History: Soren Rasmussen, a local banker and businessman, set aside funds for a YMCA in 1947. A committee hired Colin Brown as secretary. Brown organized the Minot Y’s Men’s Club and was executive director for the YMCA once it was in operation. The first fund-raising event was selling Christmas Trees. The club bought land and arranged to have 10,000 trees planted . The club bought land for the Triangle Y Camp in 1956. The club erected 18 buildings and opened the camp in 1964. The Y’s Men’s club contributes about $20,000 to Triangle Y Camp each year.
