Firestone Mayor Pro-tem Paul Sorensen has been appointed to serve on the Ed & Ruth Lehman YMCA of Longmont board of directors. Sorensen will be a representative for the Carbon Valley area and will work with the three communities to determine recreational needs and programs for the area.
Sorensen has been in discussion with the YMCA throughout the last few years on ways to increase the organization’s well-established and successful programs in the Carbon Valley area. The Longmont YMCA currently provides after school care at a Carbon Valley elementary school, as well as other educational programs that support the community. Sorensen believes a sensible part of that vision would also include the planning for a future YMCA facility in Firestone.
