THE "Y" IS LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP!


I mentioned this before, but wanted to put in a reminder and an invitation:   
The YMCA of Summerside is looking into a potential project for the Summerside area, but first they would like to get some feedback about how people would view the idea. I am posting a link to their online survey so that you can fill it out for them. They could really use some help to find out how the community feels. Thanks. Gloria        

 Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YMCAPEI

And here is the invitation:     If you would like to drop by our EPSI office, I have the hard copy survey that you can fill out and we will fax it for you.    OR you can use one of our laptops to fill in your responses.    We'd be happy to set it up for you.    So stop in anytime!
