LATEST UPDATE as of Friday Nov. 24
Good Evening, YMCA Members, Volunteers, and Staff! We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!
Despite the short work week, our team has been extra busy bringing life back to 62 Turner Street! Due to the flooding incident this past Sunday, Nov. 19, we have been making repairs and upgrades to our heating and electrical systems. This has truly been a community effort, and we could not be more grateful to everyone who has come out to help, nor to all of you for your patience and understanding. A big thank you to the following partners for their hard work and dedication:
Auburn Fire Department
The City of Auburn
The State of Maine
Maine Fuel Board
YWCA of Lewiston
We will open this Monday, November 27 at noon. Please check our website to confirm as this date approaches.
All of our programming will return with the exception of Aquatics. To anyone participating in Twin City Swim Team, please refer to Coach Tom for updates. He and Steve are working hard to find a temporary practice location. All current swim lessons have been canceled moving forward, and participants will be reimbursed starting next week. Future programming will be planned and scheduled based on the progress of repairs to the pool and its systems.
For those members who participate in Adult Lap Swim, the YWCA in Lewiston has graciously offered their pool to any Y member free of charge. Please visit their website for available lap times.
We would also like to thank the Y at CMMC Team for extending their hours this past week and hosting extra Group Exercise classes. Starting Monday at noon, all Group Ex. classes will resume their normal schedule at 62 Turner St.
While we have been working hard to restore heat and electricity to the Y, our facility is still without hot water. We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask for your patience while we continue working on this issue. Please be advised if planning to shower!
Both Childcare and After-School Care will return Monday. Please note, Childcare will not be available before noon. If you have specific questions, please call or email Tina Jennings.
Again, we thank you for your kind words, patience, and continuous support. We are very excited to see you all on Monday!
