world of difference for someone right here in our community.
