Celebrating this Milestone!
As you may have heard, our two year renovation project has been completed! Through member surveys, focus groups, and facility usage, members told us in no uncertain terms that Countryside YMCA needed to change; we listened. We are now in the best shape of our existence, and we’re excited about the positive impact our facility will continue to have on the overall health of our community.
