Thanks, Westfield YWCA, for a great experience

Dear Editor,

In mid-March the YWCA Board of Directors made the decision to eliminate the position of Executive Director for the agency. This essentially ended my employment with the agency but in looking back I want to thank the community and the YWCA family for making my last 6 years most enjoyable. The community is truly supportive of the YWCA and was very welcoming to me - members stopped into the agency to say hello, our community partners - the village, the library, the school and the hospital - just to name a few were willing to engage and help with programming. Each time the YWCA needed repairs, maintenance or work done on the facility, there were people willing and able to help.

All of the events organized and promoted by the YWCA were well received and attended.

I realize that an agency often takes on the personality of the executive director and the ED becomes the face of the agency but I hope the members of the YWCA and it's community partners will look beyond individuals continue their legacy of support to the YWCA of Westfield.

For over 125 years area residents have supported the YWCA and it's my hope this will continue for another 100+ years.

Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Katie Smith
