  • In fall 1995, the Plainfield Area YMCA first began serving students in the Plainfield community through its before and after school program, which was held at four area elementary schools.
  • As a result of a generous naming gift in January 2002, the YMCA was renamed the C.W. Avery Family YMCA in honor of the late Clyde Avery, his wife Judy and their family.
  • In December 2002, the YMCA acquired 11.5 acres of property through a land-swap with Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 to be the future site of the C.W. Avery Family YMCA. The state-of-the-art and award-winning building opened its doors to the Plainfield community in 2006.
  • The Cliff and Lois Berglund Family Aquatic Center opened in November 2008 after a successful capital campaign and a generous naming gift by the late Cliff and Lois Berglund.
  • To better accommodate the fitness needs of its growing membership base, the Y expanded its Wellness Center in 2013, adding more space, new equipment and a redesigned aesthetic.
