Hundreds of people from all over Bergen County gathered at the JCC for its annual Open House on Sunday, September 10, where new and prospective members toured the facility, swam in the pools, worked out in the adult and youth fitness centers, attended sample classes and met with JCC staff to learn about all the exciting programs that the JCC offers. As a special promotion in connection with the event, the JCC is still offering people the opportunity to get $150 off membership if they join by October 31.
“Our goal was to engage our community by showcasing who and what we are as a welcoming community center,” says JCC CEO Jordan Shenker. “We are very pleased with the results, as dozens of families took tours and signed up as members. It’s the perfect opportunity to show our community the benefits that come with JCC membership and we are still busy responding to membership and programming inquiries.”
Adding to the fun of the day was the Thurnauer School of Music Instrumental Petting Zoo, where people of all ages could try their hand at a variety of musical instruments; dance school and performing arts presentations; sample classes and demonstrations for adults in Zumba and Pilates; mini chair and table massages; entertainment for children, including a moon bounce, face painting, glitter tattoos and balloonologists; health and fitness related activities; and more.
