Longtime Elkhart resident Freddie R. Lee, who roughly 60 years ago was introduced to the YMCA culture as a young boy growing up in Missouri, found his way back to familiar ground -- the Palestine Y -- on Dec. 24, 2009. Just 13 months later Lee is more than 20 pounds lighter and has a greatly-improved outlook on life.
