YMCA to Waive Membership Requirement Next Week

Next week, the YMCA of Greater Louisville will open its doors for one week to all residents of the area, without a membership requirement.YMCA of Greater Louisville President and CEO Steve Tarver says it’s an effort to increase the well-being of the whole community. He says residents of Jefferson, Bullitt and Oldham counties in Kentucky and Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana can have full access to the YMCA and its classes and services with just a photo ID.“This is the broadest-based, farest-reaching, widest-armed effort we’ve ever done like this," says Tarver, "so we’re looking forward to seeing what the response will be, how we can learn from that, and how we can build it into the future.”Tarver says they’ve increased staff for next week and have more introductory classes for newcomers. He says they have no idea how many new people will enter the doors of their neighborhood branches, but they hope the numbers are in the thousands.
