August Local Diners Dinner Club @ Union 50

Thursday, Aug 21, 6:30-8 p.m.
 There is a new hotspot in town!  For the month of August, let’s check out Union 50, the newest restaurant to move just off of Mass Ave.  They have a fantastic food selection (can someone say pomme frites!) and a great drink list as well.  Let’s go and have some fun!  

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.
