In the spring of 2020, the Clinton County Family YMCA and The Farmer’s Bank announced a partnership focused on strengthening the health and well-being of residents of Clinton County. This partnership focuses on enhancing the Y’s library of fitness videos, at home personalized fitness programs, workplace wellness programs, mobile app, new website and new free weight equipment on site at the Y.
This partnership was established in light of the Y’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. President and CEO of the Farmers Bank, Karin Gregerson, said, “The Farmers Bank is committed to the well-being of the whole person, financially and physically. We are pleased to partner with the YMCA who has been particularly innovative during this unprecedented time to bring physical wellness to our community.

Health and well-being is important during every stage of life but even more so as you get older. In our work, we have found that staying healthy as an older adult (60+) requires more focus on stamina, strength and movement. That is why we have partnered with three Medicare supported programs to increase the number of older adults who are active within our community.
These programs include Silver Sneakers, Silver and Fit, and Renew Active. If you have Medicare, check with your insurance provider to see if one of these programs is available to you.
At the Y, one of our focuses is on improving individual and community well-being. We know that when we support the community’s workforce the community strengthens. That is why we offer a 10% membership discount to employees of the following companies: The City of Frankfort, Clinton County Government, NHK, Frankfort Community Schools, Brock, Cintas, Clinton Central School Corporation, Co-Alliance, Federal Mogul, Frankfort Times, Frito Lay, Goodwin Funeral Home, Healthy Communities, Hi-Tech Label, IU Health, Fontana Fasteners, NTK, St. Vincent Hospital, Indiana State Employees, State Farm Insurance, Wesley Manor, and The Farmers Bank.

The coalition is a partnership of healthcare providers, service care providers, educators and community leaders who are interested in addressing issues of health in the Clinton County community.
