Spaghetti Dinner SUCCESS!!

by Kristi Potts on 05/06/19

On Saturday, April 27th, the Montgomery County Family YMCA along with several volunteers and contributors from local churches and businesses came together to prepare a spaghetti dinner to raise funds for those affected by a fire at an apartment house at 6th and Reed Streets in Red Oak on Saturday, April 20th, 2019. 

Over 150 community members were in attendance at the dinner and $2734 was raised.  In addition to this, Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial’s Matching Fund Program contributed $2500 in matching funds for a total of $5234 that will go to the fire victims. 

Sponsors for the Spaghetti Dinner were Hy Vee Food Stores, Inc. of Red Oak, Fareway Stores, Inc. of Red Oak, and Mark Jackson’s Downtown Red Oak Hardware Hank. 

Both the YMCA and the Modern Woodmen felt this was a well-attended and well-received event which shows how the local community can come together to help our neighbors in need.  “The community truly came together to support a local need and that support is what it’s all about,” said Carol Walters, local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader.   

John Blomstedt, Executive Director of the YMCA, commented, “The thanks from the displaced residents and the outpouring of community support was overwhelming.” 

For more information on how one can become a member, volunteer, donor, or simply involved with the Montgomery County Family YMCA, please stop in for a visit or tour of the YMCA, call the YMCA at 712-623-2161, or visit the YMCA on Facebook, or the Y’s website at

We Need Baseball Buddies!

by Kristi Potts on 05/06/19

Putting out a request for help of volunteers (baseball buddies) for our STAR League baseball games. As you might know this is a league for children between ages 5-18 with developmental disabilities. Many of these children have no other opportunities to participate in team sports other than this league.  We are drawing parents and kids from outside of Red Oak (Treynor, Clarinda, Avoca..etc) as the word spreads about the league..its growing! So we need more volunteers! 

Our opening game of 2019 season was Saturday, May 4th and we desperately need more volunteers as it takes quite a few to manage the games with these children. We have games this coming Saturday May 11th and Saturday May 18th  at the RO Sports Complex.

Volunteers (baseball buddies) would help kids run bases/fielding/throwing/batting. We need volunteers to report by no later than 9:30 am to the Complex so we can get all oriented and ready for 10 am game start.  Game is over by no later than 11:00 am. Volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age or older. You do not need to have a lot of experience with baseball/softball to volunteer.  

If you should have any questions please give me a call at the YMCA @ 712.623.2161.
