17, 2003) There’s a whole lot of movin’ and shakin’ going on
down in Steele Creek! Trucks and pavers are quickly making room for
the newest addition to the YMCA of Greater Charlotte’s family.
Shakin' at the Steele Creek YMCA
The Steele Creek
YMCA at Ayrsley officially opens its doors on January 25th and
residents and corporations in the area are excited about the
prospect of a Y presence in Southwest Charlotte.
Under the strong
leadership of Mike Ferguson, the branch is quickly taking shape and
Grand Opening events are well underway. “I am so excited about this
branch and the impact it will have on the Steele Creek community.
Not only will we have state-of-the-art fitness equipment to keep
those New Year’s resolutions in check, but we are also in the
process of getting our family programs up and running as well as
reaching out to our Asian and Latino communities.”
The 17,000 square
foot facility located in the new Ayrsley shopping center will be
surrounded by fantastic restaurants and shopping and even a future
building, special care has gone in to making an environment that
will nourish the spirit as well as the body with vibrant colors,
greenery and bright open areas. With Fitlinxx, a computer based
interactive training system, yoga, Pilates and spinning classes and
free childwatch – the Steele Creek Y will offer something for just
drive is well underway and we have a myriad of opportunities
available for individuals, families as well as special corporate
incentives. We also have a unique opportunity with Charter
Memberships where businesses or individual/family members can place
a tile in our wall and leave a legacy for years to come! Charter
Members will also receive invitations to special celebrations and
“sneak preview” events.
We are also
excited about all of our Grand Opening Celebrations!
Plans are in the
works for a Corporate Open House and Social on Thursday, January
8th. We would love to showcase a few of the fabulous restaurants in
Ayrsley as well as open our doors to local businesses.
The Grand Opening
and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 25th.
This will be a family event with food, music and lots of
celebration! We are looking forward to generating a lot of
excitement for both the Steele Creek Y and the Ayrsley Town Center
within the community.
