Easton Family YMCA to Host Community Candlelight Vigil


In the wake of the tragic events on Thursday June 6 at the Easton Family YMCA, our leadership team has elected to remain closed through the weekend as members of our staff, volunteers and community continue to grieve the loss of one of our beloved Y members Mr. John Cassidy. The Easton Family YMCA will open with regular hours on Monday June 10th at 4:45am. YMCA members are encouraged to utilize the Y @ Washington in Easton (8:00am – 6:00pm Saturday and Sunday) or the new Perkins Family YMCA in St. Michael’s (7:00am – 6:00pm Saturday, 11:00am – 6:00pm Sunday). The George Murphy Pool and Bay Hundred Community Pool will be open to Y members free of charge this weekend.

The YMCA will host a community candlelight vigil in honor of John Cassidy and the Cassidy family on the front steps of the Easton Family YMCA on Sunday, June 9th at 7:30 pm. The vigil will be held in the gymnasium in the event of inclement weather. Presiding over the vigil will be Rabbi Peter Hyman from Temple B’nai Israel, Rev. William T. Wallace from Union United Methodist Church and Father James Nash from Saints Peter and Paul Parish. All community members are invited to attend.
