The first meeting of 2017 took place on March 15th at the Saratoga restaurant. We had a great turnout and three great presentations!
- Member Kent Harris advocated on behalf of the Vigo County Historical Society
- Member Thomas Foster advocated on behalf of the YMCA for the Summer Camp program
- Member Linc Hobbs introduced guest David Wright who advocated for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Ultimately, the members voted to fund the YMCA in support of the Summer Camp program for the first grant of 2017!
If you advocated but didn’t win, don’t be discouraged, come back and try again! One of the changes in the group this year is that a member may bring in a non-member to present for an organization! Use their passion for their cause as a selling point for the crowd.
If you have not yet renewed, it’s easy to do! Fill out the form online here. The more members we have, the bigger impact we can make in our community. Join us at the next meeting on June 21st at the Saratoga.
If you have not yet done so, please submit your contribution for the YMCA. Checks should be made payable to YMCA and mailed to 200 South 8th Street, Terre Haute, IN 47807.

Watch your email for updates regarding the check presentation, we would love for you to be a part of it!
- Don’t forget to ask your friends if they have renewed their membership yet, the more money we can get for the endowment, the YMCA, and the upcoming pledges, the more we can do for our community!
