Christmas in July at Old Town/Orono YMCA 

Catherine Pegram

The Old Town/Orono YMCA is getting into the Christmas spirit a little early this year. The Y is hosting a Christmas in July celebration this Saturday. It includes a Family Fun Day, a garage sale, a dance fitness class called Zumba, a kid’s movie night and a Zumba street dance. Organizers say they want families to come out and enjoy some time together. But they also want to encourage people to help the Y fulfill its Christmas wish list. Marlyse Waskiewicz, a fitness trainer, says “We need playground balls, it can be a simple as that. We need volleyball nets, a scoreboard, ranges from there. Either someone can go and buy those things or they can donate the money to use and then we can go and buy those things.”A Christmas tree in the front lobby is loaded with gift ideas for the Y. The Christmas in July party gets started at 9 o’clock Saturday morning with the Family Fun Day. Tickets are 3-dollars a person or 10-dollars for a family. The garage sale is both Saturday and Sunday from 8 to 2 and the kids movie night and zumba dance are set for Saturday night at 8:30pm.
