'Y' signs

In response to “YMCA Not a Cure-All,” printed Monday, September 13, I feel that it is necessary to clarify how the “Yes to the Y” signs came to be. Camden for the Y is a group of local citizens who independently came together to rally support for establishing a YMCA. [Editor’s note: Mrs. Long identified herself to the C-I as a member of Camden for the Y.] Like any other political movement, we discussed ways in which our information could be shared and to raise awareness about the important decision voters face in the November election regarding recreation in the City of Camden. Yard signs were a natural venue for this. We contacted the YMCA and received permission to use the original sign design. We then placed an order (completely paid for by independent citizens -- not including Jeffrey Graham) for the signs.

It was not until Monday morning, when I received an apologetic call from a marketing representative from YMCA that I realized that there was a “problem” with the previously approved signs. Upon hearing that there is a problem with the use of the YMCA logo, we are removing the logo from our signs, determined to move forward in a positive light, promoting this awesome possibility for growth and better health in our community.
