Welcoming Week Lunch and Learn @ Baxter YMCA
Sep 16 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Join us for a lunch and learn to celebrate the variety of cultures that help to make up the fabric of our south side community.  The first hour from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM will dive into the Chin culture.  The Chins are a minority ethnic population from North-Western Burma (Myanmar). The Chin community in Indianapolis has been growing in number since 2000 due to fleeing from the military dictatorship of their mother country, Burma. Having been relocated to a new place and environment, they have been voluntarily helping each other to meet their basic social and human needs.

The second hour from 12:30 – 1:30 PM will cover the Hispanic culture.  Throughout the history of the United States, people have come from various parts of the globe and have contributed to build this nation where we live today. Learning about the Hispanic heritage gives us an opportunity understand and enjoy the richness and diversity of the various Latin American cultures.

3 Pools. That's... 1, 2, 3.

Come make a splash in one of our three center pools.

Our Center

The staff is extremely kind and helpful. An extreme variety of fitness exercises from youth to elderly. There's not a gym around that can offer what this place does. Also love the sauna and upgrades to the mens locker room.
