YMCA honors Cupp, Klene at annual meeting

New board members welcomed

Greensburg — The Decatur County Family YMCA Board of Directors held their annual meeting Thursday, March 14.

Approximately 60 people attended the meeting.

Dr. Bob Cupp, 2012 Board of Director’s President, welcomed attendees. The YMCA Preschool students led the invocation. Dr. Cupp introduced North Decatur Choir Director, Mr. Dan Borns. Borns then introduced three girls from the choir who each sang a solo.

Dr. Cupp then reviewed several accomplishments of the past year. Highlights shared included a report of 552 children from six different schools and five different communities participating in the Afternoon ROCKS program.

The Invest in Youth Campaign support enabled the Y to award $65,205.00 in scholarship funding that provided 134 memberships and program 54 scholarships for child care. The Summer Feeding Program served 7,967 meals. A new Sprint Triathlon was held at Lake Santee with 60 participants. Also the Y continued to have a balanced budget with fund reserves. This also enabled the Y to tile the facility hallway.

YMCA Member and local pastor, Doug Preston was the testimonial speaker and shared his personal experiences with losing over 100 pounds and improved outlook for future retirement activities, some of the positive benefits he has experienced at the YMCA.

YMCA CEO, Diane Hart-Dawson recognized out-going board member, Becky Bohman, Archie Brown, Ed Fox, Bryan Robbins and Lora Williams for their service. Diane shared some of the talents and support each had given the Y. Special recognition was given to Lora Williams for her two previous years of service as board president and her participation and leadership with National Advocacy events. Hart-Dawson also recognized the service of outgoing board president, Dr. Bob Cupp, citing his strong leadership to strategic planning to help the Y moved forward and continue to be successful. She stated that his commitment to meeting preparation and volunteerism was outstanding.

New Board Chair, Steve Freeman, was introduced and he outlined 2013 goals including the planning for the Y’s 100th Anniversary. Focus groups will be formed to plan the activities. Steve reported that the Burn the Mortgage Campaign has raised a total of $323,236 in pledges.

He also stated board member participation is 100 percent with $85,425 contributed.

Steve discussed the Y’s focus to work on childhood obesity with the Recharge Program, a program collaboration with the Greensburg Elementary School and Decatur County Memorial Hospital.

This grant funded after-school program focuses on four areas: energy in, energy out, team work and goal setting. Lastly, he introduced and welcomed new board members Marc Coplon, Doug Preston, Angie Reynolds, Rachel Sullivan and Chris Stephen.

Diane Hart-Dawson then announced special recognition awards. 2012 Volunteer of the Year honors were awarded to out-going board president, Dr. Bob Cupp for his many hours of service and dedication to the Y.  Next, the 2012 Employee of the Year award was presented to Amy Klene, an employee for the past seven years, for her leadership of Y Special Event Programs such as the Halloween Carnival, Healthy Kids Day and Tree City Run. Amy was also credited for the success of the first Sprint Outdoor Triathlon that was held at Lake Santee.
