The YMCA in Kalona has just reached the milestone of 1,000 members.

The City of Kalona had set a goal to the staff at the YMCA, when they opened their doors in August, to reach 1,000 members before 2019 and they accomplished the feat in late October. Association Director of YMCA Washington County Amy Schulte says the impact goes beyond the numbers, “We see families coming in together and working out, playing basketball, doing different activities in the facility. I think it’s great to have that overall health and wellness option for the community.” According to Schulte, the YMCA nationally aspires to have around 10% of the local community enrolled as a member, the Kalona YMCA is currently sitting near 35%.
