AMHERST - The history of the Y's Menettes has been changing behind closed doors as the service group provides assistance to communities both here at home and around the world.

AMHERST - The history of the Y's Menettes has been changing behind closed doors as the service group provides assistance to communities both here at home and around the world.
For the first time in its history, the Y's Menettes has regional, national and international leaders operating right here in the Maritimes and besides being exciting, says regional director Marie Osborne, its been an opportunity unlike any other.
"It's a unique position when all the top positions are held in the Maritimes," Osborne said. "
During the 2007-2008 term Canadian director Sharon Merrill of Amherst and international director Carol Reynolds from Sydney join Osborne in creating history.
"This has not happened before in my sixteen-plus years of Y's-dom," Osborne says. "Although the Maritimes has provided leadership before but never in a 3-in-1 package."
Osborne's term as regional director will come to an end this May when the district convention will be held in Amherst. Her successor, Carol Dunbar, will keep the 3-in-1 package going, however. Dunbar is from New Glasgow and will partner with Merrilll and Reynolds for providing direction and leadership to the Y's Menettes during the 2008-2009 year.
At that time the changing of the guard will also see the face of the Y's Men International become more familiar. Kevin Cummings of Springhill is now International President Elect and will soon assume the roles and responsibilities of being the Y's Men figure head for the 2008-2009 year.
Canadian Area President Bill Irwin of Charlottetown will also be passing on his responsibilities to a hometown face, Amherst's Wayne Jarvis.
