We have been members of the Westfield Area Y since 2011.  The kids participate in swim lessons and camp.  They love to come to Kids Club while I work out.  Sometimes I swim and practice yoga.  I encouraged my mother to join for the water exercise and social activities, and now she gives back as a volunteer.

But where we really come together as a family at the Y is through Tae Kwon Do.  It’s about both physical and personal development … and most importantly, we LOVE IT!

I’m excited about my commitment and progress in this martial art, and I am even prouder of the skills and confidence I see in my boys.  My husband is our cheering section! The Y is about the well-being of our family in many ways.  It helps us develop as individuals and it strengthens our family ties as well as ties to our community.  There is so much to the Y!
