11-5-18 Press Release: Lincoln YMCA Hosting Veterans Day Open House


LINCOLN, NE [November 5, 2018] — In honor of Veterans Day, the YMCA of Lincoln invites all veterans and members of our armed forces and their immediate families to try any Lincoln YMCA location Sunday, November 11 and Monday, November 12 for the Y’s Veterans Day Open House. The entire month of November, the YMCA is waiving the Initiation Fee on all new membership joins.

With five branches located throughout Lincoln, all facilities feature an indoor pool with dedicated lap swim and recreational open swim times, as well as a full-size gymnasium. Open House attendees are encouraged to participate in one of the numerous Group Exercise class offerings including cardio and strength training, yoga, kickboxing, cycling, MixxedFit®, water aerobics, boot camp and more.

Child Watch is available for ages six weeks to ten years for up to two hours per child while their parent/guardian utilizes the facility.

“Spending time at the Y is a great way for families to have fun and connect. We want to take this time to personally thank our veterans and active duty service members for their contributions and sacrifices,” shared JP Lauterbach, COO of the YMCA of Lincoln.

The YMCA also invites all members and guests to show their appreciation for our military men and women by taking a moment to write a thank you note to those who serve. Note cards will be available at each branch and will be delivered to service men and women in the Lincoln community.

To attend, simply bring a valid photo ID to the Front Desk area. Minimum age is 19+ unless accompanied by an adult (19+).
