Honor in bronze

The plaque was created by Steve Maxon and Doris Park. Day’s daughter-in-law Diane Day, former Y Director Mary Carol Fish, former Y staff member Lila Depenning, former YW members Gerry Schmidt and Esther Bordwell were invited guests to the unveiling Monday. Y director Becky Harkema and child care director Shalon Hoyle were also present.
