UPDATE FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SCOTT BALKCUM 

Aug. 14, 2023 — Thank you for your continued support. We are excited to share with you the good work we’re doing at our YMCA. For 16 years our pool has been a haven for you; whether you came for swim lessons, aqua aerobics, to lap or let the kids swim, you were baptized, or learned scuba diving- our pool has been there for you. Currently, we’re in our 2nd week of being shut down for renovations. Those renovations include:
  • Replacing the Dehumidification Unit, this controls our air temperature and ensures everyone is comfortable.
  • We’re getting our pool re-surfaced and re-tiled. This makes our pool look and feel brand-new once again.
In total, our re-investment back into the Jeep Rogers Family YMCA is over half of a million dollars. We cannot fathom to do this without your support and patronage of our YMCA. We’re proud to share that our project is on schedule, and we’ll soon be able to share more updates and a better timeline to reopening. We’re grateful for all of the contractors safely and quickly working to get our pool back open to you. Again, we thank you for staying with us and remaining patient throughout this major renovation project, for you.
It’s a great day to be a member of the Columbia YMCA,
Scott Balkcum
