If you hear strange noises in the attic, you might be living with a flying squirrel! The cute little critters love to burrow in warm, dark spaces and are native New Englanders. This aerodynamic cutie visited the YWCA Children's Center for the last event in the free YWCA Summer Fun Series, sponsored by Newburyport Development. Thank you to everyone who attended, performed, and contributed to make it so much fun! Hopefully we'll see you all next Summer with another great lineup of entertainers and performances.

The YWCA’s Fall I Swim program kicks off the first week of September (September 2-October 25), and General registration is now Open.  Classes are offered for infants and toddlers, swimming with their parents, and for preschoolers, school-aged children, and adults looking to improve their stroke or get in the pool for the first time.

heart disease by 70%. But of the five healthy behaviors, the single most important contributing factor was determined to be exercise. Read full article.
