The YMCA of Greater Tulsa (www.ymcatulsa.org) and Daily Family YMCA in Bixby announce they have signed a letter of intent for the Daily Family Y to become part of the YMCA of Greater Tulsa. This positive change brings added privileges and benefits to Bixby YMCA members.  As part of a larger YMCA association, you will be able to take advantage of the YMCA of Greater Tulsa’s numerous programs at 9 additional YMCAs. This includes 7 membership facilities, and a resident camp on Lake Fort Gibson.

The Tulsa Y has been serving the Tulsa area since 1909; the Daily Family Y has been in operation since 1984. Both organizations look forward to strengthening the Y’s offerings throughout the region.

“A needs assessment and survey of Bixby-area residents told the Daily Family Y and the Greater Tulsa Y that the community of Bixby wanted more access to programs and services; with this move, we are giving that to them,” says Mark Messer,  member of the Bixby Board of Directors. “We looked at different partnership options to strengthen both Ys moving forward, and joining together made the most sense for everyone.”
