What’s Going On At The Y?
SELF DEFENSE CLASS
Our first installment of a Self-Defense Class began on Monday, August 22! This has been a really “well attended” and “popular” class. Luther Jackson, our Karate Instructor will be starting another class beginning in late October. Classes will be conducted on Monday nights (6:00 – 7:00 PM). This class will run for approximately 8-10 weeks and will be open to any adult at any level. -Free for YMCA members – $30 for Non “Y” members. If interested, sign up at the Clarksville location.
We have 11 stationary bicycles at the Clarksville location! The “Cycle Room” is available for use at any time during the day, whether you want to take a class, or use the bicycles while watching a training video on the flat screen television. We are working on attempting to bring cycling to the Chase City location. We need a volunteer leader to “step up” and commit to teaching classes. Once we are able to secure a location for the class – this may become a reality!
Clarksville location: Stephanie Leichty teaches “Cycling 30” (High Intensity Class) on Tuesdays (5:30-6:00 PM) Sheila Galvin teaches “Cycling 60” Wednesdays (9:00–10:00 AM) & Thursdays (5:30-6:30 PM)

(Clarksville location) One of the banks of ceiling fans in the “Weight Training Area” has “malfunctioned”, we hope to have this repaired in the next few days. Until then, thank you for your patience!
“FAIR WEATHER BIKE CLUB”
The “Fair Weather Bike Club’s” next adventure ride is in the “planning stages” for either Friday, September 23rd, or Friday, September 30th. Please contact Richard Pulliam: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. The group normally meets at the Clarksville location of the Mecklenburg County YMCA and will travel to “High Bridge” in Prince Edward County (by car). The group will be enjoying the scenic vistas, followed by lunch. No Cost – open to YMCA members and “potential members”.
MECKLENBURG COUNTY YMCA ANNUAL CAMPAIGN
Asking for financial support is one of the “hardest thing” that a non-profit, charitable organization’s – Board of Directors has to do. This year, the Mecklenburg County YMCA set a goal of reaching at least $10,000 to supplement the purchasing of additional fitness equipment, and to bring in “new” and “vibrant” programs to our members (and to attract new members). Please consider donating to our 2016 Annual Campaign. If you have any questions, or would like to “give” a gift/donation please contact us at (434) 374-5858, or email@example.com Your “gift” WILL make a DIFFERENCE!
