The Baker County YMCA and Integrative Physical Therapy will hold a community open house on April 26, 2018 from 5PM – 7PM. at the YMCA Fitness and Education Center on Pocahontas Road to share their plans to add a gymnasium, multi-purpose space, and a wellness center.
“Baker County needs additional gymnasium space and improved wellness options for youth and adults,” explained YMCA CEO Heidi Dalton. “We are excited to partner with Integrative Physical Therapy and engage the community in this important project to keep our kids active and continue to improve the health and well-being of Baker County.”
Two short presentations are planned in order to meet various schedules. The first will begin at 5:30PM and the second at 6:30PM. Optional tours of the current facility will be given before and after each session. YMCA Staff and Board Members and Integrative Physical Therapy staff will share preliminary drawings and explain the project, gather feedback, and answer questions.
Presenters will also explain why the addition is needed and how it will be used. A report on funding efforts for the project will also be included. Schedules for spring sports, classes and events will be available.
Strengthening community is our cause. There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. In Baker County, the Y has the presence and partnerships not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change. For more than four decades, the Baker County YMCA has served the children, adults, and families of Baker County and surrounding communities. It is a place for people of all ages to come together and improve their quality of life. Strong communities don’t just happen. They’re the result of steady leadership and stewardship of strong values. We make a difference by focusing on three key areas: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. By investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors, the Baker County YMCA ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.
