Temporary Building Closure


In compliance with the mandated closure order from the state of Pennsylvania, we will close our facility effective Saturday, December 12, for all indoor fitness, pool and program use. This temporary closure will continue through Monday, January 4, 2021 at 8:00 AM. We are preparing to re-open our membership branches at that time.

First and foremost, we want to thank you for supporting our Y and our staff who proudly serve you every day. Your continued membership and program enrollment means we can continue to be here supporting you, your neighbor, and your community. 

I strongly believe that following our core values and acting responsibly guides us to making the best decisions for our communities. In remaining here for you, below outlines our programs: 

  • Our licensed Child Care, A.C.H.I.E.V.E., and A.F.T.E.R. Programs will continue to operate, providing these important services for our working families.
  • While our physical building may be closed, members will find the majority of our fitness classes will continue to be offered virtually on our live wellness platform exclusively for our members. Visit wbymca.org for full information.
  • We will also supplement fitness programming with additional offerings in our private Facebook group. Please request access to this group at www.facebook.com/wvymca and turn on notifications to receive all updates.

These policies could change at any time as more information is received from the State of Pennsylvania. Please continue to check our website for changes and additional information. Please also keep your eye out for continued communications to our members for important updates. 

Have a question regarding your membership or need assistance? Telephones will be answered by Welcome Center staff, Monday-Friday, 11am – 6pm. Give us a call at 570-823-2191 or email welcomecenter@wbymca.org 

As we approach the holiday season, we hope you will continue to actively engage with our current programs and services. We thank you for being a member and for sticking with us during this continued time of uncertainty. 

Yours in good health, 

Jim Thomas 

Executive Director
