YMCA News & Updates Related to COVID-19
The Keene Family YMCA building will be closed until further notice. We are open online. Our annual Sneaker Ball has also been postponed. Please check back often for more information and updates.
From your Keene Family Y team: After taking the unprecedented step of closing the Y, except to families who rely on us for childcare, we are buoyed by your support. Not surprised, but heartened. Closing temporarily was a difficult, but necessary decision, part of a broad, responsible community response aimed at protecting the health and well-being of all our friends and neighbors. Your uninterrupted membership speaks volumes, and says, quietly but tellingly, “We stand by you.” At a time when so many feel like they need a shoulder to lean on or when we can take comfort in small signs of reassurance, your compassion strengthens our resolve. We thank you for being you.
