"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve on the board again and can't wait to get started," said Eroh. "There are so many exciting things happening at the Y that will have an impact on many people in our area and I love that I get to be part of that."
On the Board of Directors Eroh will serve on the Marketing Committee, which will allow her to use her background in public relations to help with different events. During her previous time on the Y board Eroh also worked on the Marketing Committee, so she is already familiar with the job that needs to be done.
"Serving on the Y board is close to my heart for many reasons, one being that I'm following in the footsteps of my father and grandfather," said Eroh. "Just like I am the third generation of our family to run Bauer Funeral Home, I am a third-generation board member. It's something special I get to share with them."
Eroh's grandfather, Amberson C. "Amby" Bauer, became the president of the board in 1957 and oversaw the purchase of the original Y building. He was also instrumental in leading the additions to the building, including the natatorium and Bauer Hall. Amby's son and Eroh's father, John W. "Jack" Bauer, also served as president of the Board of Directors, has been a trustee for over 30 years and currently is the All Campaigns Chair overseeing the Annual Campaign, the Capital Campaign and the Endowment Fund.
Eroh's daughters are another reason why working with the Y is important to her. "My girls have belonged to the Snyder Stingrays Swim Team for a few years now and I am an active swim team parent," she said. "I see first-hand the positive impact this organization has on my daughters' lives and I hope to use my time and talents to bring similar experiences to local families."
Despite the break that Eroh took from serving on the board, she still found a way to assist the Y by working with the Annual Campaign. In 2017, Eroh led an Aquatics Annual Campaign Team which helped raise money to provide swim lessons for local children.
As a result of last year's Annual campaign, $75,000 has gone toward for community outreach, the Healthy Living Initiative, youth programing, membership and the Military Initiative. After the success of the 2017 campaign, Eroh and the rest of the Y leadership are excited to get started raising funds for 2018.
"So many positive opportunities for people of all ages are available now because of all the money given during the Annual Campaign," said Eroh. "I am thankful for the chance to offer my time and talents to the Y and can't wait to see the progress made in the coming years."
