Gordon family names the Sumner YMCA

January 15, 2014 

The future Sumner YMCA has been named the Gordon Family YMCA, in recognition of the financial support from Heartland Express of Iowa, a longtime owner of Gordon Trucking, which has employed nearly 1,000 Sumner-area residents since 1946.

“We are humbled to have the Gordon family, who is ingrained in the community, give so generously to what will be the community hub of Sumner and serve an expected 22,000 people,” said Bob Ecklund, YMCA president and CEO.
