I went over to the ribbon cutting for the new YMCA Day Care Center. Its on Washington Street in the former OB/GYN Building.
Y Director Peter Schmitt says the facility means the local Y now truly serves those of all ages and that up to 80 youngsters from infant to toddler can be taken care of at one time. While the Center will start with just a day shift that may be expanded.
Initially 18 full top equivalent jobs will be filled.
Its an impressive structure and really fills a need for many new to the area.
Mr. Schmitt says many Y's provide the service and he and fundraising chair John Johnson thanked the supporters for their donations.
