Grossmont Healthcare District continues support for East County Family YMCA

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a taxpayer-supported public agency that supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County, has approved a $29,800 grant to the East County Family YMCA for the purchase of specialty exercise equipment at the McGrath Family YMCA facility in Rancho San Diego. The equipment, designed to improve strength and range of motion, will be especially helpful to seniors and others with limited mobility, YMCA officials said. The new equipment will be part of an expanded 7,500-square-foot expansion of the upstairs wellness center and exercise area at McGrath. YMCA said the total cost for the wellness center expansion is $105,760, and additional funds are expected from private donors in the community.
