Pardon the Dust!

12/9/13 Update: The problems appear to now be fully resolved. Thank you for your patience.

Our hosting provider, Dreamhost, performed emergency maintenance several days ago on our web server. This maintenance involved migration to a new server. Since that time, various things have not been working properly, most notably:

  • E-mails from the site do not work (user registration / contact us form).
  • Images uploaded with stories are not displaying.

We would like to get these problems fixed as soon as possible, but that depends on Dreamhost responding to our ticket requests in an adequate manner. Keep your fingers crossed.

In an effort to provide strong, effective programs, the Northfield Area Family YMCA is conducting a community needs assessment. We want to hear from you.

Based on this community needs assessment, the Y, in partnership with other organizations, will design and deliver new programs and services that address critical issues in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The focus is to identify needs that are not currently addressed in our community.
