  • Chilliwack Closes for Construction Renewal

    Posted 07/07/2017 12:55:28 PM by Kelly Walker

    On July 1st, the Chilliwack YMCA closed temporarily for one year. It’s an exciting time of change for our Y as we work together to build a new centre of community to meet the growing needs of Chilliwack adults, teens, children and families.

    Even though the building on Hocking Avenue is not open, the Y will continue to be very active in our community. We are happy to report that we have secured a handful of temporary locations so that we can continue to offer select programming to active members at no cost during the temporary closure.
