I hope you enjoy hearing from them as much as I did!

    Great tie, Scott!
    It speaks to YMCA Canada’s commitment towards our Agreement with the Assembly of First Nations People of Canada. I am proud of YMCA Canada for taking on a leadership role in strengthening the foundations of our First Nations communities in Canada.
    I hope you had a wonderful NAYDO Conference 2011!

    I also attended NAYDO – it was so inspiring and can’t wait for 2012!
