"The reason I chose to take a now picture of the YMCA is because of how much the YMCA has been involved in my life during my childhood. Since I moved to Wakefield in the 2nd grade my mom has sent me and my sister to the YMCA to be watched after while she went to work. While we were there we formed many great friendships and many lasting memories. The YMCA was a place where I spent most of my childhood and it still amazes me and the change it went through." - caption provided by Julia MacDonald, contest winner.;Winner of photo contest, Second Place, Teen category.
