Why the YWCA? After retiring from 40 years as an elementary teacher in the Gettysburg Area School District, I had to decide what I would do with all the time that I no longer would fill with lesson plans, correcting papers, district committee work, or after school activities.

I was fortunate to have a fulfilling teaching career that I thoroughly enjoyed, so I sincerely felt it was my time to give back to the community. I considered many local organizations that help the community. I choose to become a member of the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County because its mission focuses on many of the areas that I believe need both financial and volunteer support in our community.

Lyne Aurand is the co-vice president of the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County Board of Directors.
