After nearly a decade of grassroots community support, we opened the Betty J. Pullum Family YMCA in 2006 in Navarre. The support of local community leaders enabled the Y to begin programming in the area in 1997 despite not having an actual branch. The branch was made possible by a generous land donation from Bill and Jeannie Pullum and a lead gift from the Bill and Martha Pullum Family Foundation, supported by hundreds of financial gifts and as many hours of volunteer time. The Pullum Branch is a popular gathering spot in this vibrant South Santa Rosa County community, offering opportunities for children, adults, families and seniors to grow stronger physically while connecting with others.
