The Washington County Family YMCA is celebrating 10 years at their Shelby Street facility.
The celebration will benefit perspective new members, as well as provide a challenge with exciting prizes for current members.
New members can join now with no join fee, as well as save up to $100 on their annual memberships. There will also be a free week of group exercise classes during the week of Nov. 17-21st with over 28 classes to choose from.
An anniversary open house is also scheduled for Nov. 18th from 5-7 pm in the lobby. “We will be sharing our history through scrap books and stories with members old and new as well as offering refreshments compliments of the Y Board of Directors” said Board Treasurer Rusty Hudson. The YMCA has impacted Washington county through volunteer programming, several Youth Development programs and activities, Fitness, Nutrition workshops, and Social Responsibility programs such as A Salute to Our Soldiers, which will be celebrated during the month of November. These programs, among others would be difficult to execute without the facility at 1709 North Shelby Street.
“I cannot believe it’s been 10 years since we opened this building” Said Fitness Instructor Lisa Lemmons, “It feels like yesterday we were cutting the ribbon.” Lisa has been an instructor for over 20 years, 10 of them at the Washington County Y.
Current members also get to join in on the anniversary activities. They are invited to participate in the Anniversary Group Exercises Challenge. Beginning November 8 and running through December 31st , members get a gold star for each class they attend. Top 2 members with highest attendance will win Y-Bucks to spend on Y Gear and accessories.
