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 We also are in need of names and addresses of earlier staff, volunteers and members from that time period who are no longer current members so we can reconnect, celebrate and recognize those that are part of the South Montgomery County YMCA foundation and heritage.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.

Academy for Lifelong Learning to Hold Open House on Saturday, August 20

August 3, 2011

The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College-Montgomery, a program for the 50-plus retired or semi-retired community, will host an open house on Saturday, August 20, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in The Commons (Building A). The public is invited, and entertainment and
refreshments will be provided.

The open house is a chance to learn about the new and recurring ALL lectures and classes being offered during the upcoming fall semester, as well as meet some of the class instructors, socialize with other academy members, and register for any lecture or class.

Also at the open house, the Instructor of the Year will be recognized, as well as the new ALL board members.

“We’re excited to kick-off another year of quality instruction and social activities that promote intellectual and personal growth through the ALL
program,” said Donna Smith Burns, LSC-Montgomery’s ALL program manager. “Our medical series is popular this fall, which covers everything from skin cancer and joint replacements to specialized ‘Doc Talks’ at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital. It’s a very informative and interesting series.”

ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars, and discussions geared toward the older, active adult individual interested in remaining “plugged in” to the academic, learning environment. The classes are informal and informational and cover a variety of topics such as art, computer technology, personal growth, languages, history, travel and more.

The $35 annual membership fee opens doors for a full year of social activities and personal growth courses that are free of charge or cost only a minimal rate. The annual membership lasts from September 1 to August 31.

Each of the five colleges within the Lone Star College System offer continuing education for their older, active adults through the ALL organization. Course offerings and program events vary with each campus.

For more information about ALL or to obtain its fall schedule of classes, contact LSC-Montgomery’s continuing education department at (936) 273-7446 or visit www.LoneStar.edu/all-montgomery.
