While YMCA membership in Wellman has been steady in recent years, the organization would like to become more visible in the community.

Amy Schulte, Washington County YMCA association director, presented a report to the Wellman City Council Monday.

“We want to be more present in the community,” Schulte said. “We’ve done that in Washington, but not in Wellman or Kalona. The Y would like to be more involved in community activities.”

She said that includes YMCA staffers becoming involved in local chamber events and volunteering for various activities.

Membership numbers tend to dip during the summer months, she said, because people become involved in other summer activities.

Since 2014, average membership in Wellman has been 799. She said the organization hopes to increase those numbers with more outreach.

Schulte also reported that the recent theater camp in Wellman was a “huge success.”

“This is something unique and was only offered at the Wellman Y,” she said.
