Stonestown YMCA celebrates this weekend after $4 million renovation completed

At 10 a.m. this Saturday the Stonestown YMCA will formally reopen to the community after $4 million in renovations took place. The YMCA managed to stay mostly-open while the work occurred, only shutting down for five weeks in total over a span of eight months.

The repairs included the construction of a new group exercise studio, the relocation of the Children’s Center, an upgrade of the reception area, and new equipment, ceilings and finishes in the cardio and strength-training centers.

The bulk of funding for the renovation—approximately $1.2 million—was raised by community. The remainder will be repaid over time.

In celebration of the work being completed a number of classes on Saturday will be free, including zumba, yoga, ballroom dance, and kids activities. A bounce house for kids will be set up in the basketball gym, healthy snacks will be provided, and information on the YMCA’s programs will be available.
