Participants in the Active Older Adults program can walk in the YMCA gym from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. on weekdays. There are no fees. For liability reasons, all walkers must register at the Y office prior to walking (no exceptions).

YMCA Party Night is an exciting, fun and safe way for your children to spend a Friday night. You can still register your first- to fourth-grader for the Disney-themed party on Jan. 16, 7-9 p.m., at the YMCA Activity Center. The fee for this party is $13 for current YMCA members and $15 for nonmembers. The Y will have games, contests, prizes, and serve pizza and drinks as well. Your child must be registered at the YMCA office prior to the party.

The YMCA Before & After School program is currently accepting employment applications. Come to the Y office for an application or more information.

The YMCA is having its third annual shotgun raffle to raise funds for the YMCA Youth Archery program. This year the Y will raffle a Remington Spartan 12-gauge over-and-under. Volunteers will sell tickets for $5 each. You may also purchase tickets at the YMCA office or at Duvall Automotive, 729 N. Chicago. Your ticket purchase helps support future sportsmen (and women) of Logan County.
