In support of the YMCA bond

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

I wanted to voice my support for the new YMCA bond that is going before the voters. My family has been a part of the YMCA for a very long time. My children played sports there and now my grandchildren play sports there. The lessons they’ve learned are invaluable, such as teamwork, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

I’m a senior adult and I do activities at the YMCA throughout the week. I see the many children and families that are at the YMCA every day and the impact the programs are having. A new facility will just increase the reach of the Y and impact they can have on our community. The amount of programming that they currently do will only increase with a new facility.

Currently the YMCA is doing so much with so little and I’m excited about the increased effect the YMCA can have on our community. I’m a proud supporter of the Y and hope that you will join me in voting for a new facility that we so desperately need. Please vote for Prop. 2 on May 11.

Bernice Ellis
