LYNCH/VAN OTTERLOO YMCA RENOVATION 

To Our Members and Participants: Thank you for your patience and for supporting the Y during our renovation.  We are scheduled to re-open our NEW Welcome Center and Kids Club on Monday, June 26th! 

Starting Monday,  we are planning to open the main entrance and we will be back to normal operations. Here is what you should expect at your new and improved reimagined YMCA:  

Get in a Great Workout – Our newly expanded functional training space has been well received over the past week and we have more equipment coming.  In the next few days we will be adding our weighted sled, another weighted tire and more storage racks to keep our new equipment organized and easily accessible.

A Concierge Experience – As you enter the new main lobby you will be greeted by our welcome center concierge.  Our staff is here to welcome you and help you by answering any questions while helping you navigate around the facility.

Member Service Stations to Better Serve You – For your privacy, we will move all business transactions from the welcome center desk into our two member service stations.  Our staff will be able to help you with program enrollments, payments, transfers and more. All can be done so with more privacy and shorter transaction times. 

Grab a Snack or Catch up with a Friend – Or perhaps meet a new one at our new café counter directly across from Dario’s Café. Our new café counter offers additional cafe seating in our gathering space.

A New Kid's Club Experience – Our new Kid’s Club offers your child more variety, activities and fun.  New learning stations, dramatic play zones, Lego wall and more await them in their new space!  Your child will love it! 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Gerald B. MacKillop, Jr., Executive Director at mackillopg@northshoreymca.org or at 781.631.9622.
