A Message From Our President
When I joined the Y’s Men in August 2009 it was because my Y’s Men friends in Lansdowne, where I live, told me all the great things they do, the trips that they take and the friendships they have made.
After joining I found out that the Y’s Men completely changed my lifestyle. Retirement can be great, but only if your days are filled with good times and good friends who fulfill your life with joy and camaraderie.
All the men I talk to in the Y’s Men tell me how the group has made their lives fuller and has allowed their days to be fun filled and interesting.
If you join the Y’s Men the most important thing to do is to join the clubs, the community activities and the interesting trips that are arranged by the Trips and Events Committee. Go out to restaurants with fellow members and their significant others and take part in every Committee you feel would interest you.
Good luck to all you new and old members. Joining the Y’s men is absolutely the best thing you did for your retirement.
