OUR HISTORY: Beginning in 1977 as a "Y without walls", our supportive community allowed us use of their facilitys as we worked toward building our own facility.
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PHASE 1: In 1998, our Board of Directors initiated a capital campaign to raise funds to build the first phase of our facility. More than $4.7 million was raised through the generous support of the entire community. The board planned the full facility Y in phases to avoid incurring long-term debt. Phase 1 was financed with a short term loan against pledges. That loan was paide in full in January 2004.
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PHASE 2: June 17, 2020 celebrated the opening of the Tom & Sally Savage Pool Complex with communty leaders, donors and contributors who donated $4.2 million to the pool complex campaign thus fulfilling our promise to provide a full service Y.
