Active Aging Week 2019: September 30 - October 6We're Celebrating Life at 50+

Active Aging Week Logo 2019The YMCA will celebrate Active Aging Week with a week-long open house highlighting activities and programs we offer to adults ages 50 and older. The community, along with members and their guests, may visit the YMCAs across the county for free classes and special events. Adults ages 50 and older may enjoy free access to the Y for the week, and we will waive the join fee for new members — a $60 value.

The Y is proud to support the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) in promoting the benefits of active living at any age. Invite a friend!
