We are fortunate to be the recipients of the La Porte High School Class of 1984's generosity and commitment to give back to the La Porte community. In lieu of a "traditional" 30th class reunion, on July 12th, beginning at 10:00 AM, they will be helping with a service project at the Y's Andrew Avenue Outdoor Education and Recreation Center.  The class will be working on projects such as re-mulching of the walking trails and staining the tree house and gaga pits as well as some day to day maintenance jobs.   After they complete the service project, they will enjoy catching up with classmates at our Center with a class picnic. If you know someone that graduated from La Porte High School in 1984, please pass this information on or contact Brad Hermsen at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Parents of campers-the YMCA has been evacuated due to a major gas line break.  CHILDREN ARE SAFE AND ACCOUNTED FOR.  All children except second and third graders can be picked up from Lincoln Elementary School.  Second and third graders are still at the Andrew Avenue location and may be picked up from there.  If your child has belongings in the YMCA, once we are able to return to the building you can come back and retrieve your child's belongings or pick them up in the morning.
