Y joins growing list of certified Spencer Blue Zones

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Representatives from the Spencer Y were joined by local Blue Zones Project coordinators and members of the Spencer Ambassadors to celebrate its becoming a Blue Zones certified business on Wednesday. The certification followed 100 percent employee participation in the Blue Zones Project. Erin Pingel, engagement lead specialist for the Spencer Blue Zones Project, presented the certificate to Megan Whitaker, with the Y (above). The Spencer Y is the first YMCA in the state to be recognized as a Blue Zones certified operation. It earned its certification on Aug. 22. Part of the process involved a summer gardening project (below) involving the children in the Y youth program. The Y joins Spencer's other Blue Zones certified work areas.
