Y Service Clubs International US Area

North Central Region

The North Central Region covers the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. There are five clubs with a total membership of 100.  Our Regional Convention was October 18, 2014, at the Southdale YMCA in Edina Minnesota.  In addition to participating in Y’s Men International, our clubs support the regional YMCA branches by selling Christmas Trees annually, food sales at Y summer camp, hosting a rodeo as well as other volunteer activities one unique, as noted below. The Colin Brown Y’s Men’s Club in conjunction with the Minot Y’s Men (non-affiliated club) continues to work hard to provide support and funding for the Minot YMCA and the Triangle youth camp on Lake Sakakawea. The Triangle T Camp hosted over 1300 youth campers this last summer. In conjunction with supporting the Triangle Y Camp, the Y’s Men support the Tough Enough to Wear Pink program. The Tough Enough To Wear Pink Campaign continues to raise funds to provide patients access to Trinity Health’s new cancer exercise rehab program at the Minot Family YMCA. This Innovative new program offers dramatic results in the quality of life and rehabilitation for those fighting cancer. The convention should be in 2017 at the Midway YMCA and our Spring Board meeting will be on Saturday, April 11, 2020, in the Twin Cities.  Thank You to all Clubs for Your Support and Making a difference!
