Mayor George Pradel recently led hundreds of people in an offering of thanks at his annual Community Prayer Breakfast at the Fry Family YMCA.
This is the eighth year Pradel teamed up with the Y for the inspirational event. The purpose of the morning is to celebrate the holiday season and support the mission statement of the YMCA: a healthy spirit, mind and body.
Guests enjoyed food, scriptures and speeches.
This year’s keynote speaker was Paula Gavin, Executive Director at New York City’s Fund for Public Advocacy and the former CEO of the YMCA of Greater New York.
Kids from Camp E.D.G.E, the Y’s new camp for youngsters to “educate, develop, give, and experience,” were this year’s youth speakers and Indian Prairie School District 204 students provided musical performances.
All money raised at the non-denominational event goes back to the YMCA.
