Mankato YMCA to Temporarily Close

Published On: March 16, 2020Categories: Uncategorized

To Members of the Mankato Family YMCA:

The Mankato Family YMCA has been working diligently to determine our plan of action in regards to the Coronavirus. After lengthy consultation with leaders from YMCA’s across the state and with Mankato Family YMCA Board leadership, a decision has been reached.

The Mankato Family YMCA will close its doors at the end of the business day on Monday, March 16th. We will remain closed, for now, until Monday, March 30th.  All YMCA programming and events will also be cancelled. As we approach that date we will determine if staying closed longer makes sense.

This was a tough decision, but we feel it is the best decision at this time.  The health and well-being of our members and community is of utmost concern, and closing now is the socially responsible thing to do.

As we have done in the past, the YMCA will work with public officials to determine how our assets may be utilized to support the community. 

Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Together, we can accomplish much moving forward.

John Kind

Mankato Family YMCA Executive Director
