Monroe YMCA
« on: November 21, 2014, 03:04:19 PM »

Curious as a non-profit...   

I saw a sign out front saying they've donated 26k to the community


I always had the impression they were the Country Club of the West in Monroe...

I know they have programs for children and I think even free memberships to kids who qualify.

But if you don't those memberships are pretty darn expensive.

For paying members, it's a $75 join fee, then $60/month for a family of four. Most classes aren't free, but cost between $20 and $40 at the "discounted" rate for members on top of the monthly fee.

They taught my kids to swim, and we had some good times, but it's not worth that much per month, IMO. They do hire some very nice young folks as counselors.

**Edited to remove negative comment. Not fair considering there's no one present to defend.

Don't they also get some funding from the United Way?  Please correct me if I am wrong

$60 a month does sound a little steep.
But I suppose if you used their facilities frequently, it might be worth it.

There is an ad on the radio where BC/BS also donated money to schools, and they are non-profit too. Charge outrageous premiums and pass the money out wherever they want.

Prof, are you trying to lure Jan Jay back in here for my entertainment pleasure?

I didn't know Jan was a participant - but that would be interesting reading...   (I have had dealings with him - and he is an interesting pain in the arse when he wants to be)

Regarding the Y -
I used to play racquetball - and had to pay a fee,
while those who used the pool didn't?

Pool costs lots more than a racquetball court to maintain...  8*
