Thank You, Board Member Christy Jarka

After nearly a decade of superb volunteer leadership, Christy Jarka’s tenure on the Duneland Family YMCA Board of Directors will come to an end.  Christy has been an extremely active member of the Board of Directors, serving on the Dancing Like the Stars committee, providing significant leadership with the Annual Support Campaign, and always sharing her passion for all things that are good for children. 

 Most recently, Christy and her husband John co-chaired the 2019 Annual Support Campaign which raised in excess of $105,000 for YMCA program and membership subsidy.  Christy’s board tenure is ending at the end of the month, but she has already volunteered to stay active with the Y and serve on the Forchetti Center Advisory Committee.  Thank you Christy for your willingness to serve the community and enhance the quality of life for all involved! 

Thank you, Christy!
