The Dryades YMCA will be closed until further notice due to government and CDC recommendations related to COVID-19. We will notify members as soon as we are able to reopen. Check our Facebook/Instagram and website periodically for updates.

April 3, 2020

Dear Valued YMCA Member:

Having to temporarily close has put us in a challenging position, and we are concerned about our ability, as a Y, to continue to serve and come out on the other side of this in a position to help the community we cherish.

What we know for sure is when this pandemic finally starts to slow, the services we provide at the Y will be needed like never before. Considering all that needs to be done to help our community get back on its feet and healthy has made it difficult to figure out the best course of action for our members and staff.

As you know, we have automatically placed a hold on all membership fees for April 2020. Moving forward please consider one of the three (3) options below:

Option 1 : Support the Y and our Community. If you choose this option, you do not have to do anything but accept our deep gratitude. Your fee will be drafted as before. This option will keep your membership going. We understand that situations change quickly. If you elect to keep your membership going now, but need to change later, it will be possible to freeze at any time.

Option 2 : Go Above and Beyond - Make a donation of any amount to our Y's Annual Campaign. Help to guarantee that when our building is opened again, we will have the resources in place to offer children who need it most their best summer ever, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

Option 3 : Request to choose to freeze your membership indefinitely.

Please complete the Google form
here OR call 504.708.2671 and leave a voicemail with your contact information. Our staff is working remotely from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday, and we will do our best to return your call within 24 hours during those times. We appreciate your patience.

We truly believe together we are stronger. We look forward to seeing you again at the Y, but until then, please use the programming online, be safe, stay home and stay healthy.
