Community Day at the Y: Event Recap

On Saturday, January 7, McGaw YMCA welcomed members of the community with an afternoon filled with tours, demonstrations, and activities. 

The McGaw YMCA celebrated its commitment to strengthening community with its first Community Day of 2023 on January 7. Members of the Evanston community were able to explore the YMCA for free and enjoy demo classes of some of our most popular Group Fitness classes like Zumba®, Indoor Cycling, Step Aerobics, and more. 

Community Days are hosted at the Y on select dates throughout the year. Community Days provide a fun-filled day for community members to try the Y for free. This is also a great time for McGaw YMCA members to bring their friends to sample all the Y has to offer!

The focus for the January 7 Community Day was family fun, fitness, and inspiration with opportunities to connect with new people, develop new skills, and explore new interests. The 4-lane pool was open for family swim time and trial swim classes for kids ages 3-13. The Sebring-Lewis Center was filled with energetic kids enjoying Family Fun Gym Time and clinics. Throughout the day, friendly staff offered tours of the facilities, including MetaMedia, the YMCA’s digital media center and maker education program designed for middle-school youth.
