Calendar of Events

There's always something going on at the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA, whether you're a child, family, teen, adult or older adult, we have plenty of fun activities for you! And, many are open to non-members!

The Power to End Stroke
Apr 23 @ 6:00 pm – 6:45 pm

The question of how to tell if you are having a stroke has been in the news lately as actor Luke Perry’s passing has us all asking the same question: How could this happen to someone so young?

The Power to End Stroke is an education and awareness campaign seeking to reduce the incidence of stroke. It celebrates and embraces the culture, energy, creativity, and lifestyles of Americans and empowers them to take charge of their health. Please join us to learn how to prevent, treat, and beat stroke so you can live your best life! This is a free community program open to all. Guest speaker is Connie Mastrangelo, BSN, Stroke Program Coordinator.
