Community volunteers who campaigned, cajoled, and fundraised their way to leading the charge for the construction of the new Regional Community YMCA in Putnam put their names on it-- literally-- as they signed a 22 beam before it was hoisted atop the gymnasium at the new Y.
Lawrence and Betty Hale were the first to sign their names to the beam on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.
Groundbreaking for the a Regional Community YMCA, which will serve residents of northeastern Connecticut, took place in January. The facility will include an eight lane pool, a warm water pool, gymnasium, fitness and aerobic area, teen center and child watch area. The grand opening is
anticipated in the spring of 2016.
