More than 1300 girls competed at the YMCA Gymnastics National Meet June 29-July 1, 2012, at Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Among them were several members of the JOYS gymnastics team from South Bend.

Alexis Mitschelen finished 10 in the Level 8 All-Around finals with 70.225 points. She placed third in her Floor Exercise (9.08), fourth in Uneven Parallel Bars (8.65), fifth on the Beam (9.45) and fifth in Vault (8.7).


A heat advisory has been issued for St Joseph County for June 28. The National Weather Service says temperatures will continue to rise into the mid-90s Thursday. They advise that we all take extra precautions when working our spending time outdoors. Try to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.

A good idea would be to review the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, wear light weight and loose-fitting clothing if possible, and drink plenty of WATER.


Proudly announcing the upcoming 3-for-3 Triathlon, set for August 26 in South Bend, are the Center for the Homeless, YMCA OF MICHIANA, INC. and the Alcohol & Addictions Resource Center. These three agencies are joining forces to create what is sure to be the highlight of the summer season.

The 3-for-3 triathlon will include the three traditional segments (swim, bike and run), but with a twist. For those who do not consider themselves swimmers or are looking for an new challenge, the option is offered to substitute a kayak for that leg of the race.

MICHIANA FAMILY YMCA is offering a free 8-week training program for registered participants, beginning this week.


The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
