NORWICH — On Wednesday, February 1, 2023, the Norwich Family YMCA conducted the 135th Annual Meeting of the Norwich YMCA organization at the Canasawacta Country Club.

During the annual dinner, the Y recognizes outgoing board members while highlighting the work of the Y and celebrating some of the many volunteers who support the day to day work of the Y.

A volunteer is a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking, a person who performs a service willingly and without pay. Volunteers created the YMCA Movement in London, England 177 years ago and volunteers created the Norwich YMCA 160 years ago. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and our community. Volunteers are our heroes.
