To All Our Veterans,

This weekend is a very important one in which we, as a nation, recognize those who have served our country in order to ensure our way of life. In honor of our Veterans, the GPYMCA initiated a Veterans Program in which many corporate sponsors donated funds to sustain an annual membership for families of Vets in need.

Although many take freedom for granted, I wanted to ask you to pause for a brief moment this weekend and reflect on the selfless service of those connected to the Y and outside. When you see a Veteran, take the time to acknowledge and thank him or her for their service.

On behalf of the YMCA of Greater Providence, your commitment to our great nation is to be recognized and celebrated. THANK YOU! Remember, “All gave some, some gave all!”

Sincerely, Steven G. O’Donnell
