Duneland Y to Waive Joiner's Fee

On Saturday, December 15th the Duneland Family YMCA will host an open house from 2:00-4:00 PM. Prospective members are invited to take a tour and receive a waived joiner's fee, savings of $50, if they become a member during the open house.

Members of the Y receive discounts on youth sport programs, complimentary fitness classes, complimentary child care while exercising, and discounts on massage therapy. Despite the wide array of amenities available to members, a membership at the Y gives families a place to create memories.

Lindsay Utnik shared, "In March 2011, my son and I joined the YMCA. I started working out regularly and participated in the fitness classes. I met a lot of new people and the staff was helpful and friendly. Now a year later, I have lost 35 pounds, feel great, and have tons of energy. Last year, my son participated in the Youth Basketball League. He loved the experience so much that I can never get him out of the gym. He always says, 'just one more mommy' which turns into 20 more. He now wants to be a professional basketball player when he grows up."

For information about membership please visit or call (219) 926-4204. The Duneland Family YMCA is located at 215 Roosevelt Street in Chesterton. As a partner agency of the United Way of Porter County, financial assistance is available to those who are facing financial difficulty but would still like to become members of the Y.
