We made the front cover of the Halifax Citizen for September 11!

Our Community YMCA End of Summer BBQ was a huge success! Music and laughter could be heard around the block on Thursday, August 30th 2018 as friends and neighbours gathered together to celebrate the closing of another great summer in Halifax’s North End.

The BBQ kicked off with Cheese Curds Gourmet Burgers & Poutinerie serving up a delicious selection of gourmet poutine and jumbo hot dogs for the roughly 160 people in attendance. Everyone had lots of fun playing at the bounce castle, completing the obstacle course, getting creative with face paint and striking a pose in our photo booth! A shout out to @Base Entertainment for providing jams that kept everyone dancing until the very end.

Our new Director of the Community YMCA, Irvine Carvery

We heard from TL Johannesson, Child & Youth Manager and new Community YMCA Director, Irvine Carvery about what we can look forward to at the Community Y, like some fantastic new Fall programming. Be sure to check out the new schedule on our website. Mix 96.5 dropped by to say hello and donate Oasis juice boxes for the crowd and had a special visit from District 8 Councillor, Lindell Smith and his family.

As the festivities winded down with the setting sun, people slowly made their way home with their spirits high and bellies full. Thank you to our volunteers and to everyone who came out to make this such a wonderful event!
