YMCA of Central Kentucky International Youth Exchange
Host families are needed for the Central Kentucky YMCA German Exchange Student program, which runs Friday, July 24 through Wednesday, Aug. 24. Host families will be responsible for transportation for students on those dates.
Host families will provide a comfortable place for the guest to stay and provide any meals that are not part of the program itinerary (generally, this consists of breakfast every day and some evening meals as well as snacks, etc.). Families will entertain the guest on the weekend of August 6-7 and provide transportation to the drop-off point each day and picking up the guest at the end of the day.
RIDE THE TRAIL
Summer is a popular time for bike riding, and the North Lexington Family YMCA is one of the only locations in Lexington where people can rent bikes and take a ride on the Legacy Trail, a bike/run/walk trail that begins on grounds of the North Y.
Individual Y members pay a one-time $15 seasonal fee while families pay $30, and rent bikes from the beginning of April to the end of October. The number of family members does not affect the price in the family deal so the price is $30 regardless of number of children.
There are currently 20 bikes available for use, with varying sizes suitable for all ages. Non-members can also rent bikes, for a cost of $30 each time they rent with a valid credit card. For more information about Y bike rentals, call the North Lexington Family YMCA at (859) 258-9622.
