Eleven years ago, the YMCA had 4,000 members. Now, they have more than 14,000. According to Minot YMCA Development Director Amy Moen, about 20 people sign up each day. But with more people joining, is the YMCA equipped to handle more people?
"We just purchased 16 new pieces of equipment because we don`t want anybody to ever say, ‘Well, you`re too busy, there`s not enough pieces of equipment,’” said Moen. “Besides that, we`re always replacing machines so they`re not breaking down."
While the number of people signing up for memberships increases during the winter, Moen says April is the Y`s busiest month for enrollment.
