Teen Leaders Club is a new program at the YMCA this fall. One of the first projects for the Ten Leaders is a canned food drive. Barrels will be located at the YMCA for dona-tions from Nov. 2 through 20. The club has secured a person who will donate one pound of meat for each donated can. Once the food drive is completed, all food will be given to area food banks.

All fall programs will begin the week of Nov. 2. Classes include a wide variety of fitness and aquatic classes, cheerleading, gymnastics, group cycling and many others. Classes run seven weeks. Additional can be obtained by visiting the YMCA Web site at
