Dear Y Member:

We are writing to share some important news: the Y’s fitness center at 62 Main Street’s last day of operation will be on March 29th.  As much as we wanted to share this information earlier with you, the date was only determined this week. We are sharing this with you now and apologize for the short notice.

As many of you are aware our home at 62 Main Street was put up for sale in July 2019.  Although this has been our home for over 100 years, the numerous building challenges prompted our Board of Directors to authorize a capital needs assessment which determined that additional renovations to this aging facility were not feasible.  It has been an arduous process as the sale was contingent on a number of approvals at the local, county and state level.  In addition it has been hard to foresee the impact of COVID on the overall project.

In 2019 when we put the building up for sale our plan was to establish a new fitness facility. However, over the course of 2020 the impact of COVID on the fitness industry has caused us to reevaluate this plan. As others in fitness have experienced, our membership base has been greatly reduced due to the pandemic. It is down over 70% since last March. Therefore, we have changed our focus to reopening in a new location once the majority of the population is vaccinated and feels comfortable returning to indoor fitness.                                          

We will continue to offer virtual fitness classes and as the weather improves provide outdoor group exercise classes.  Our Dance and Cheer programs will continue as well as our childcare services in an interim space at the EF Campus while we search for a permanent home.  Lap swimming will continue at EF until March 31st.  Be on the lookout for expanded programming in the very near future.

We thank you for being a part of our Y Family and look forward to serving you in our next phase.  Please refer to the FAQ for more information.
