Socialization is crucial to helping Veterans’ bodies respond to stress and prior trauma. Once a month the YMCA will open our doors to all Veterans, who want to share a snack together, socialize and partake in recreation activities.

Guest speaker from a Veterans focused organization. Following the speaker the Saginaw YMCA is open for all Veterans and their families to utilize the facility.

Mark your calendar for the future months events. The Learn and Leisure Series is only one program in a series of programs that make up the YMCA Veterans Health Program.

On Tuesdays, Veterans are also welcome to use the Y facility for the day.

Note to Experts Interested in Providing a Learning Lecture at the Y:

Our members and neighbors call us THEIR Y, we call them our greatest asset. In the Saginaw community for nearly 150 years, the YMCA of Saginaw, welcomes businesses to schedule use of our community room for presentations that will benefit our members, as well as the Saginaw community.

If the business owners wish, they can provide a light lunch or coffee and a snack.
We can recommend a cafe nearby that actually delivers with 24+ hours notice.
Try Dawn of a New Day at (989) 401-0269 and ask for catering information.

There is no fee for use of the community room itself for this purpose.

We also would request the presenter share a flyer with the information regarding the event. They could have RSVP’s go directly to their business or we could take them here via our program registration system at the Y on their behalf.
