Kona Ice brings yummy treats and Annual Campaign support to Baxter

Our Y families got to enjoy a refreshing treat poolside this summer.  Kona Ice graciously parked outside our pool gate for families and day campers to purchase shaved ice.  The sweetest part is that a portion of every purchase went back to our Annual Campaign fundraiser to help Y families who need financial aid.  Jeanne and Ken Farah recently presented a $1,100 check to our Member Involvement Director Mary Overstreet.  Thank you Kona Ice and thank you to our members who supported our cause!
