July is a great time to be a member at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA!
If you’re not already a member, we will be waiving the joining fee in this month for anyone who brings in a donation of school supplies. Stop in at the front desk to make your donation and have your joining fee waived.
Did you know the Y also has a Membership for All Program, which ensures no one is turned away due to the inability to pay the monthly membership? The application process is simple, and the front desk staff is happy to walk you through the process.
Once a member, you can enjoy all the member social events this month. On Wednesday, July 11, the Y will be hosting a hot dog social from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Celebrate the summer as staff serves hot dogs, chips, and lemonade.
On Thursday, July 19 at 1 p.m., gather at the Y to enjoy our Cards and Coffee event. Make new friends or bring your own card-loving group to socialize while playing your favorite card games.
If you’re looking for a more active activity, the Downtown Scavenger Hunt will take place Friday, July 20 at 1 p.m., if weather permits. The scavenger hunt will start at the Y and lead you on a thrilling trip through downtown Mattoon.
Do you have a friend who is interested in the Y? Bring them to class with you on Monday, July 23 for our free class pass day. On Thursday, July 26, the Y will host bingo at 10:15 a.m. Enjoy fun, friends, and possibly win a round or two of this classic game. Come join us and see why summer is in full swing at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA!
