New YMCA Board Chair Maryam Zar wrote in the Palisades-Malibu YMCA May 14 newsletter:
“This Y has a long history of great contributions from committed community members and I expect the years ahead to build on that tradition. I look forward to the year ahead and engaging all stakeholders.”
This summer the Palisades-Malibu YMCA is offering a free membership for teens ages 12 to 18. That membership will include access to all 26 branches. Those teens who have memberships will not be charged for the months that membership is free click here.
