DRESS DRIVE
 
We have partnered with No Glass Slippers to support their prom dress drive. We will collect prom dresses from March 1 through March 15 to benefit local girls attending their high school prom. New or gently used dresses will be accepted at any of our nine YMCA locations.

 
OUR NEW LOOK
We brighten the lives of those we serve on a daily basis, so it is exciting to also brighten our Americana YMCA with new signage! Please visit the Y to see the new signage in person.

 
DIABETES ALERT DAY
 
March 26 is Diabetes Alert Day, and the Y wants everyone to know that one in three Americans are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, a serious disease that can lead to complications such as kidney disease, blindness and amputations. Diabetes does not have to be permanent; with healthy lifestyle changes, it can be prevented or delayed. The Y offers the Diabetes Prevention Program to help individuals learn and adopt healthy habits that have been proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.Click hereto learn more.

 
MEMBER APPRECIATION DAY
Our member appreciation day is March 26. We want to thank members for being a part of the Y family. Please stop by the front desk during your visit to pick up a Y koozie*.
