BYE BYE OMNIFY!

As of Monday, 7/5, we will no longer be requiring reservations for lap swimming, with the exception of a dedicated lane for individuals who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19. This lane will need to be reserved by phone with one of our Welcome Center representatives. On 7/2, all Omnify accounts will be deactivated, and we will discontinue use of the service.

A pool schedule will be released sometime mid-week next week. There will continue to be plenty of opportunities for lap swimming, but please understand that it won't be the same as the past 10 months as we add more classes, lessons, and open swim time back into our schedule.
SWIM LESSON REGISTRATION OPENS MONDAY
Swim lesson registration will open at 7:00AM on Monday, June 28. Our Aquatics team has worked hard to incorporate as many opportunities as possible for swimmers at every level. Please view the flyer on the swim lesson page of our website.

THANK YOU!


June was a busy month for fundraising with two major events to support the work of the Y in our community.

First, our annual Kids To Camp Golf Outing presented by the Whittaker Family raised over $45,000 to support our camp program this summer. 

We also participated in Giving Is Gorges where we met our $5,000 goal to support our Membership Assistance Program and food equity programs. 

This would not be possible without the generous support of our volunteers, staff, and donors who put in an incredible amount of work to make these events successful. We sincerely appreciate every one of these folks!
