Landing Y Spotlight
Charlie Ault, Landing Y Branch Director - We are pleased to introduce a new Y staff member to the Bath Area Family YMCA at the Landing Y. Charlie Ault will be leaving the corporate financial services world to join us as the Landing Y Branch Director. Charlie is making a career change after 30 years of banking. He is looking forward to a new challenge of impacting the community in a different way through non-profit service at the Y. "I am a promoter. I have been promoting financial services, now I would like to advocate for healthy lifestyle through mind and body. The Landing Y will expand the life-changing work of the Bath Area Family Y to more of the mid coast area."
Charlie is a lifetime road racer, he played basketball and continues as a basketball official for several different organizations. Charlie would like to incorporate a yoga practice into his life. When Charlie moved back to Maine in 1991, the first thing he did was join his local Central Lincoln County Y. He and his family have been very involved in the work of the Y since then. He loves that the Y has something for every age and ability. "Healthy Living, Youth Development, and social responsibility are some of the reasons people join the Y. I'll do whatever is needed to advocate for a healthy lifestyle and help people reach their potential."
Kevin Shute, Landing Y Program Support - A familiar face to those involved with the Y, Kevin Shute will be the Program Support at the Landing Y. Last August, Kevin retired from his full-time position of 16 years at the Bath Facility on Centre Street. With his commitment and dedication to the Y and to the community, we are pleased that Kevin will return in a part-time capacity to the Landing Y in January.
Just as Kevin was involved with the YMCA move from Summer Street to Centre Street in Bath in 2001, he is very excited for the Y's expansion to the Brunswick Landing. "I see potential in the Landing Y facility for community activities. We will respond to community needs by offering programs for all ages and abilities. The facility lends itself to new programming - for example, the rubber floor at the Landing Y gym offers programming possibilities that we cannot offer in Bath on the wooden gym floor." To benefit the community, Kevin is working closely with wellness instructors to schedule classes that will enhance that which is already offered in the area.
