FREE PROGRAMS

These free programs are open to everyone at no charge plus the YMCA has financial assistance so anyone can become a member of the Y or participate in Y programs.

Family Night

An evening of free, fun family time every month on the 3rd Friday starting at 6pm. Activities include swimming, volleyball, basketball, racquetball and wallyball (volleyball in a racquetball court). You can visit the youth center for billiards, foosball, art and video games. Try rock climbing while staff belays you in our climbing gym or enjoy a swim in our large swimming pool with a slide and a giant hot tub.

Potluck Lunch

Come and enjoy a healthy lunch at the Y on the last Friday of each month from 12:30-1:30pm. It is a simple way to meet new friends so bring yourself and a side dish to share.

Nutrition Workshop

When you eat healthy food you feel better, look better, have more energy, think more clearly and enjoy life more!  Learn how to eat more healthful and make better food choices for yourself and your family.  Join us each month at the Y.  Learn dates and times on the Nutrition Workshop flyer.

Jog Your Memory Class

Join us each Monday from 9:00-10:00am for this socially interactive, mental fitness program designed for healthy older adults.  The primary goals of this class are to exercise and stimulate parts of the brain while learning about aging and memory.  Jog Your Memory Class integrates challenging puzzles and interactive games with scientific information on aging.  New and different exercises are offered each week.  

YMCA Open House (April)

Held every year on the second Saturday in April on the same day as the Pear Blossom Festival in conjunction with the YMCA’s signature event, the Pear Blossom Run and Mayor’s Cup Fun Run. A free pancake feed is served after you explore the booths and games in the gym.

Halloween at the Y (October)

Trunk-or-Treat is held every year on 10/31 Halloween night from 6:00-8:00pm in the Y parking lot. With over 30 decorated cars and 500 kids in costume, this event is a safe, fun, holiday celebration for the whole family. There are three ways to join in: 1) Donate candy and treats, 2) Decorate your car trunk like you would your front porch and pass out candy, or 3) Bring your kids to trick-or-treat from car to car.

Jingle Bell Jog & Cookie Contest (December)

This two part event is held before Christmas. On the Monday before Christmas (12/16/13) we gather at 6:30pm where one group runs about 3 miles and the other group walks about 1 mile, all enjoying a neighborhood decorated with Chrismas lights.  On the third Friday of December (12/20/13) at 6:00pm, you can either bake and submit a plate of cookies to win prizes, be a tasting judge or just come to enjoy music, fellowship and make homemade treats.
