Arc of Yates Color Guard Unit

Formed in February of 2013, the Arc of Yates Color Guard Unit has performed in multiple competitions across the Finger Lakes region.  Led by volunteers Hannah Pettengill and Carolyn Spitzer who also choreograph the routines, participants practice weekly to prepare for competition. Most recently the guard performed on February 3rd at Marcus Whitman High School and is scheduled to perform next in Corning on March 24th.   At the Arc of Yates, we pride ourselves in creating an environment of exploration, opportunities and possibilities, and are grateful for those volunteers who support us in these efforts.
