YMCA experiments with longer hours

Posted: Apr. 29, 2014 11:38 am Updated: May. 8, 2014 12:15 pm

The Quincy Family YMCA is considering keeping the facility open round the clock Monday through Thursday due to several requests to keep the facility open later so that those that work different shifts can make it to the gym.

To determine if there is enough interest to move forward, the Y will hold a trial week May 5-9.

This trial week will be open to people age 18 and older. Cost is free for members. Non-members may purchase a $15 week pass.

The Quincy Family YMCA will allow users to be in the facility from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. with full access to the Wellness Center with cardio and strength equipment, indoor track, free weight room, open gym, racquetball courts, saunas and locker rooms.

The pool area will be closed.

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
