SUMMER UPDATES FROM THE DOWD YMCA
If you've visited the branch recently, you know that construction is in full swing! The large entrance awning and building façade on East Morehead Street is gone and we've torn up the parking lot in preparation for the expansion's steel structure, which we'll begin building in July. You can now follow construction progress on our website - we've added a time-lapse camera that shows how we're evolving each day. Check it out >>
