Be a CHAMPION at the Hobart Y!

Do you have a story to tell about what the Hobart Y means to you and your family?

Do you enjoy planning or attending events, meeting new people, and discussing causes you care about?

If so, please consider joining the Hobart Family YMCA’s Advocacy Champions Committee!

In the coming weeks, we’ll be planning a fun and informative open house event for local lawmakers and other public officials here at our own Hobart Y during the week of August 23 – 29.

We want to share with our elected and appointed officials how important the Y’s services and resources are for our members and our communities. We need your ideas, your creativity, and your passion for the Y to make our event a success!

Members of all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate. Our committee will meet every two weeks for one hour beginning in early July to plan details of the event.

Our open house will be held in conjunction with the Indiana Alliance of YMCAs. Different YMCAs across the state are planning their individual events as part of the Alliance’s biennial Advocacy Week. And we want our open house to be the best!

Spread the word! If you know someone who would make an outstanding advocate for the Hobart Y, please tell them about our Advocacy Champions Committee. We want to talk to them!

To join our Committee, email Hobart YMCA Board Member and Advocacy Champion Christopher Sheid at for information about meeting dates and times.

Or, leave your name, telephone number, and email address with the front desk at the Hobart Y, and Christopher will contact you.

Thank you for all that you do for our Hobart Family YMCA!
