Hello Y

This week, I visited the YMCA  on Huntington Avenue in Boston.  It must have been a great economic time in that decade because there are so many landmark projects and organizations which had beginnings in 1912 (not counting the Titanic). Some things I learned and you all should know:  the YMCA on Huntington has its 100th birthday this year, it was the very first Y in the country and  Northeastern University was started right there at that Y.    Because I love both kids and education, my favorite fact is that the YMCAs of Greater Boston are  the largest provider of after school programs in New England.   Here is a picture of some of my new friends at the teen center.  Thank you guys for letting me post this picture- I think my cool factor just went up by 100 percent. I also visited other kids including little kindergarteners who let me interrupt their story and who treated me like a superstar.  There were kids of all ages who come to the Y every day to learn, do homework, make friends and do fun things in a safe place.  My family at the Red Sox want to team up with the Y to support their new  after school initiative  with Boston Public Schools…hope some of my friends I met will write in to support this partnership- the YMCA has a HUGE family.

thanks for being here,

Fenway the Dog
