Columbia Athletic Club at Juanita Bay in Kirkland recently celebrated its 35th anniversary with more than 300 members, guests and staff. Guests enjoyed appetizers from Café Veloce, wine tasting from two member-owned vineyards: Ribbon Cliff and Finn Hill Winery, organic coffee from Boyle Coffee, handcrafted brew from Hi-Fi Brewery, and a special guest appearance by Santa.

Sixty current members were recognized with engraved crystal bowls for being with the club since the very beginning.

The Juanita Bay Club is a family owned and operated, 40,000-square-foot full service athletic club which opened in March 1981. In addition to the standard weights and cardio equipment, Columbia offers 69 Group Exercise classes per week, has two saltwater swimming pools, three squash courts, basketball court, full service locker rooms, two hot tubs, steam room and sauna.

In January, the Club will launch the opening of its new IMPACTraining studio.
