During the fall, Senator Tom Carper made a few special visits to different YMCA branches throughout the Association.
In October, Senator Carper spent some time with staff and members at the Dover Y. In addition to going on a tour to see the latest renovations at the branch, he spent time learning about the recently installed adaptive fitness equipment as well as the good work being done by the lifeguards and the coaches in the Diabetes Prevention Program.
On Veteran’s Day, Senator Carper stopped by the Central YMCA to have lunch with some of the residents who are also Veterans. The Central Y is the largest housing provider for Veteran’s in the state of Delaware.
“Veterans deserve not only our appreciation for their service, but also our commitment to taking care of them long after they return to civilian life.”
