The North Central Region is made up of twenty-five clubs with a total membership of 442.
The North Central Region did not put on a Regional Convention this year as everyone was quite busy preparing and putting on the US / Canadian Area Convention. That event being over the clubs have returned to their regular meeting and activities.
Again the dues collection comes with the fall start up and building our club membership. Our region is no different from anyone else. We all need a plan to address this issue. If you were at the US Area/Canadian Convention you’ll know what to
do. We as Y’s men have 78 years of success stories to tell. We just need to capitalize on our strength.
This winter we look forward to helping the Sioux Falls, SD club celebrate their 50th Anniversary on 09 February 2002.
Congratulations go out to Matt Barnes of the Mankato Y’s Men Club for providing funding for children’s programs in the greater Mankato, MN area. Primary beneficiaries include the YMCA Summer Camp Scholarship Fund and the YMCA Capital Improvement Fund. For Matt and the clubs efforts they were recognized financially by the Prudential Insurance Company of America by receiving the Prudential Community Champions Rising Star Award for volunteer service through the Y’s Men’s Club.
