This November 23 will mark 10 years that we have been in the current YMCA facility. It seems not that long ago when we embarked on a capital campaign to raise the funds to build a facility that would meet the needs of our service area. Since we've been in the "new" full facility, the staff of the YMCA continues to strive to offer high quality programs and classes that are available to all segments of our services area. Be it dance, soccer, flag football, gymnastics, basketball, fitness classes, iddy biddy sports, walking on the track or programs for children with special needs, our objective is to focus on including the four character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in every program and service that the YMCA offers.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, in the spirit of the season, we wish you all the joys that the Thanksgiving and Christmas season brings and the hopes for a joyous New Year. The YMCA is open to everyone who wants to better their lives. Thank you for being a part of the North Central Missouri YMCA family and for your support in helping the staff and board continue to write the story of the YMCA in our service area.

Annual Benefit Auction & Spaghetti Dinner
Mark you calendars for
November 15 for the YMCA's annual Benefit Auction and Spaghetti Dinner!
Be sure and come to the dinner and have some of our delicious spaghetti, homemade by a couple of our own members who happen to be terrific cooks! The silent auction will have many beautiful theme baskets, Christmas decorations, home furnishings, and gift certificates from all of our area merchants. Live auction will have sports memorabilia, tickets to MU basketball games, and possibly KC Chief tickets. The Humane Society will have a couple of dogs to bid on (what a great way to help the Y and the Humane Society at the same time)! We will have Lego baskets and LaLaloospy baskets (think Christmas presents)! This will be our 16th Auction, and they just keep getting better. If you have never been, make sure and attend this one.
Lots of fun and a great way to support your YMCA!
TIPS ON HOW TO STICK TO YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE:
Exercise in the morning. This way you won't have to much time to think about NOT working out.
Exercise to Music. An upbeat play list keeps you motivated.
Find a workout you love. This way you will look forward to your workout.
Schedule time for daily exercise. Don't make exercise a choice, but part of your day (like brushing your teeth).
Eliminate stress. Exercise is one of the most effective stress relievers.
If you only have time to do one thing for yourself, make it a daily workout.
Why do so many people feel like they belong at the Y? Because no other single membership provides so many ways to exercise both body and mind. Connect with yourself, family, and friends in a healthy way with a YMCA membership. From fitness programs to after school child care to youth sports to community volunteerism, your membership goes a long way to make a difference every day.
Whether your life is focused on shaping up, studying up, meeting up, or growing up, it all begins with signing up at the Y!! A Y membership is a great opportunity to make progress in your own way and move your life upwards and onwards. Realize the power within you and the power of a Y membership. The Y builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities. You DO belong at the Y!!

Partners with Youth
