Oswego Family YMCA Announcement

June 27, 2018


A message from Heather Appling, Associate Executive Director of the Oswego Family YMCA."

Dear Members,

Thank you for your membership and support of the Oswego Family YMCA. It has been our honor to provide a supportive environment where neighbors can learn, grow, and thrive together. I am sorry to share some difficult news with you.

As you may know, our member center leases space within the former Traughber Junior High School, which Oswego School District 308 has decided to sell. While we do not want to leave this location, after a thorough review including an assessment of nearby facilities for a potential alternative, we found no suitable option and have made the decision to close the Oswego Family YMCA on August 15, 2018.

We’re truly disappointed to be making this change, but are eager to continue serving you. Since the Oswego Family YMCA is just one of the YMCA of Metro Chicago’s 18 member centers, you have several options:

As a valued member, we hope you will continue your involvement with the YMCA. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 630.608.6707 with any questions or concerns.
