It’s fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A! The YMCA of Greater St. Louis (which celebrated its 160th anniversary) actually has 17 locations all over St. Louis (not including the Illinois ones). The one with this cake was at the Edward Jones Family YMCA in Maryland Heights. All YMCAs are focused on health and wellness programs, and for providing child care. The Edward Jones family donated a huge portion for the construction of the facility.

Memories: This was always an indoor cake, as it stood by the pool area in both locations.
