Fall is right around the corner, and so are fun and exciting benefits at your Y. Starting in September, we’re bringing you expanded hours and some of your favorite programs and services. No matter which Y you visit, you’ll find a welcoming and nurturing Y walking alongside you towards Whole Person Health. 

Our journey over the last two and a half years has challenged us to step up even more to keep our promise to community and to be there for those who need us most. Despite these challenges, we have found a way, thanks to your membership, to make investments in our staff, facilities, and programming and to always be a place of belonging for youth and families. Your membership is so much more than a “gym membership” — it epitomizes the true meaning of community caring for community.  

We work hard to ensure that your membership rate remains cost-effective and full of valuable membership benefits and services, while we offer financial support for those who need assistance. With the expansion of hours and programming and the significant cost increases, effective September 2022, the Y will adjust membership rates for the first time since 2019. This rate adjustment will enable us to continue to be there for community and provide the Whole Person Health experience you deserve.  

Please check your email for your new membership rate, beginning with your September membership payment.
