Are you sure your community has enough people to support a YMCA, is you couldn't even support a skating rink?
Well, I would suggest going to council meetings and talking to those who are the wheels of the local government.
Our community dont have much of anything close by for our youth. The closest gym facilty is more than 10 miles away. It would be nice to have a ymca in the area for the young and old.
