YMCA Association Facts
History: Volunteer founded, and volunteer led, the YMCA was established in London, England, in 1844 by George Williams, a draper's shop assistant, to give young men an alternative to life on the streets.
In 1851, Thomas Sullivan, a retired sea captain and lay missionary, started the first U.S. YMCA in Boston. From there, YMCAs spread rapidly across America. Some were started to serve specific groups such as railroad and factory workers, as well as African Americans, Native Americans, and recent immigrants. After World War II women and girls were admitted to full membership and participation.
YMCAs today are collectively the largest not-for-profit community service organization in the U.S. with over 2600 YMCA facilities serving over 20.1 million members. YMCAs are for people of all faiths, races, ages, abilities and incomes. Nobody is ever turned away for inability to pay set fees.
The YMCA program in Plainview is based on a foundation laid in 1928, with the organization of a boy's Hi-Y and girl's Hi-Y in the mid-thirties. Clyde Seeley, area director came in 1948 to coordinate the Hi-Y programs and start a summer recreational program. In 1950, Col. Dan Pitts came to start a year-round program and the Y was certified in 1956. Gerry Morse was hired in 1957 as the CEO and served through 1959. Dwight Hanners was hired in 1959 as the CEO & remained with the Y until 1970. In 1973 Jack Geyer was hired as the CEO. Under his leadership, an $850,000 capital campaign was launched and phase one of the current facility was built. In 1987, Charlie Lord was hired as the CEO and the facility grew in membership, participation, and budget. In 1991, Richard Galle entered as the new CEO to direct a $1.2 million-dollar capital drive to complete phase 2 of project. This included the gym, additional racquetball courts, a new aerobics center, weight room, nursery, meeting room, and all-purpose rooms. Daryl McAllister served as CEO from 2001- 2002. Jeri Strange was hired as the CEO in 2003 and served through 2007. Under Jeri's leadership, the Y grew in membership, participation, and budget. She also led a $450,000 capital drive to renovate the pool, add ball fields, and parking. Our latest CEO, Rob Wilkinson, was hired in 2008 and served through 2018. Under Rob's leadership membership has grown to over 5,000 members, program participation has increased, over one million dollars in capital projects have been completed, and the budget has increased from $750k to over $1.6 million dollars.
