March 1, 2013, will be remembered as the day one of the "good guys" left us.

 

Larry "Jake" Hollamon, YMCA Kids Club site director, is retiring.  He is shown above, second from right, receiving a certificate of appreciation for his 20 years of service to public housing youth.  The certificate is being presented by HACE Executive Director John E. Horan.  Jake has worked at the Kids Club since it was opened -- first as the gym supervisor and for the past 18 years as the site director.  He was involved in everything from theatrical productions to cardboard boat races. "Jake is one of those people who will be very hard to replace," Horan said.  "He is one of the good guys. We will miss him."
