Marion YMCA & Community Rec Center

Steps for the Marion YMCA pool. It has been a discussion item since we opened and now with $500 lead gifts from Carol Lensing and Frances Renfer we are launching a campaign to raise another $4,000 to help purchase the stairs for the Marion pool.

Thank you to Carol and Frances for launching this initiative and for their gifts making this $5,000 campaign a reality!

Our onsite staff can answer questions or help if you are interested in donating. You can also give online through our online portal.
