We have a day for giving thanks, but on December 2 you can do more with #givingtuesday. Join others around the world in giving to causes you care about. Take an #UNselfie and tell us why you give to the Y.
This is the time of year to give thanks for the blessings we have and to reach out a helping hand to those in need. You can help members of our community simply by purchasing a $20 Thanksgiving meal voucher from Saar's Marketplace and leaving it with the Welcome Center. We will distribute vouchers to families who would otherwise not have Thanksgiving dinner. Please bring vouchers in by Monday, November 24 and thank you for your generosity.
For more information, contact Amy Boheman, 253-460-8924, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Little Learners went on a voyage through the building this week to learn about the Pilgrims' journey to Plymouth Rock in 1620.
Today, we start the process of upgrading some of our workout machines. Friday morning, we will be replacing five machines, the StairMaster Stepmills, Marpo Rope Trainer, and Sci-Fit.
On Monday, we will be replacing 39 of the Precor and Octane machines and replacing them with newer models. We will also be moving existing equipment to accommodate the new equipment.
There may be times during the day when equipment will be unavailable or in transition. We will do our best to minimize that time and we greatly appreciate your patience during this process.
