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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
