2019 YMCA Annual Celebration

Posted on February 20, 2019 by under Events.    

Brian and I have been attending the YMCA Annual Celebrations a few years now. I don’t think I documented each time we’ve attended but I found a blog post from 2017 and also one from 2018.

The event was back at the Andover Farha Sport Center again this year so that was convenient. As usual, they did a great job of decorating and turning the courts into a banquet hall.

I am always so impressed with the volunteer and coach of the year nominees. These folks give so much back to the community in terms of their time, effort, and other resources. There’s always just one winner in each category but it’s a huge honor just to be nominated.

These are some very generous people.

Besides the awards, they always unveil new marketing campaign videos and it’s always fun to see your friends in them. This year we had a Joel sighting.

We also ran into Brandy, who I know from Zumba class and is also the cousin of one of my friends from work.

Speaking of sightings, we also ran into Greg and Karen Perkins. You will remember them from our dinner at Prost back in December. They do shared seating at Prost so, since they had space at their table, we ended up getting seated with them. We had a lovely visit over dinner. We finished at different times but must have had the same idea because, when Brian and I went to the Little Lion Cafe for a bit of dessert after dinner, we ran into them again.

Fast forward to the YMCA Annual Celebration last month when we ran into them again. I joked that we should probably plan on intentionally getting together next time instead of accidentally running into each other at various places.

I’m not sure it’s wise to be exchanging phone numbers and connecting with complete strangers but they seem like a lovely couple. We’ve enjoyed both of our visits with them. Anyway, if they support the YMCA then they must be good people, right? I may be wrong to assume this but that was my assessment.

That’s all for now. Until next time. GNG.
