Active Older Adults
The YMCA of Greater St. Louis has assembled a fabulous collection of classes and events with emphasis on satisfying older adults’ interests, meeting their needs and using their abilities. There’s no such thing as “old school” at the Y where there’s a program to meet your needs and your schedule.
