The Ottumwa YMCA is celebrating Valentine's Day all week long.
As you enter the gym, you'll see the lobby is decked out with red, pink and white decor. "We Love Our Members Week" is a way for staff to show appreciation for Y members. On Monday the Y gave out free water bottles. Tuesday it was free chair massages, and Wednesday the Kids Cove was free. Parents can drop their kids off at the kids cove while they workout.
â??Tomorrow is bring a friend day, so you can bring a friend and workout together, and that's really been a positive piece as well, and friday we've got some treats and some things that we're gonna be giving out to all the members that come to the Y, just to workout, so it's been a great chance for us as a staff team just to celebrate, decorate a bit on this Valentine's week and tell everyone we love our members,â?? Tom Sisler, executive director, said.
Saturday is the Y's annual love dive, where kids ages 3 to 12 collect hearts in the pool. To register for that click here.
