The fight involved adults and broke out at the recreation center on May 9 following a basketball game.
Police were called to the West County YMCA last week after a fight broke out following a basketball match. Chesterfield Police said the May 9 incident involved adults and began with an argument over a "sporting disagreement" that escalated when an unknown subject pushed once of the victims in the chest.

YMCA Literacy program will train volunteer leaders.
Sunday, February 5, 2012
St. Louis County Library and the YMCA are teaming up to help find volunteers interested in helping St. Louisans improve their reading skills. The YMCA Community Literacy program will train volunteers to help children who are reading below grade level. Volunteers can use St. Louis County Library branches as meeting places to conduct tutoring sessions.

At this time there is a six-month waiting period for those who have requested tutoring, so volunteers are urgently needed. Applications for the YRead volunteer program can be obtained at all branches of St. Louis County Library. Those who apply will also be …

A play at the West County Family YMCA captured the magic of the children's adventure book.
The Phantom Tollbooth follows the story of Milo, a bored boy who received a magic tollbooth, which transports him to the Kingdom of Knowledge. The book, written by Norton Juster, tells of Milo's quest to rescue Princesses Rhyme and Reason. Last weekend, the Y-Rep Kids troupe, a group of 8- to 14-year-old actors, performed the stage version at the West County Family YMCA of the classic book known for its word play. Each Thursday, we feature snapshots of life in Chesterfield. We'll be at band concerts, story times, plays and other activities around town. If you know of somewhere we should be next week, let us know in the comments or e-mail editor Rachel Heaton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
