Ribbon Cutting 2014 Caroline County Family YMCA

Ten years ago, Barney Reiley, CEO of the Rappahannock Family YMCA group, met with the Caroline County supervisors with the expectations of developing a new YMCA facility in Caroline County. Today’s ribbon cutting was the pinnacle of that first meeting.

In a ceremony in the new Y’s gymnasium, over 150 guests, charter members, Y executives, county executives and special guest, Sen. Mark Warner, oohed and aahed over the facility and all that it has to offer.

Mr. Reiley spoke of his determination to get the Caroline Y a reality, not just an idea. A Caroline county supervisor spoke of skepticism he had along with his fellow board members on how the Y would benefit Caroline County residents. The answer is clear. A family oriented facility that will work with the community, all the community to make better citizens, be it more healthy, more engaged in activities, a safe place for teens to “hang out,” and incorporate an open door policy so no one is turned away.

Bingo! The Caroline County Family Y fits the bill. Activities for young and all, community partnerships with the government, schools and businesses, a helping hand to those in need and an atmosphere of fun, health and family.

Sen. Warner’s remarks were a deviation of his prepared speech. On his way to Caroline, he stopped in Fredericksburg to visit with the schoolmates of a young boy who has been fighting a severe cancer, and also fighting with the pharmaceutical company to get a new medicine. Warner commented that a community can come together and fight for the rights of others, and can work together to succeed in a project. As a former YMCA Board member in DC, and a current Y member now, Sen. Warner said he knows how the Y works. It is a family of the community. Young and old, fit and unfit, just like the family we all know.

The new Y in Caroline has fitness equipment for every level of ability, and a qualified, friendly staff eager to lend a helping hand. There is a regulation size pool, which will give Caroline High School their first opportunity to develop a competitive swim team. There is also a therapy pool, with warm temperatures for those with achy joints!

Located just off Route 1 in Ladysmith, the Caroline Family Y is easy to get to. Family oriented, the new facility and organization will be an asset to Caroline County and its residents, just like the KG Family Y is to King George. (Now, we have to see about getting a therapy pool in King George!)
