It's hard to believe we are nearing the middle of August. We hope you have been enjoying summer! We are looking ahead to fall and would like share our latest updates with you.

We will continue to follow our current COVID-19 guidelines, admitting Y members and program members only. Thank you to our members for your cooperation. Our procedures have been tested and have worked so that we have avoided the need to close sections or all of our Y due to virus exposure.

Fall will bring extended hours.
