Honoring All our Military Personnel this Veteran's Day 

Since the Civil War, the Y has provided services to the military, and they continue to support military members and their families. On November 11, Countryside YMCA will give back to veterans by honoring all the men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces at the Veteran’s Day event.

Flags for Heroes 

In honor of heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice, please join us in filling the Countryside YMCA front lawn with flags. We're asking a donation of $5 for each American flag. All proceeds will be used to fund the Veterans Day event and other Veteran programs at the Y. Flags will be displayed in the front lawn for all to see through November 12.
