Channel Islands YMCAs Free During Open House Week

Starting Monday, let the facilities help you make the most of resolutions for the new year

During YMCA Open House Week, starting Monday, each of the Channel Islands YMCA facilities will be open for free to provide resources for residents seeking healthy lifestyles.

In the coming weeks, millions of Americans will tackle the annual ritual of making New Year’s resolutions. Eat better, exercise more, lose weight, quit smoking — those are among the perennial favorites. Some will succeed, some will stumble and others, come March, will join the ranks of those vowing to try again next year.

What is the secret to resolution success? Not going it alone!

The Channel Islands YMCA is encouraging people of all ages to make resolutions as a family this year and to connect with others. The power of a supportive community and family can be instrumental in achieving goals.

During the weeklong open house, the staff of the Channel Islands YMCA 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, and the YMCA Open Doors financial assistance program makes YMCA membership and programs available for everyone.

The Channel Islands YMCA facilities will be open free to the public Jan. 4-10:

» Camarillo, 3111 Village at the Park Drive, 805.484.0423

» Lompoc, 201 W. College Ave., 805.736.3483

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!
