Expansion Project

Message from the board

Restoring Tradition, Building Our Future

Message from the YMCA Board President Patrick Flanigin
For over the past 20 years the Anchorage Community YMCA has been a big part of my life. I’ve seen first hand the many beneficial programs the Y offers for people of all ages.. This community Y really does offer a safe haven for youth and teens. To meet the growing needs of the community the Anchorage Community YMCA is undertaking a major expansion project. We need your support to help make this happen.

Message from the YMCA Board Vice President Mike Abbott
As a YMCA Board Member and Vice President I have the privilege to be a part of an opportunity to significantly impact the Anchorage Community and surrounding areas of the city. The expansion of program space and rebuilding of the locker rooms speaks to the vision and energy exemplified by the board as a whole. This expansion project will be the foundation on which we execute our mission of building strong kids, strong families and a stronger community. Additionally, this will lay the ground work for more possibilities in the near future.
Message from YMCA Board Member Arliss Sturgulewski
As a long time volunteer (some 37 years) for the Anchorage Community YMCA, I cherish this organization.  My own son learned sportsmanship and skills playing Y ball.   My grandsons followed in their dad’s footsteps.  Seniors, young adults and kids of all ages learn fair play and healthy life styles at the Y.  The Y is showing signs of its service to our community and needs a face lift and expansion to continue its wonderful service.
Message from YMCA Property Committee Member Roger Hickel
I’ve been a member and supporter of the Anchorage Community YMCA for over 25 years.  The existing facility has had tremendous use over this period of time and it has served it’s members very well.  The facility is at capacity and it’s showing a lot of wear and tear.  It’s long overdue for an addition and major remodel.  Together we can make this project a reality.

Message from YMCA Property Committee Member Kathe Boucha

The Anchorage Community YMCA is filled with spirit and friendship.  The membership reflects the faces and cultures of the Anchorage area and has flexed and grown with the community. I have served as the Board President since 2002. I am excited about this Capital Campaign so that the Y can assure a safe, healthy and contemporary YMCA facility to continue to meet the needs of our growing membership.
