Taylorville Kiwanis Get Tour of Christian County YMCA, Present Annual Check to Support Y Youth Programs

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club got an on-site tour of the Christian County YMCA, as part of their weekly meeting at the Taylorville Moose Lodge on Tuesday.


After the meal and announcements at the Moose Lodge, the Executive Director of the Christian County YMCA, and Kiwanis member Bruce Blanshan, asked members to drive the short distance to the Y where Blanshan gave them a tour of the facility.


During the tour, Blanshan discussed the upgrades to the YMCA since his arrival, including new roof insulation and heating units in the gym area, 24-hour access to the facility, and repainting the pool area.   Blanshan added more upgrades and new offerings are in the works and will be announced in the near future.  


Blanshan told Kiwanis members that there are hundreds of members of the Y not only from Christian County, but from outside the county due to its indoor aquatic center. It’s one of a few such centers at Y’s in Central Illinois.  


At the conclusion of the Christian County YMCA tour during the Kiwanis meeting Tuesday, Kiwanis board member and treasurer Blain Cornwell presented Blanshan with the Club’s annual contribution, continuing the Club’s long-time support of youth activities at the Y.


The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.  For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
