YMCA to provide free weekend breakfasts

The YMCA of Sequim is looking to keep local youths well-fed this summer, offering free, take-home weekend breakfasts starting Friday, July 23.

Breakfast meals will be available for pick-up from 2-8 p.m. on Fridays at the YMCA of Sequim front desk, 610 N. Fifth Ave. Each meal will be enough to supply two days of breakfast for up to four people, depending on each family’s needs, YMCA representatives said last week.

No sign-up for meals is necessary, and children can show up at the YMCA if they are in need of breakfast over the weekend.

The Nourishing Neighbors Breakfast for Kids program from Albertsons and Safeway stores awarded the YMCA of Sequim a $3,000 grant to provide free breakfasts for individuals of ages 0-18.

Nourishing Neighbors is focused on providing breakfasts in and out of school through federal nutrition programs and other means to combat childhood hunger in America, YMCA representatives said.

“We’re grateful to have this opportunity to support our community and provide free breakfasts for kids to take home this summer,” said Gail Sumpter, YMCA of Sequim branch executive.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
