Summer Water Safety
Keep your family safe this summer - please take a moment to review our summer water safety tips.
Summer Parking 
Summer camp has started and we anticipate heavy traffic during drop off between 8:30-9:00am. If the parking lot is congested or full, we recommend you consider parking in a nearby municipal lot. We have secured a limited number of spots offsite for staff in an effort to free up more space in our lot.

A school bus will be dropping campers off at our side door on Mead Place throughout the day so as always please use caution and drive safely on and around the Y property and the Mead Place neighborhood. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Rye Y Annual Maintenance Period: 
August 18 - Labor Day Several projects will take place - including painting, refinishing floors, cleaning our swimming pools and installing new lighting in the gymnasium. In the Wellness Center we plan to install new flooring, new Techno Gym strength equipment, some new cardio equipment and new dumbbells. Throughout this maintenance period there will be some minor disruptions and program space closures in certain areas. We will post a full schedule of the work and areas that may be disrupted in early August.

Spotlight on Togetherhood
By Denise Woodin, Director of Community Impact & Social Responsibility 

Rye Y Members Launch Community Service Program 

What does social responsibility look like to  you? At the Y, social responsibility - one of our three focus areas - takes many forms. It's financial aid that allows hard-pressed families to send their children to camp. It's donating pool time to local organizations. And most recently, it's community service that's led by our members.

 

Togetherhood is a national Y initiative that involves members of all ages in projects that benefit the communities we serve...and beyond. Over the next year, a Service Committee composed of 8 Rye Y members will identify, plan and implement at least four projects. Along the way, we'll create new friendships, build new partnerships and make a difference outside the walls of the Y. If this is what social responsibility looks like to you, contact me at denise@ryeymca.org and join us!
