YMCA Update
by Annie Marlatt


1999 is off to a great start for the Seeley-Swan YMCA Outreach. We are so fortunate to have the talented instructors living in our area that we do, enabling us to offer quality programs to the community. It's exciting to see talented people bringing out talent in the children.

Feather Sherman is doing just that with the Awesome Art classes. The Swan Valley session for K-3rd graders was a success and the session for 4th-8th graders will begin on Tuesday, February 23rd. (This is a change to the posted dates, due to a parent/student basketball game on February 16th). We plan on running a session for Seeley Lake 6th-8th graders between sports seasons.

Activities for kids were held at the Tamaracks during Winterfest. It was fun for all involved and we plan on making it a yearly event in conjunction with Winterfest. We appreciate the hospitality of the Tamaracks, the help of Diane's Buses and the "helpers." Thanks to all of you.

February 1st was the start of a new session of Walk Fit and our first Tae Bo class. Tae Bo is a combination of Taw Kwan Do, aerobics and kick boxing. It is less dancy than step aerobics and easier to catch on to, but still offers a great workout. Instructor Terryl Bartlett is another talented individual and makes the workout fun, yet challenging. The turnout was great and the participants were enthused. Come and see what it's all about. Your first adult fitness class is free.

Third and fourth grade basketball will begin on Wednesday, February 17th at 4:30 p.m. at the Seeley-Swan High School main gym. Another local talent, Bill Baier, will be leading that group in learning and improving their hoop skills. The program will run six weeks, meeting Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The advisory board of the Seeley-Swan YMCA Outreach will be meeting with the Missoula Family YMCA directors on February 16th for a long range planning session. Once again, we are fortunate to have local talent volunteering to help us out on the board. We always welcome comments from our community, so feel free to let us know what you would like to see in the future. Thanks to the entire community for all of your help!
