The YMCA of York and York County is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony on September 24, 2019 at 12:00 pm to celebrate the start of construction at the Southern Branch YMCA, 100 Constitution Avenue, Shrewsbury, PA 17361. The organization recently completed a $5,500,000 capital campaign, which will bring necessary upgrades to the Southern Branch YMCA’s multi-use space and aquatics facilities.
“We’re excited to begin the work at our branch in Southern York County,” says Larry Richardson, President/CEO of the YMCA of York and York County. “We’ve been blessed to be surrounded by such a strong community and for the opportunity to work in partnership with so many stakeholders to provide new and upgraded facilities that meet emerging and urgent community needs.
Leaders from the community and YMCA will kick off the event at 12:00 pm on the lawn in front of the building, which will be followed by the official groundbreaking and lunch. Anyone from the community is welcome to attend to hear about the projects and learn more about the YMCA.
