Veterans Day is a time to show how grateful we are for the sacrifices made by our many Armed Forces.  At Baxter YMCA we try to celebrate families each and every day which is what we have in mind for Friday, Nov. 8.  Expect vendors to provide a variety of  information along with fun activities such as face painting, a bounce house, crafts, and snacks provided by Chick-fil-a.  We want to acknowledge the sacrifice the entire family makes when a loved one is in the military, but we want to help you make memories too!
