Y honors Shaw donation with sculpture dedication
While the YMCA’s presence in Newton was largely due to the generosity of the Maytag family, another set of donors also set forth a monumental endeavor for the Y.
In 2008, Nancy and the late E.K. Shaw, former publisher of the Newton Daily News, donated $750,000 that eventually would be used to remodel the east wing of the Newton Y for the YCC childcare program as well as the playground just to the east.
“(One) community leader saw the value of the Newton YMCA and made a donation three times the size of Mr. Maytag’s,” Newton YMCA Executive Director Tom Vanderlaan said. “That community leader was the late E.K. Shaw, longtime newspaper man, family man and philanthropist.”
