Gazette Thank You Letter for Jan. 17

To YMCA sponsors

The New Year's Eve Rockin' Lock-in was a huge success for the Wardle Family YMCA in Port Royal. More than 50 children ages 6 to 13 enjoyed fun and games throughout the night and even rang in 2011 watching television on the treadmills in the fitness room.

This event was made possible through generous donations from our community sponsors. A delicious assortment of food was graciously donated by Papa John's Pizza, Taco Bell, Pizza Inn, Coca-Cola, Carolina Wings, Palm & Moon Bagel Co., Lady's Island McDonald's and Golden Corral.

Kaylin Caron, child care director at Wardle, expects next year to be an even bigger success. The children loved the games, swimming and food.

New YMCA members are always welcome. Details: 843-522-9622
