YMCA of Lincoln to Show Appreciation to Local Educators

LINCOLN, Neb. — During the next two weeks, the YMCA of Lincoln will be saying thank you to all local educators by offering free admittance to any Lincoln YMCA location March 10-24. The promotion is good for all elementary, middle or high school faculty or staff or any college or university staff with a valid ID.


“The teachers in Lincoln and surrounding communities play such a vital part in shaping the futures of our youth,” commented Barb Bettin, President and CEO of the YMCA of Lincoln. “Because the mission of the YMCA is to nurture the potential of every child, we feel it’s appropriate to show our appreciation to those who exemplify this mission each and every day in our community’s classrooms.”


All educators and their immediate family (up to two adults and dependent children) can show their educator ID at any YMCA of Lincoln branch between March 10-24 to receive a one-week pass. In addition, any educator wishing to sign up for a membership during that time will have their joiner fee waived.
