“Steps” For The New Y

A model of the new Y has sat in the old Y lobby for months.

The new YMCA -- well, a model of it.

But next Tuesday (May 10, 4 p.m.), Y officials take a step forward with the launch of their “Building What Matters” capital campaign.  A public presentation is set for the front steps of the oldest part of the downtown Y:  the Bedford steps.

First selectman Gordon Joseloff; civic leaders Bill Mitchell, Sam Gault and Robin Tauck, and Y board members will speak.

Cake and refreshments will be served inside.

And then the Y will get down to the serious business of raising funds for the new 102,000-square foot facility at Mahackeno.  They hope to leave downtown by late 2014.
