The new YMCA of Southern Indiana's long-awaited Floyd County Branch will host the public for a grand opening celebration from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at 33 State Street on the river in New Albany.
All ages will enjoy tours of the state-of-the-art facility that includes a 2,000 sq. ft. lobby/atrium, a three-story climbing wall, double gymnasium, teen/senior center, exercise studios, sauna and steam rooms, aquatic center with three pools, wellness/fitness center, XRKade active game room, childcare space, and other program areas.
Refreshments will be served, and members of the public will be eligible to win a 32-inch flat-panel television. YMCA memberships will be available at a reduced rate that day and are reciprocal with the Clark County Branch at 4812 Hamburg Pike in Jeffersonville.
In addition to the YMCA, the facility houses LifeSpan Resources and an office for the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County whose generous gift led the donations in the project coordinated by citizen volunteers who helped raise more than $7.3 million from 306 other individuals, businesses, and organizations.
For additional information, contact either branch of the Y through one phone number: (812) 283-9622.
