Everyone is welcome at the Y. Members are the heart of the Y and our most valuable asset. Members come to us at all ages, in all shapes and sizes. Our goal is to have everyone be a member of the Y and to be so satisfied with the member experience that they would never think of going anywhere else.

In fact, we have a special effort this month to encourage members to refer friends, business associates and neighbors to the Y.

For new members joining the Y between now and October 31, they receive a FREE t-shirt. If you are a current member and refer a friend, you get a FREE gift when they join! So share with others – because A BETTER YOU MAKES A BETTER US. Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.
