FOLLOWUP: Fauntleroy YMCA expanding hours starting next week

The West Seattle/Fauntleroy YMCA (WSB sponsor) is taking the first step toward expanding its hours, a key community request in the past few months’ discussion of the location’s future. Here’s the flyer in circulation today:

West Seattle/Fauntleroy Y branch executive Cleveland King tells WSB that the April 1 change will be a “soft open,” giving members the chance to adjust their schedules to new hours (50 percent more than the hours Fauntleroy’s been open in recent years). He says they’ll also be announcing new programs when the expanded hours are finalized in mid-April. And he says community members can help by showing support: “As we continue to grow, we will need the community to re-engage with our Fauntleroy YMCA.”

    Thank you to the Y for making this leap! Great news. West Seattle, come and reconnect with your neighborhood Y. It has been an anchor organization in our community for more than 100 years. The Y needs our help to rebuild all the programming and staff that was lost during the pandemic. So re-activate your membership, reconnect with old Y friends and invite them to do the same. If you’re new to West Seattle, come and join! The only gym in town that’s also a social service agency. It’s a first employer and source of volunteer hours for so many teens in our community. It’s a place for parents to bring their kids and take a moment for themselves; a place to model healthy living for your kids. And a place that opens its doors widely to ensure everyone can participate. (Re)discover this jewel in West Seattle and at Fauntleroy.

    First day of the Fauntleroy YMCA soft expansion of hours in the afternoon, and it’s a ghost town. Zero people here. Get the word out about their new hours- otherwise the Fauntleroy location will definitely close!!

    Great news! Hopefully a success and will lead to Saturday hours.
