Instructor Gets a Surprise for her 50th

March 22, 2019

Franklin Family YMCA instructor Lynn Leaf did not celebrate her birthdays growing up. When fellow instructor Sara Ringley learned this fact, she went to work. 

“Lynn mentioned to me last week that her birthday was coming up on Friday and told me that she had not celebrated her birthday in years. With this being her 50h birthday, I felt in my heart that I wanted to do something special for her to celebrate this milestone,” Sara said.

Sara purchased a cake and balloons to surprise Lynn during her scheduled water aerobics class on Thursday. “I had no idea if the members in her water class would join me in celebrating Lynn’s birthday, but they went with the flow and celebrated Lynn during the entire water aerobics class!"

In Lynn’s honor, participants from Lynn’ hydrorider class tied blue balloons to their bikes and surprised her. When Lynn arrived she was overcome with joy. “What my class did for my birthday means a lot to me.” Lynn said. “Their efforts were so beautiful and incredibly thoughtful.”

Sara championed Lynn’s hydrorider class as an example of community at work within the walls of the Franklin Y. “I have been an instructor with the Franklin YMCA since it opened in 1995, and since that time, I have seen members and staff come together time and time again to celebrate in times of joy and uplift one another in times of need. The Franklin Family YMCA is a community, pure and simple. I am so thankful to be a member of our YMCA.”
