'Name the Y' Contest Underway

The Olean-Bradford Area YMCA has a new partner, so now the organization needs a new name – and they want you to help choose it.

The Y has reached out into the Wellsville community and wants to create a new association name that best describes the growing operation – and one that’s easy to remember, too.

The “Name the Y” Contest is open to anyone, and suggestions can be mailed to, or you can go to any of the Ys and write your suggestion on a clipboard provided at the front desk. Suggestions will be accepted until September 30, and the winner will be announced through email, the Y websites and Facebook.

While the new organization will have a new corporate name, the Olean YMCA, Bradford YMCA and Wellsville YMCA will keep their individual names.

The prize for the winning of the naming contest? Bragging rights, of course.
