The last day of operation for the Athenian will be December 1st, 2019.  The Athenian was used by a variety of members because of its 24/7 availability.  According to the letter sent this week, "all classes, services and 24/7 availability of the Family Y Wellness Center are being arranged."

CEO and President John C. Alexander says that member forums at the Athenian are being scheduled and will be posted this week.
