Richard G. Snyder YMCA to shut down week of August 19

From Monday, August 19, 2013 through Sunday, August 25, 2013, the Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus will be closed for annual cleaning. This time will allow the staff to thoroughly clean every area of the facility.

“Some people may question why we need a week to clean,” said Joely Beeker, CEO, “but even with our maintenance staff, certain things need done when members are not in the building. We’ve been in our new facility for a year and there are things that need done to get it back to how it was when we first opened.”

Some of these tasks include draining and scrubbing the pools, moving workout equipment to scrub floors and touch up painting. Large maintenance projects will also be completed during this time. The wood floors in the gym and upstairs exercise room will be refinished as well and those rooms will remained closed until September 3.

“Closing the building for a week may be inconvenient for some, but overall it is for the members’ benefit,” said Beeker. “Our fall programs begin the first week of September and our staff is excited that the facility will be in the best shape possible for our members.”

RGS Y will return to its regular schedule on Monday, August 26, 2013. For questions call the RGS Y at 724-545-9622.

The Y organization in Armstrong County began nearly 150 years ago in 1867 and belongs to the national Y organization. In 2012, the Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus opened its doors in a new 27,000 sq. ft., 6.2 million dollar facility on Water Street in Kittanning, beginning an exciting new chapter in the local organization’s history. The RGS Y is committed to strengthening the Armstrong County community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
