A new start for YMCA

EUGENE – The Eugene-Springfield YMCA opened its new center on Saturday, as clouds parted and sunlight smiled down on a huge crowd of supporters and well-wishers. The official ribbon-cutting featured a variety of speakers, singing, and plenty of cheering. The facility officially opened on Monday, Dec. 18, and serves the entire southern Willamette Valley. According to YMCA leaders, “kids learn to use a 3D printer, play dungeons and dragons, and run off some energy on the basketball court.” The center offers group fitness classes for all ages and an expansive weight room/workout area. The building is at 600 E. 24th Ave., Eugene and is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in December – hours will expand in January. It will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
