As the Y we are proud to be the gathering place where all people come together in the name of health, wellness, and togetherness.

In the past, our members and families have told us that they want to be together at the Y enjoying community on holidays. We are also sensitive to the fact that holidays can be difficult for some in our community and being connected with others, especially on holidays, is important.

This year, we discussed our holiday operating hours with staff. We listened to their feedback to understand the impact of expanding our hours would have on their ability to spend time with their families. Fortunately, we heard from many of our part-time and full-time staff that they are willing and eager to work the extra hours made available by being open more days during the year. 

Based on that feedback, we are happy to announce that we are extending our branch operating hours on the following nationally recognized holidays:

  • December 31, 2021 (New Year’s Eve) 6:00 am - 3:00 pm

On these nationally recognized holidays, branches may offer special programming in celebration of the holiday and unique schedules for things like Group Exercise Classes or Kids Zone. Before you visit, take a moment to check your branch's schedule:

We are working to be a place welcoming to people of all backgrounds and cultures, regardless of what holidays they celebrate, or how they chose to celebrate them. Being a welcoming place in our community starts with our employees, who represent different ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, customs and interests, and countries of birth. These holidays are only a few of the holidays some of our staff celebrate all year.

For these nationally recognized holidays, our holiday hours are a way to make sure we are there for our members and families, regardless of if, or how, they celebrate.  

We look forward to enjoying the holidays with you and your family at the Y!
