Letter - Contribute to YMCA project

To the editor:

I was born and raised in Alexandria. My wife, Donna (Pitschka), was born in Alexandria and raised in Osakis. Over the years and in several states and communities, we have observed and personally experienced the value of a local YMCA. We have pledged $1,000 to the Alexandria YMCA capital campaign, even though we may not personally benefit.

The Alexandria area was a wonderful place in which to grow up and will be even better with a YMCA. We consider our pledge a legacy to future generations.

May we encourage all Alexandria High School and Osakis High School class reunion coordinators for the past 50-plus years to organize class contributions to the Alexandria Area YMCA.
