Dear Friends of the Y,

Thank you for your continued support and friendship as we begin another program year “living our cause.” You and your family are truly at the heart of the matter as we invite you to experience our new and improved classes and programs. Some of these include an exploration into Mindfulness Studies; comprehensive workout sessions on our all new cycle bikes; Yoga, Massage Therapy and so much more within our newly created and sophisticated Yoga Studio…All providing you with a sense of peace, comfort, and above all, a place where you can feel “grounded.” Don’t miss a moment of all that is to come in the months ahead at the Wyckoff Family YMCA – Where Your Moments Matter.

With warm regards,
Joy Vottero
Executive Director
