Spreading Cheer All Year

Barbara Lowe Newsletters Leave a Comment

With the winter weather fast approaching, many people are already starting to plan their festive gatherings and holiday time spent with family and friends. Fun, good fellowship and community service are the keystones of all Midland Y’s Men’s activities, and we love celebrating this season of giving.

What is your favourite way to give back over the holidays?

Each winter, the Midland Y’s Men’s Club spreads joy by donating toys and clothes to local families in need, inviting new friends in for a hot meal, participating in local charity events, and helping support the broader community through many projects and activities. One of these activities is our annual Cheer for a Year raffle – which sells out every year!

Proceeds from the ticket raffle help the club support many local programs in our hometown including:

  • Music Festival – The Midland Y’s Men’s Music Festival encourages the study and advancement of music, while providing youth of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to perform, to be adjudicated by music professionals and to be rewarded.


  • Georgian Bay General HospitalThe Midland Y’s Men have made GBGH one of their main causes, donating generously and regularly to our local hospital. Our most recent donation helped fund the major renovation of GBGH’s new Emergency Department.


  • Free Friday Youth Night at the Midland YMCAYouth Nights at the YMCA provide a fun place for young people to hang out in a safe environment. Each Friday night, youth ages 10-17 have FREE access to the YMCA, including Pool, Gymnasium, Youth Zone and the Wellness Centre (13+).
