The Western Community Center YMCA in Barry, Illinois is scheduled to open on August 1, 2012.  In anticipation of that big day there will be an open house tonight from 5:00pm until 8:00pm for area residents to get the first look at the completed facility.

The Western Community Center YMCA is a branch of the Quincy Family YMCA Association much like that of the YMCA in Mt. Sterling, Illinois. The facility includes an aerobics center, wellness center, child care nursery and two family changing rooms with showers.  Memberships will be available for purchase tonight during the open house as well as ongoing once open. There will be snacks as well as free blood pressure screening courtesy of Illini Hospital of Pittsfield at the facility. For the town of Barry, this facility has been long in the waiting.  Congrats to all who made it happen.
