News & Announcements
August 18th – September 1st
This year we are investing over $195,000 in our facility for upgraded equipment, repairs and maintenance. As we work to give you the best facility and resources, we may have to limit access to areas of the Y between August 18th – September 1st. We understand how important your fitness routine is to you and strive to complete the above improvements with as little disruption to your schedule as possible. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our schedule and projects may change without advance notice. We strongly suggest you call the Y for the most up-to-date closures. Click here for our scheduled projects. We thank you for your patience while we improve your Y!
