Caroline YMCA plans weekend events
The Caroline Family YMCA will host two days of open house events this weekend.
On Saturday, there will be several events at the YMCA’s storefront in The Shops at Ladysmith Village, 17495 Jefferson Davis Highway in Ruther Glen. Sunday, the events will be in the Ladysmith Village Clubhouse, 17276 Camellia Drive. Both days, the events from noon to 5 p.m.
There will be activities for all ages, face painting, crafts, a group fitness demonstration, treats, a visit from Santa, caroling and tours of the new YMCA facility currently under construction.
The Y is teaming up with the U.S. Marines to collect toys for needy children in Caroline County. With the donation of a new, unwrapped toy worth at least $25, the joining fee for a YMCA membership will be waived.
The Y is under construction and is expected to open in February.
