Fall Program Preview

This fall our Y has several brand new programs to help you build spirit, mind and body. Just check out our new program guide. So many, in fact, that we thought it might make sense to put together a series of free trial classes to allow you to experience them first-hand before signing up for the session. 

From October 10-22 we’re inviting members and non-members alike to give our new programs a try for free. 

Current members of the Keene Family YMCA can sign up for the classes they’d like to attend through their Y app.

Don’t have a current membership? That’s ok – just give our Welcome Center a call at 603.352.6002 and they’ll sign you up.

Class sizes are limited so be sure to sign up soon!
