The Mankato Family YMCA is once again hosting Extra Trimmings on Thanksgiving  Day. The Y will be open and free to the public from 7am – 11am if guests bring a donation of  an item for the Echo Food Shelf to the YMCA.

All areas of the YMCA will be open with the exception of the Aquatics area; however locker  rooms will still be available. Child watch will also be available during the Y’s open hours for  members and guests.  

In addition to the open facility, members and guests will have an opportunity to check out a  variety of fitness classes taking place throughout the morning. Classes include GRIT,  BODYPUMP, Pilates, Cycle and more.  

“Come join us at the YMCA on Thanksgiving morning,” said Stacy Jackson, Director of Healthy  Living. “It is the perfect opportunity to get yourself ready for all that comes along with  celebrating the holiday.” 

For members of the community who wish to check out the Y before joining, Thanksgiving’s  Extra Trimmings is the place to start. The Mankato Family YMCA also has a membership  promotion going on until December 31st. All new members who join will pay no joining fee and  will receive their first month at the Y free!
