YMCA Aerial 2018Greene County is about to get healthier in mind, body and spirit. The Xenia YMCA is hosting a series of hard hat tours on Saturday, October 20th from 11-3pm where community members can tour the new facility, speak with staff and sign up to become a Y member. In addition, those who sign up will have their joiner’s fee waived, will be given a certificate for a free youth program and will also join the new Y at the old Xenia YMCA membership rate before the membership price increase on November 18th.

The Hard Hat Tours will be open to the public and are completely free of charge. No RSVP or sign up is required. Guests should park at the building’s parking lot located at 336 S. Progress Dr. in Xenia. All guests should wear close-toed shoes as this is a live construction site.

Dale Brunner, President & CEO of the YMCA of Greater Dayton, says he is excited to bring the Y’s mission to the community. “The Y is more than a place to work out — we’re a place that builds and strengthens community bonds. The New Xenia Y is a perfect manifestation of what
happens when a community comes together with partners from across the Miami Valley to form something truly great. We can’t wait to share our building’s progress with you.”

The Xenia YMCA will share the building with Central State, Clark State, Kettering Health Network, and the Xenia Adult and Recreation Services Center. The tours will cover all portions of the building and display the building’s rapid progress and expanded services.

The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Ys engage men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.

The YMCA of Greater Dayton was established in 1870 and now offers ten YMCA branches and one residential camp in the Miami Valley. www.daytonymca.org
