Indiana's YMCA Camp Tecumseh to Make Major Additions

YMCA Camp Tecumseh (Brookston, Ind.) has, as its goal, to be the friendliest, most welcoming place possible. Hartsook has been retained to help the Camp in its campaign to add to and expand its already impressive programs and facilities. Camp Tecumseh YMCA's mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Its motto, "I am third," can be seen in everything to do with Camp Tecumseh:  Encouraging each person to put God first, others second, and themselves third.


Pathways to the Future Enters its Next Phase

Labette Community College (Parsons, Kan.) has completed its first phase of Pathways to the Future. That successful campaign provided the campus with a new 28,000-square foot Health Science facility, endowment funding for scholarships, and support for deferred maintenance. Now the school is turning its attention to support sports and athletics-related academics: Athletic Training, Exercise Science, and Physical Education. A new and exciting phase of Pathways to the Future includes an expansion, major renovation and upgrades to our Athletic Center, additional endowment funding for scholarships and ongoing facility maintenance, and support for its Annual Fund.

Village Shalom is a senior living community with a mission to nurture the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of every individual whom we are privileged to serve, inspired by our heritage as a Jewish-sponsored continuing-care retirement community. Hartsook has been retained to assist with the organization's campaign: A Defining Moment.
