Our 𝔸𝕟𝕟𝕦𝕒𝕝 𝕐𝕒𝕣𝕕 𝕊𝕒𝕝𝕖, which benefits the Scholarship Program at the Blair Regional YMCA, saw a record turnout and raised almost $9,700 to aid members of the #BlairCounty #community!
We also want to thank all of the volunteers and staff who made this year’s Yard Sale possible! It takes dedication and determination to pull these events off and we have the most amazing team of people surrounding us at the #BRY!
