Forty years ago two Warren County residents looked out over vacant land in Lebanon and envisioned a large, modern YMCA on the site.
Back then, fewer than 84,000 people called the county ‘home.’
Industrialist Ralph J. Stolle and land developer George Henkle created the vision and enlisted other community leaders to join them.
Today, your Y serves Warren County’s almost 215,000 residents.
