MAY 2020 ^ MALLORY YOUNG
The Fremont Family YMCA would like to thank Mallory Young for blessing our YMCA community with your gifts and talents! Mallory has worked at the FFYMCA for almost a year in our Before and After School program, in our Wellness Center, and in the Summer Fun Club kitchen. She is very dependable and always willing to chip in whenever and wherever necessary. Mallory has really embraced keeping the Y clean and safe for our members in the Wellness Center, especially during COVID. She knows which machines members like to use and is diligent in keeping them clean. Some of our older members with walking canes can't carry the spray bottle and towel, so Mallory will go and clean off the machine for them. Thank you, Mallory, for going above and beyond to make our community a better place for members and staff! We appreciate you!
JUNE 2020 ^ CHRISTY CONRAD
The Fremont Family YMCA would like to thank group fitness instructor, Christy Conrad, for her dedication to the Y, and for her POSITIVITY! Christy has been a fitness instructor for the past 22 years and currently teaches BODYPUMP, Spin, Kickboxing, and Barre classes. During the time the YMCA was closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, Christy taped workout videos in her basement and posted them on the YMCA's YouTube Channel so our members had access to classes from their homes. When we re-opened, Christy volunteered her time to work in the Wellness Center until we had enough staff to cover all of the shifts. Christy goes above and beyond to make our YMCA STRONG. Thank you, Christy! We are so proud to have you as part of our YMCA COMMUNITY.
