Dear residents of Fort McMurray,
Effective November 4, 2020 the Westwood Family YMCA Centre has permanently closed after having served the Wood Buffalo community for over 34 years.
The Westwood Family YMCA was more than just a fitness centre or a swimming pool.
It was a true community centre (that we desperately need more of) with great programs for kids and adults, a place where people socialized and interacted while having everything they needed handy: a daycare, sports and recreational facilities, interest groups and so much more. Not having this option in the Thickwood area, for the youth to go, seniors to go and families to go will be detrimental to many.
One of the programs the Westwood YMCA hosted was the Adult Day Program. There were many benefits to the community from this program and I know one senior in a wheelchair would go to interact with other seniors or just to take a shower because they had stairs in their home and couldn't access the shower at home. This is just one of many stories I hear.
We know and understand the economy is bad, businesses and organizations are closing but if YMCA is not able to sustain this community centre financially, our community should find a way! They need help to ride out this storm and the community needs these services more than ever. We only have a few community places to go to in this town to sacrifice another one!
Please sign this petition to bring to the attention of our local authorities that the Westwood Community Centre needs their support and should re-open.
Thank you for your care and support! Together we can!
