    • Bring your own aquatic equipment – towels, kickboards, noodles and goggles please. Equipment is temporarily unavailable.

We greatly appreciate those who maintained their membership and those who donated to our Covid-19 Relief Fund. The Y is more than a building, it’s the people – people from all backgrounds who come together to improve their lives, nurture their families and help their neighbors. People like you!



This program encourages us to stay healthy together, virtually. Weekly meetings for discussion and exercise, as well as nutritional suggestions and tips will be shared. Give this program a try – to lose weight, maintain your fitness, or just to connect with others.

Once weekly we will meet together to talk, and twice weekly we will offer exercise classes together.  All meetings will be held on Zoom, a virtual meeting platform.

When We’ll Talk:  Mondays at 3:30pm

When We’ll Exercise: Wednesdays at 5pm and Fridays at 3:30pm
