New YMCA wellness location

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

On behalf of the staff, Board of Directors, and members of the YMCA of the Okobojis, we are excited to announce that the Bedell Family YMCA will be expanding its adult wellness and fitness opportunities to the "SNAP Fitness" location in Milford. This will be our second Healthy Living Program Center, in effort to expand our reach and offer more programming to our members throughout our county. Now our members will have the "Join One -- Join All" option at three locations, plus great opportunities with Camp Foster and their outstanding programs.

Current Snap Fitness members will have the opportunity to enroll membership to the Bedell Family YMCA at one of the three locations. Joining fee will be waived for the month of September. The hours of the Healthy Living Program Center Milford will be 5 a.m. - 11 p.m. Monday--Friday and 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. Saturday--Sunday. The YMCA is a customer service based organization, and the facilities are staffed at all times that they are open. Memberships are set up on a monthly or annual option, with a number of different categories available to fit your particular needs.

The Bedell Family YMCA will officially be staffing the Healthy Living Program Center Milford starting at 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 9. We look forward to offering this opportunity to our current members, and new members throughout the Iowa Great Lakes.

For additional information, please call the Bedell Family YMCA and visit with the member service staff, or call Norm Johnson at 336-9622.

The Y strengthens the foundations of a community by focusing on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors.

Thank you for your support,

Norman L Johnson

Chief Executive Officer
