Join the YMCA of Greenwich, elected officials, local dignitaries and guests on Friday, September 14th at 10:00am as they remove the first boards of the staircase. The temporary wooden staircase was erected in early 2006 as part of the initial phase of renovation. Now that construction is nearly complete and interior parts of the building are online the stairs can come down. Once the renovations are completed an additional 40% of programmable space will be available to benefit the community through the addition of new YMCA activities.
Worth Construction, general contractor for the YMCA’s renovation, is generously donating the stair materials and the cost to dismantle the stairs to the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich. The Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich plan to use a portion of the materials as part of a tree house and obstacle course at Camp Simmons, their facility on Lake Avenue in Greenwich.
The YMCA of Greenwich was founded more than 95 years ago in 1916. Today, it is the largest community-based organization in Greenwich with more than 5,000 members dedicated to healthy living, youth development and social responsibility through athletics and life-long learning programs in order to nurture the potential of all in our community.
