New on the Web: The YMCA is excited to announce that your
Lincoln Area YMCA and David Doolin of Infinity-x.net have just about
completed building the new Lincoln Area YMCA site on the Web! The
newly developed and totally revamped site will be launched in
January. It will have endless possibilities, including online
registration, educational videos, helpful links for children and
families, etc., but for now all of the current pages have been
reorganized to make information easier to find and more
user-friendly. For more information, comments or if you just want to
give us an idea for the site, call 217-735-3915.
