Marion-Polk Counties YMCA Service Club

Marion-Polk Counties YMCA Service Club has set a high example of voluntarism and dedication since 1927. The club is affiliated with the National and International Y Service Clubs.

Our motto is “To acknowledge the duty that accompanies every right.” Membership is open to any person 18 years and older, regardless of religion, race, or national origin. Couples and families are encouraged to join together.

Our revenue is derived from membership dues and fundraising events, like the YMCA Used Book Sale. Our club sponsors YMCA events such as the Good Friday Breakfast and work parties to enhance Camp Greider and Camp Silver Creek.
