AMHERST – On February 4th 2023, George Lyle, a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away at the age of 83.

During his lifetime, George enjoyed racing stock cars at numerous New England speedways, operating heavy equipment and was skilled in mechanics. He was an avid country music fan, loved classic cars and had an appreciation for wildlife.
During his professional career George worked for the NH state Highway Department where he developed his love for the state. He was later employed as a truck driver and lumber yard attendant by Reeds Ferry Lumber in Merrimack NH, where he was a devoted employee for 31 years.
George enjoyed life, meeting new people and with his magnetic personality he made friends easily. He was quick with a joke, a jack of all trades and always willing to help anyone in need. George’s kind heart and joyful presence will be missed by all who knew him.

YMCA of Greater Nashua Renews Its GuideStar Platinum Level of Transparency
Allows Donors to Focus on Progress and Results
NASHUA —YMCA of Greater Nashua renewed its Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Profile Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing metrics that highlight progress the YMCA is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors move beyond simplistic ways of nonprofit evaluation such as overhead ratios. (In 2019, Foundation Center merged with GuideStar to form Candid.)
"In accordance with our long-held belief in being transparent about our work,” said Elizabeth Covino, “we are excited to convey our organization’s results in a user-friendly and highly visual manner. By updating our Candid/GuideStar Nonprofit Profile to the Platinum level, we can now easily share a wealth of up-to-date organizational metrics."
To reach the Platinum level, the YMCA added extensive information to its Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward its mission. The YMCA of Greater Nashua has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful data to evaluate the YMCA. "I encourage our volunteers, donors and members to visit our profile on Candid/GuideStar to see what we're all about," added Ms. Covino."
