North Coast Y Service Club celebrating 40 years of fundraising; New members welcome

Were you at the Y Service Club’s Spring Flower and Plant sale?  Remember the abundance of colorful flowers and plants covering the entire north side of the Y?  Besides your garden, do you know who reaps the rewards of this fabulous fundraiser?

The North Coast Y Service Club has been holding this sale annually for more than 20 years and is preparing to celebrate its 40th anniversary at the Grauer School in January, 2013.  Follow the club from past to present as it shares its story of 40 fabulous years of fundraising and fellowship by visiting the club on Facebook at “North Coast Y Service Club.”

The club is proud of its fund-raising efforts and giving more than $750,000 in donations to the Magadalena Ecke YMCA for youth camp programs, remodeling the preschool, pool facility, and rebuilding the skate park. Its volunteer work parties have also been instrumental in adding structural improvements to the Y Aquatic Park, located on the Aqua Hedionda lagoon in Carlsbad, where many a young camper spends their time in the summer.

The involvement of the community is key to the club’s success with nearly 50 active members. The club meets twice monthly at the Ecke YMCA (200 Saxony Road  Encinitas, CA 92024), on the second and fourth Wednesday at 7 p.m.  All are welcome to attend. Its mission is to strive through active service to develop, encourage and provide leadership to build a better world for all.  Join the club at an upcoming meeting and be a part of its next 40 years.
