GORDON COLLEDGE ANNUAL DINNER MEETING WED., FEB. 28th - 7 p.m. SVEN ERICKSEN'S FAMILY RESTAURANT MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE GUEST SPEAKER Mr. Gordon Colledge INFORMATION OFFICER LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE Tickets at the Door $2.75 each Members and Friends Welcome! 1972 PRESIDENT'S REPORT MRS. ALLISTER FINDLAY PRESIDENT It is my honor to present the annual report of the You,ng Women's Christian Association of Lethbridge for 1972. This association has the unique distinction of being concerned primarily with special needs of. women and girls, and if is towards this goal we endeovour, with your help, to channel our efforts and establish our priorities. Housing is a special concern for the Y.W.C.A. and we were very happy to be able to give the interior of our building a "new look" in 1972 -through the he!p of the Lethbridge Community College and also many generous donations from Clubs, friends and benefactors. However, the rate of occupancy last year was 70%, a decrease from the previous year. This causes much concern and a study to correct this is now under way. An increasing number of girls in residence have special needs, and we are looking for ways to provide more opportunities to help'them become more independent, for instance, discussion groups held regularly and attended by a counsellor. Presently most of our residents are young students subsidized by various government departments. Again in 1972 we worked in co-operation with the Community Services Department of the City of Lethbridge in the area of programming. We were able to expand a number of programs, and activities included keep fit classes, swimming instruction, as well as recreational swimming, Mom and Me Swim, junior gymnastics, badminton, mixed volleyball, yoga, and "Tiny Tots" creative movement. In our own "Y" programs, three groups of Take a Break were initiated in various areas of the city filling a special need for women with small children were expanded and evening classes in English for new Canadians. Continuation programs with Mental Health and Golden Mile, also synchronized swimming, teen programs, Blue Triangle groups and guitar instruction are a most worth while part of our physical and educational activities. It is interesting to note that total participation in the Co-op program was 20,372, with 21 part-time instructors and 5 volunteers, and in the "Y" programs 8,228 participants, �43 volunteer staff and 3 part time staff with honorariums. During the summer months, we were part of the Community Summer Program with the City Community Services Department and the Lethbridge Community College, our special responsibility being fun clubs and playground special events. We are most grateful to the many part time staff and volunteers who so capably plan and instruct our programs. The Public Relations Committee work in close co-operation with Program Committee, and are at present assembling an audio-visual presentation to be shown to clubs and groups in the foil. In August, we were very fortunate to procure the services of Miss Jeanna Bafy as our Executive Director. Miss Baty is young and comes to us with a considerable background of Y.W.C.A. experience. We have already gained much from her administrative expertise and know-ledge. Miss Jean Boon wos employed as Program Assistant last year and we are grateful to these two dedicated young women on our staff. I would be remiss if I did not say thank you In a very special way to our partners; the Community Services Department of the City of Lethbridge, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Golden Mile Club, Lethbridge Family Services and the Committee on Life-long Education, as well as the Lethbridge Community Chest with whom we experience a most co-operative relationship. Thanks too, for their constant and generous coverage, to all the news media; The Lethbridge Herald, radio and television stations because it is through their efforts we are able to reach many of the women and girls we are committed to help. As President of the Y.W.C.A. of Lethbridge, I have been greatly privileged to have the support and cooperation of loyal administrative volunteers, committee members, staff and volunteers. A special thank you to Mrs. Catherine Cicon and Mrs. Ruth Slobodian who left our employ during the summer and to all who have given so unselfishly of their time and talents to a cause which I know in our hearts we all believe worthwhile. A sincere "thank you". Respectfully submitted, Mrs. Allister Findlay President. Y.W.C.A. BOARD of DIRECTORS PRESIDENT - Mrs. Allister Findlay SECRETARY - Mrs. Dwight Jensen VICE PRESIDENTS - Mrs. F.
