Lost year, we cele- brated the lOOlh birthday of the Y.W.C.A. of Canada, and we have stepped forward info the new ccnfury wilh ihe hope of being oble to face the fasl-moving change of ihe future and lo hold our place in this world of transition and complexities. All across Canada, young people from rural and smaller communities are coming in grealer numbers to urban centres for em- ployment, re (raining and education, and housing continues lo have top priority wilh the Y.W.C.A. Our residence enjoyed a busy year during 1971, with approximately 90% occupancy. We were forlunaie through gen- erous donations to repair and poinf the out- side of ihe building and also lo redecorate and refurnish some of the inlerior. As usual, our residence ha-; been homo for girls of oil races from mony different countries, as well os from all parts of Canada. In 1971, the Y.W.C.A. initiated a special co-operale program for women and girls with the Communily Services Department of ihe City of Lelhbridge, using their facilitiei and our staff and volunteers. This arrange- ment has been successful and is continuing in 1972. For tha third consecutive summer, We were involved, along wilh ihe City of Lethbridge, the Lethbridge Community Col- lege and the Y.M.C.A., in the Communily Summer Program, our dirfici responsibiliiy being the eleven Fun Clubs for children Six to eight. Progncms for special needs, such os Blue Triangles, English classes for New Canadians, Synchronized Swimming and Bridge instruc- tion, are also an important part of the Y.W.C.A. operation. Plans were formulaied for initialing 'Take A Break' groups to be held in city locations. These groups, which include child care, for women who need to gel out of the home and make new friends. No association is an island. We work best when, as a Y.W.C.A., we work with other forces for good in our cammunify.
