YMCA Members Give Back

Business owner, Lee Lawrence, and Decatur County School System Superintendent, Tim Cochran, joined the YMCA Board of Directors and CEO, Ken Bailey, for their second workday on May 2nd. 

Lawrence, owner of Lawco Pro Steam, a floor care and restoration business, donated his Saturday morning, experience, and equipment to pressure wash the front of the YMCA. “I enjoy helping our YMCA, this organization has done a lot for my family,” said Lawrence. He also stated that he and his kids have enjoyed the facilities for years. 

Cochran and his youngest son, Stetson, brought their mowers and mowed the YMCA sports fields. As active members of the Y, the Cochran family have long been supporters and partners in the Y’s growth and success. 

Claire Webb, who leads the Buildings and Grounds Committee, organized the second beautification effort. Incorporating social distancing and other health precautions, the Y will host monthly workdays such as this one that are aimed at maintaining and improving the property’s natural beauty and landscape.

“I’m overwhelmed with the support we have received over the last week. It’s exciting to live in a community that supports their YMCA,” stated Bridget Harrell, President of the YMCA Board of Directors.

The Y opened its doors to the public Monday, May 4th, subject to certain restrictions. Please contact the Y for more information.
