Springtime Fitness Plans

Spring is also a great time to refer a friend or bring someone new to the YWCA. Between May 21st and May 31st  we are offering  a special deal. With each referral that purchases a new adult or senior membership along with the special 3-month
physical plan (June, July & August for just $45); members can qualify for a $5 voucher to use toward their next YWCA purchase. So bring a friend for fitness! Just a way we can say “Thank you” for all of your continued support while helping our members spring into spring!
