December 18th Join Us for a Ride on the Polar Express

Polar Express Train

Stop by the front desk  for a quick membership update, and receive a Hot chocolate and cookies as our way of thanking you for a wonderful year.

The Young at heart will be dressed in our Jammies ready to see Santa and travel to the North Pole. Kids will enjoy their Hot Cocoa in our cozy drop off, complete with the Polar Express movie and fun christmas crafts to take home.  A great day to be Grateful for all the Year's blessings that have come our way. 

Fitness Classes will be cancelled this day, as we say Thank you to our Staff for all their hard work this year.  Nominate your favorite YMCA employee by dropping your loose change in their stocking. All proceeds will be given to a charity organization of their choosing.
