    Event Description:
    TIME TO LOOSEN YOUR TIE JOIN US FOR ESPANOLA'S #1 NETWORKING EVENT Espanola Chamber of Commerce is showcasing the amazing work happening at our YMCA - Teen Center. The YMCA - Teen Center is a non-profit that is focused on keeping our teens off the streets and off drug or other hurtful activities. Teens come together to play, learn, study, create, innovate and aspire to be the best they can be. Oh and did I mention these teens are making robots and about to head around the world to represent the Española Valley in China and they need our help. Please bring your donation dollars and let's help these great thinkers travel the world and bring back that experience so we may thrive. The Family YMCA was founded by volunteers in 1955 in Los Alamos. At that time, Los Alamos was a “closed” community due to the top secret work of the National Laboratory, and the isolation and lack of activities were community concerns. This put The Family YMCA on the historical map for two reasons. For one, our Y came into existence through an Act of Congress. Community volunteers had to petition Congress for a donation of property because all land and buildings were federally owned since World War II's Manhattan Project. The other historical fact is that The Family YMCA is the unique name ascribed to this Y located in Los Alamos. Ours was the very first “family” YMCA in the United States of America. Since 1955, some 480 of the U.S.’s 2,700 YMCAs, now incorporate the word “family” into their name, but our Y was the first one. Join us for an evening of exploration and networking FOOD PROVIDED BY: Española YMCA Teen Center, Pizza 9 Española and goodies from Pmi Espanola
