This book relates the Orillia YMCA’s ground-breaking position in the YMCA movement and its impact on the town. It was the first YMCA to invite women members, it built the only indoor pool north of Toronto for 40 years, it developed the largest Y’s Men’s service club in Canada, it groomed Mert Plunkett who created the famous “Dumbells” vaudeville troupe during WWI and Skid Watson, the legendary civic leader in Orillia. For years it was known as the “finest small town YMCA in North America”.
