Volunteer

Y's Service Club

In 1971 the Y's Men of the Spencer Family YMCA bought 8 ice cream stands..today the Y's Service Club have increased their stands to 13. So almost any direction that you go at the Fair you can have a Clay County Fair favorite - a nutty bar or two or three or...

Locations range from the east gate to the west gate to under the Grandstand, in the Commercial building, in the Ag. building to the Varied Industries building. The stands can be recognized by the YMCA logo & Nutty Bar painted on the front.

Products at the stands include pop, water, popcorn, and of course our famous nutty bars. Contact Josh Kelly to sign up to work a stand. 

Over 400 volunteers head up the Y's Service Club stands under the supervision of 70 Y's Service Club Members. Many of you know the great work that has been done by the Y's Service Club, in behalf of the Spencer Family YMCA. Y's Service Club funds have been used to purchase equipment, finance construction and fund many programs.

Meetings are held once a month with a winter fundraiser. Our pancake breakfast is held Superbowl Sunday.

If you or your family would be interested in helping the Y's Service Club working a four hour shift or two, please contact Josh Kelly at (712) 262-3782 or at jkelly@spencerymca.org

Coaching

The Youth Sports Leagues (Basketball & Flag Football) relies on parent volunteer coaches for a successful program. Coaching is a very rewarding and fun experience for you. As a coach, you'll have the opportunity to make a positive impact in a child's life and in your community. Volunteerism is an insurmountable part of the YMCA and coaching is at the root of it.

The Y will provide you with all the resources you will need to effectively lead a young team through a successful season. Coaching only requires a couple hours a week of your time. One hour for a practice that we work into your schedule and an hour for a game.

Please, consider coaching for the Youth Sports Leagues. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer youth coach, please contact Megan Whitaker at mwhitaker@spencerymca.org or (712) 262-3782.
