Friday Morning at the YWCA of Asheville

27 Jun

It’s not even lunchtime on a Friday here at the YWCA, but we’ve already been busy!

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve had going on in our building at 185 S. French Broad Ave this morning.

Charley’s Pump class was packed at 8:15 am. Word must have spread that this class is fun, action packed, and really kicks off your morning.

Really exciting for us: we had three staff members working out alongside Charley! From left to right: Pearl (Housekeeping), Charley (Club W Coordinator), Victoria (Guest Services), and Pamela (Membership Coordinator).

Inside the gym we’d like to introduce our new Fitness Associate, Ben. He just graduated from Warren Wilson, and is here to help our Club W members with all of their fitness needs! Please say hello and introduce yourself the next time you see him.

Upstairs in the administrative offices Coryn (Grants Coordinator) and Holly (MotherLove Coordinator) are meeting to discuss funding opportunities for the MotherLove program.

And Adrienne (Communications Specialist) Pam (Director of Advancement) and Jewel (Development Coordinator) discovered that they are all wearing their Stand Against Racism t-shirts.



Two players from The Asheville Tourists came and visited with our Summer Camp kids and answered questions about what kinds of snacks the team eats, how many strikes they typically have in a game, and how they came to be baseball players. They then led the kids (and staff) in a Tourists-style warmup!
