Down East Family YMCA Open for FREE on Thanksgiving 

Before you take to the table for turkey and stuffing this Thanksgiving, you can get some exercise.

The Down East Family YMCA in Ellsworth will be open for everyone. Members and non-members can make some extra room for pie for free on Thanksgiving Day. The pool, weight room, and fitness room will be open. They’ll also have zumba and yoga classes.


“Well we thought it was a great idea for the community, it’s a special day, it’s keeping people healthy and you know we want everyone to enjoy the festivities so we can do a little bit to help on the other end,” said Down East Family YMCA CEO, Peter Farragher.

The YMCA will be open from 7:00 am to 11:00 am.
