From the Office of the CEO:
Dear YMCA Member,
It is finally starting to seem like the YMCA is getting back to more of a normal. It is wonderful to hear people in the building, and we are so happy to have everyone back. We really do appreciate our members and you mean so much to the YMCA staff. You are the reason we do what we do, and it is our mission to be here for you as you try to live a healthier life for your spirit, mind and body.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with the Florence Family YMCA through our closure during the COVID-19 shut down. Without you, our loyal members, we would not have been able to open back up as soon as we did. I want you to know how much the staff and I appreciate you continuing to support the YMCA during this very difficult time.
We are back to being open our regular hours, including Sunday, and almost every area of the YMCA is up and running. We are still practicing social distancing and extra cleaning measures throughout the building. Please continue to wipe down equipment before and after use and, as always, if you are not feeling well and/or have a fever please stay home. A workout is not worth spreading germs or viruses. Also, when wiping down machines, please make sure to wipe down all the areas of the machine your hands or body have come in contact with.
As we move forward in our new normalcy please continue to check our website and Facebook page for any updates or changes.
