YMCA of the Foothills volunteers, staff, friends and family gathered May 20 at the Crescenta-Canada Family YMCA in La Cañada to celebrate the announcement of the 2009-10 Volunteer Awards.
Bruce Waggoner was named the Pat Aho Volunteer of the Year award for his efforts on behalf of the Y. He was presented the award by last year's recipient, Norma Klingensmith.
Waggoner has been a volunteer at the CC-YMCA since 1988 and has been coaching gymnastics for 27 years.
"Coaching is fun, rewarding and exciting," Waggoner said. "I always have a good end to my day when I coach. For me, it is a combination of loving kids and loving gymnastics that makes volunteering at the YMCA so special."
