Lakewood Family YMCA Halloween Party
The YMCA’s annual Halloween Party will take place on Friday, October 26th. This is a great opportunity for your little ones to show off this year’s awesome Halloween costumes, while we bring the community together for a night of fun games, tasty candy, and great times.
Cost for this event is free. We will begin accepting candy donations on October 1st at the Lakewood YMCA to help pass out on party night. We hope to see you and your family here!
We are actively looking for volunteers for the positions of Head Coach and Assistant Coach for our youth basketball leagues. You do not need to be a member of the Y to be a volunteer, but you are required to submit to a background check. This goes a long way to ensuring proper coaching, and to develop teamwork skills for all of our children.
We are very thankful for your interest in YMCA programs, and we look forward to you joining us as we continue to build strong communities in our area. If you have any questions contact Program Director Chris Switzer, Lakewood YMCA @ 216-521-8400, or by e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org
