Happy New Year!

7213 267th Street NW Stanwood, WA 98292 P 360 629 9622 F 360 572 3426

As all of you already know, we live in an active community that is a great place for kids, families, and seniors and I am proud that our new Stanwood-Camano Y is a partner in creating this environment. It is certainly reassuring to me that so many people have had life-changing experiences with the YMCA and that they continue to view the Y as a necessary component of life here in Snohomish and Island Counties.

STAFF MEMBERS Mary Bredereck, Executive Director P 360 572 3410, E Anne Scott, Senior Director P 360 572 3411, E Craig Chambers, Member Engagement Director P 360 572 3391, E Danelle McGill, Membership Billing P 425 374 5714, E Joey Wolfe, Youth Programs Director P 360 572 3390, E Josh Gottas, Aquatics Director P 360 572 3405, E Ginny Spooner, Member Experience Director P 360 572 3413 E Leah Preston, Volunteer Coordinator P 360 572 3394, E Ricardo Gomez, Membership Coordinator P 360 572 3395, E Ruth Watkins, Active Older Adult Coordinator P 360 572 3412, E Stephanie Krepela, Aquatics Coordinator P 360 572 3405, E Elizabeth Hanna, Teen Programs Lead P 360 572 3401, E Wade Perkins, Youth Sports Lead P 360 572 3400, E Taylor Berghuis, Family Programs Lead P 360 572 3399, E Brenda Casey, Child Watch/Adventure Zone Coordinator P 360 572 3418, E

In my short tenure as Executive Director, it is clear to me that we are impacting a significant number of people in a variety of ways. We opened our doors on September 3rd and in our first month of service we had over 21,000 families, seniors and youth learn to swim, exercise and enjoy family time in our pools, 460 middle school and high school students participate in after school programs developing leadership skills, connecting with mentors, supporting community projects and volunteering, and had over 1,200 babies and toddlers learn social skills, develop motors skills and have the ability to make new friends in our child watch and adventure zone areas. Additionally, we currently have over 800 Silver Sneakers members, which means that our community members over 65 years in age are improving their health, mobility, and having opportunities to engage socially. Having the opportunity to be this type of community hub is exactly what the Y is about: “To inspire, nurture, and strengthen culturally vibrant communities”. I feel so blessed that we can be a part of this type of impact. As YMCA staff, we experience success stories every day and continually look for new ways to reach more people to help them succeed as well. I want to express my sincere thanks to our amazing staff team, the organizing committee, our board of directors and our volunteers who guide and support our efforts, the many donors who helped make our dreams a reality through their financial support, and most importantly, to you, our faithful members, who make the Stanwood-Camano Y the fun and welcoming place that it is! Wishing you all an amazing 2017! In Community,

Mary Bredereck Executive Director

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION NOW IT’S EASIER THAN EVER TO JOIN THE Y! Membership in the Y is a special thing. Be a part of a leading nonprofit organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA of Snohomish County is a membership organization and anyone can join. So, with simple monthly dues, you have no contracts or minimum stays to worry about and no sales pitches to endure. Just quality, healthy programs that your whole family can enjoy.

MEMBERSHIP TYPES FACILITY MEMBERSHIP Get full access to fitness centers at all six YMCAs in Snohomish County with a Facility Membership. Choose from a wide menu of free group exercise classes, enjoy lap and recreational swimming, and receive a free wellness orientation when you join. And as a facility member, you’ll be eligible for priority registration and reduced fees on specialty classes and programs for your whole family. PROGRAM MEMBERSHIP If you’re not already a Y Facility Member and want to participate in programs like summer camps, youth sports, swimming lessons and child care, you’ll need an annual Program Membership. You’ll receive the same great level of quality and caring for which the Y is known, but without access to wellness centers and other amenities offered through a full Facility Membership. COMMUNITY MEMBERSHIP Belonging is a philosophy at the heart of the Y. Everyone in the community is considered a free Community Member and is welcome to participate in key community events and programs such as fun runs, health fairs, and community education. MY Y IS NOW EVERY Y IN WASHINGTON We want to encourage members to use the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to use a Y in a different location when travelling, near a workplace, or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members can use other Y facilities throughout the state. See website for program details. CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP As part of the YMCA’s corporate membership plan, employees will enjoy the benefits of belonging to Snohomish County’s largest and most respected health, wellness, and human service organization. For more information about corporate membership, please contact the Member Services Director. MEMBERSHIP FOR ALL We believe everyone deserves a Y experience, so the YMCA of Snohomish County offers financial assistance to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees. Ask a staff member about financial assistance.

Our child care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other. Each child care location has a dedicated Site Director, with a minimum of 30 college credits in early childhood or elementary education. All of our staff have had previous experience working with children. Staff have attended, and continue to attend, regularly scheduled training events on behavior management, communication skills, and creative activities to do with kids.

In addition, staff and volunteers are thoroughly screened prior to employment and evaluated on a regular basis to ensure continually high performance.

At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. At the Y, school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework.

Prediabetes is a condition in which individuals have blood glucose levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. People with prediabetes are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

If you are at high risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can help you adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles that will help you reduce your chances of developing diabetes.

An estimated one in three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 11% of those with prediabetes know they have it. Prediabetes increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Risk for developing type 2 diabetes may be reduced or eliminated by weight loss, healthier eating, and increased physical activity. Visit our website today to take a quiz to learn if you are at risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Learn more at diabetes.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps those at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight in order to reduce their chances of developing the disease. Research by the National Institutes of Health has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by 58%. PROGRAM GOALS:

Reduce body weight by 7%

Increase physical activity to 150 minutes per week

DETAILS: In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will facilitate a small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes. The year-long program consists of 25 sessions over the course of one year.

The group will meet every week for 16 weeks, followed by three bi-weekly classes, then six months of follow-up with one session per month. WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? In order to qualify for the program, you must be at least18 years old, overweight (BMI > 25)* and at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes indicated by a confirmatory blood value†, prediabetes determined by clinical diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes (GDM) during previous pregnancy, or a qualifying risk score.
