Marshall Rotary Club President Wicky Sleight presents a $1,000 check to Salt Fork YMCA CEO Kirk Alexander during a Rotary Club meeting Thursday, May 4. The donation will benefit the Y’s Annual Campaign to support those individuals who cannot afford to purchase a membership on their own.
“We, on average, have about 10 percent of our total membership base that comes to us through the financial assistance program,” Alexander said.
In appreciation of the donation, the Y will display a banner in its gym showcasing the Rotary organization. It is the first and only civic club to have a banner displayed in the Salt Fork Y.
