South Montgomery County Shadowbend YMCA Looking for Archives, Memorabilia, Stories and Alumni Members to Celebrate 25th Anniversary

September 5, 2011

The first YMCA in The Woodlands opened its door on September 21, 1986 at 6145 Shadowbend Place. The South Montgomery County YMCA Staff needs your help as they prepare to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Shadowbend YMCA facility. According to Roxanne Davis, YMCA Community Liaison, “We are searching for archives, memorabilia and stories of the earlier years of the YMCA serving the community. We need photos, articles, t-shirts, sports photos, swim lesson photos, facility photos, staff photos an volunteer photos especially from 1986 – 1993. We also are in need of names and addresses of earlier staff, volunteers and members from that time period who are no longer current members so we can reconnect, celebrate and recognize those that are part of the South Montgomery County YMCA foundation and heritage. Were you a member of the staff or member of the YMCA in the late 80’s? Please call me at 281-681-6723”!

The South Montgomery County YMCA has come a long way since the Fall of 1986. Today the YMCA is recognized as the largest YMCA of the Greater Houston Area and one of the largest in the State of Texas serving more than 40,000 families annually helping them grow stronger in spirit, mind and body.  In addition the annual Partner Campaign has reached an all time high providing over $600,000 in scholarship and subsidized programs to more than 5000 area individuals, youth and families in 2011.

The community is invited to a 25th Anniversary Open House Celebration on Wednesday, September 21st. There will be lots of free family fun, activities, refreshments, giveaways, VIP tours and
much more with a 25th theme throughout the day. Families and individuals can join the YMCA on September 21st for just $25 and receive a special 25th Anniversary T-shirt. Come celebrate and reminisce with us as we review the past and look forward to the next 25 years strengthening kids, families and communities.

If you have photos, memorabilia and/or stories to share please contact Roxanne Davis, 281-681-6723 or e-mail rdavis@ymcahouston.org.
