Father of the Year
Congratulations Miles Humphries for being named the Plano Family YMCA's Father of the Year! Humphries exemplifies the best of the YMCA's character values: caring, respect, and responsibility. He is the father of five daughters, all of whom have participated in the YMCA's Adventure Guide Program. Along with serving as a volunteer at his church, Humphries has participated in a total of nine Christmas parades where he has provided and built numerous floats.
The Adventure Guides recently spent the weekend at Sky Ranch in Van, TX. The Dynamite Dudes tribe was among those who helped deliver relief supplies to the First Assembly Church of God for families affected by the tornado. Adventure Guide Dads helped gather diapers, water, food, clean linens and cash donations.
The Plano Family YMCA recently held its preschool graduation. The graduation was attended by 35 families.
