Channel Islands YMCAs to Open Free to the Public

Visit a facility Jan. 6-9 to learn how a membership can help you live healthier in the new year

Each of the Channel Islands YMCA facilities will be open free of charge to health seekers Jan. 6-9, providing support to local residents making new year’s resolutions to eat better, exercise more, lose weight, strengthen family connections and live better overall.

The power of a supportive community can be instrumental in achieving these goals. With the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility; you’re part of a cause.

With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back and supporting neighbors, Y membership gives you and your community the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Through the January Open House event, the staff of the Channel Islands YMCAs are seeking to foster and support sustained relationships with individuals and families who want to experience greater total health and well-being.

No contracts are required at the Y, and the YMCA Open Doors financial assistance program makes reaching these goals possible for everyone, including residents who are struggling to afford a healthy lifestyle.

The Channel Islands YMCA facilities are located in Camarillo, Lompoc, Montecito, Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez and Ventura and offer something for everyone, including a variety of classes, fun and educational events.

Click here or contact your neighborhood Y for details.

— Susan Sawyer is the communications and marketing director for the Channel Islands YMCA.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
