Message From Our CEO – Tina Carter
Dear friends, The holiday season is upon us, and it has been a very busy year for our crew at the Y. In 2022 we were able to complete many projects in our Downtown facility. Many of these projects were not visible to our members but were well needed. The projects completed are as follows:
- New Roof
- Upgraded all electrical boxes
- New windows on the second floor as well as upgraded flooring and bathroom
- Secured funding to replace all the windows on the first floor including the gym and pool area, the windows have been ordered and hopes that we get a few in before winter is upon us. If this doesn’t happen it will be spring of 2023 for installation.
- Painted the front of the building, added new lights and a new sign
- Added AC/heating units in all childcare space
We were fortunate to have secured funding for all these projects and there was no need for any financing. 2023 will be even busier with the new projects we have planned. We will be kicking off a capital campaign to raise funds for several large projects. The projects included are:
- Renovation of the pool space to create a multipurpose room that will be used for fitness classes, family events, free dinners and so much more.
- New floor in our gymnasium
- Renovation of the men’s shower room
- Conversation of steam room to sauna
- New ramp in the front of the building
These new projects will total almost $500,000 and we are excited to announce that we have already raised $232,000 towards these projects. If you have a passion for one of our projects listed and would like to donate funds to a specific project, we will apply your donated funds to that area of improvement. Please feel free to email Tina, [email protected] or Hannah, [email protected] with any questions.
Tina Carter, CEO
