The Texas County YMCA is making a few changes to their membership payment methods to better serve the community.
Y members now have the option to pay cash or check monthly. Before, members had only the options of paying for memberships through automatic monthly bank transfer or for those wishing to pay with cash or check by paying quarterly or yearly at a time.
"The Board has approved new a way of accepting memberships," said Rob Rixon, YMCA CEO.
"We were missing out on a lot of individuals who wanted to pay by cash every month and might not otherwise be able to participate."
