At the Lula W. Dorsey Museum, we collect and share history with our many guests and local community. Part of our history belongs to you, our alumni, who have called this YMCA home during your summer and winter holidays. To this end, we are always excited to welcome back alumni to the Estes Park Alumni Cabin (Purple Finch) housed on museum grounds. The memories you share help us to create a more complete picture of life at the center, and are an important part of our more than 100 year history. YMCA of the Rockies is where we make memories and build relationships.
This year, while very different from previous years, we look forward to our alumni sharing their history at the Y and we remain committed to helping alumni find joy in their visit to the museum and Alumni Cabin.
In order to protect alumni and current staff we have implemented new safety and cleaning protocols.
