Y Knot Knit and Crochet Club
We are looking for experienced and beginner knitters and crocheters on Wednesday mornings to help us knit baby blankets and hats, mitts, scarves, and toques for those in need with yarn we have received from generous donors. All items created are for donation and will be distributed to those in need through our community partners. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others while giving back to your community! Yarn is supplied. Please bring your own knitting needles and crochet hooks. Members and non-members are welcome, book in advance each week on Active NET.
That’s right – we’re opening the Steam Rooms! Starting September 13th, Steam Rooms in the Men’s and Women’s change rooms will be open for up to a maximum of TWO members at a time. Masks are not required but members must maintain social distancing when in the Steam Rooms.
Starting September 13th, towel service will once again be available at a cost of $15 per month. To inquire about adding towel service to your membership, call 519-376-0484 ext. 0, email email@example.com or stop by our Welcome Desk to speak to our Customer Service staff.
Starting September 13th, Day Passes are once again available for residents of Grey Bruce. For those looking to attend the Y more than once per month, remember that a membership is more cost effective!
