On May 13 at 5:30 am, Door County YMCA board member Mike McCutcheon was the first person to use the new, 3,800-square-foot lifestyle center at the Northern Door Program Center. Under construction since October 2015, the expansion opened its doors to rave reviews.
“Our members have been very pleased with the results, and as visitors and guests arrive over the summer, we’re sure they’ll be impressed, too,” said Drew Richmond, center executive director. “This spectacular space creates a real opportunity for the YMCA and for our community.”
While McCutcheon might have been the first member on Friday morning, the space was opened up to the Parkinson’s Exercise Class taught in collaboration with Ministry Door County Medical Center on Thursday morning for their regularly scheduled class time.
“To see those individuals walking on treadmills in this beautiful space really brings this whole project full circle,” said Allison Vroman, program director.
Construction continues within the building to renovate the old lifestyle center into two multi-purpose spaces. This space is expected to open mid-June, and a grand opening to celebrate the completion of the whole project is scheduled for June 18. For more information call 920.868.3660.
