GREEN — On Aug. 13, more than 80 city, county, state and federal officials, along with regional YMCA CEOs and senior executives representing Summit, Medina, Stark, Portage and Wayne counties, gathered at YMCA Camp Y-Noah for the second biennial Regional YMCA Legislative Breakfast.

Officials heard about the impact the YMCA is making on communities it serves.

Shown above, from left, at the breakfast event are: Akron Area YMCA President and CEO Doug Kohl, Summit County Executive Russ Pry, state Rep. Anthony DeVitis (R-District 37) and YMCA Camp Y-Noah Executive Director Mike Ohl.

 “YMCAs are uniquely positioned to bring about meaningful, lasting change to the communities we serve,” said Jeff Kline, first vice-chair of the Akron Area YMCA Board of Trustees. “Ys across the U.S. identify and meet the community’s most pressing needs in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Regional YMCA Legislative breakfast provides an opportunity for leaders to hear first-hand the impact of the Y as a charitable organization strengthening the communities we serve.”
