Woodson YMCA Annual Report 2022
Dear Y Friends,
We are proud to present you The Woodson YMCA’s 2022 Annual Report. 2022 was a year of amazing growth for our organization. We fully recovered from the pandemic and have now reached new all-time highs in membership. In the process, we’ve made an impact on thousands of lives in our community.
Our membership growth was led by our 55+ Members who make up 48% of our membership base. The Landing has played a major role
in our 55+ population growth at the Y. It has provided a special place
for Members to connect and live their best life. If you have not visited
The Landing to see the special place it is, we encourage you to do so.
Our Child Care Centers continue to serve families and are very full with large waiting lists. We are actively working on trying to expand our reach outside of our walls to help meet this glaring need in our community for additional child care. This is our top priority in 2023!
At a time in our country when there is a major lifeguard shortage, we have defied this trend and been able to recruit, train, hire and effectively run numerous pools in our community. During 2022, we not only operated the four pools located in our YMCA Branches but also the Mosinee Aquatic Center, the Weston Aquatic Center and the Rothschild/Schofield Aquatic Center. This helped our communities to safely enjoy local aquatic facilities and their area pools are safer when YMCA Lifeguards are on duty.
With our increase in membership we have seen tremendous growth in swimming, gymnastics, competitive teams, youth sports, camp and many other youth and family programs. We have never served more youth in our organization than this past year.
We are proud of what The Woodson YMCA does for our community and the number of lives we impact. It could not have happened without our outstanding staff and volunteers who make The Woodson YMCA the special place it is for our community.
Enjoy the Annual Report and thank you for your support of our Y!
Yours in Service,
Bryan Bailey – President & CEO
