BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A big Happy Birthday to the Y of South Palm Beach County as it’s looking rather good at 40. A major event is planned and everyone is invited.
Read on for the details:
The YMCA of South Palm Beach County is celebrating their 40th birthday with a Back-to-School Bash from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 4 at both the Boca Raton and Boynton Beach locations. The free community event marks the start of the back-to-school season and kicks off celebrations commemorating the YMCA of South Palm Beach County’s 40 years in operation. As part of the Y’s initiative for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the event will help parents begin thinking about ways to keep their children both physically and intellectually active once school begins this fall.
The Bash will feature family fun events, including door prizes, a DJ, bounce houses, water activities, field games and much more. In addition, new members that sign up at the event August 4 will enjoy the special discounted rate of a $40 joining fee (in honor of the 40 year celebration this year) and members who register for fall after-school programs will have their registration fees waived by signing up the day of the event.
“Fun and educational activities are available year round at the YMCA, and this fall in our after-school programs,” said Kery Knutson, marketing and membership development director of the YMCA of South Palm Beach County. “By combining play with academics, after-school programs promote creativity and a love of learning that both kids and parents can enjoy.”
The YMCA of South Palm Beach County will host several events in commemoration of its 40th Birthday. Highlights include an ice cream and cake party for the YMCA of South Palm Beach County summer camp kids on August 3, the Back-To-School Bash on August 4 in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach, and a birthday celebration honoring the 100th birthday of Countess Henrietta de Hoernle in September, whose contributions helped build the Child Development and Youth Center at the Peter Blum Family YMCA of Boca Raton. Lastly, on October 4, the YMCA of South Palm Beach County will kick off their annual campaign, where their 40 years committed to the community will surely be a focus.
