YMCA Stories

At the YMCA everyone as a story!  In 2014 we began an effort to collect and share those stories.  We collected so many we have a whole website dedicated to them!

Featured Story of the Month

"The Reidsville Y is like a second home to our family. We’ve been coming since our 9 year old was 6 months old, so our children have actually grown up there. The pool is high on our list for things we like about the Y. All 3 kids have taken swim lessons, my wife has taken advantage of aquatics classes, and I am one of the “regulars” in the lap lanes. I don’t mind sharing a lane with someone because I might have to ask for the favor another time. In November 2009 when I had open heart surgery in Greensboro it meant so much to have one of the Reidsville YMCA employees come visit with my family while I was in surgery. Such acts of kindness knit together the Reidsville Y members and staff with the larger community of Reidsville and the surrounding area." -Vernon Family
