Committee for new YMCA sets meeting

GREENVILLE — A committee working to establish a new YMCA facility in Greenville is meeting again this week

The YMCA committee is set to convene at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, 5501 Highway 69 South.

YMCA Executive Director Kelly Gaudreau intends to correlate YMCA programs with building needs and appoint a facilities subcommittee.

The committee will also discuss pledges and commitments made to the effort so far, as well as appoint a subcommittee to coordinate the pledges and commitments.

Two tours of the existing YMCA are being scheduled, at 4 p.m. Dec. 17 and 4 p.m. Jan. 8.

The Greenville YMCA building turned 50 this year.

The fundraising campaign to build a new YMCA in Greenville was formally launched in June 2011.

The new facility is expected to cost about $8 million, with approximately half of the amount already raised or pledged. The committee would be charged with coming up with a projected cost and an income model.
