We have some wonderful news to share with you! As of Thursday, April 30th, the Governor’s executive orders mandating our temporary closure have expired and we will be able to begin welcoming members and additional employees back to work. Our phased restart plan starts with reopening on Wednesday, May 6th.

This does not include the PWR!Moves program at this time. You will be contacted when the program is ready to restart. Please continue to check this page for updates.
