“Gary has played a large roll in connecting with our community and has donated his time to insure that our Laguna Niguel YMCA maintains its image that we all so proudly treasure.”
-Jimmy Lessard, Laguna Niguel Family YMCA
One can’t help but feel a strong sense of community and connectedness throughout my branch. We feel like a family and we do what we can to help each other, and that is directly attributed to the tone and example set by our outstanding executive leadership and staff who are genuinely caring, conscientious and committed to all aspects of its success. My admiration and respect for this well functioning branch team and support staff continues to grow. From the branch’s executive director to the summer intern, irrespective of their titles, each pitches in to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Volunteering at my Y is a labor of love. I find it personally rewarding to be of service to others when the people I am helping care so deeply, work so hard, and at times unselfishly suffer personal sacrifices to make our Y so wonderful. This is my way of giving back and saying thank you.
