Nearly a year to the date after the sign was erected on the future home of the "Y," residents, families and business owners can gather Tuesday to discuss topics such as:
- How can the Y help your business?
- How can the Y help attract employees?
- What impact will the Y have on our business community?
- Can the Y support your employee health plans?
It provides those who aren't college aged, or seniors, or members of traveling teams or other clubs, a new gathering space for fun and activity in Northfield. It reaches beyond school and into the community, she added, filling a void.
"What’s missing is a community center. A place where anyone and everyone is welcome. The Y will be that place," she wrote.
The new Y will be funded entirely by donations. Pledges and gifts so far total $5.2 million, Kaczmarek told Patch earlier this month. The facility is expected to cost $8 million to $9 million.
The construction of the new Northfield Area Family YMCA officially started on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 1500 Honey Locust Drive.
The Y is expected to open in fall 2014.
