RHINELANDER – The community is invited to a ribbon cutting at the YMCA of the Northwoods Tuesday, Oct. 24. The event, beginning at 10:30 a.m., will celebrate the opening of two new spaces at the Y.
Attendees will have the opportunity to see the recently-completed 12,000-square-foot gymnasium and 2,000-square-foot aerobics studio. Both are components of the Y’s $3 million Building for the Future Campaign, which has sought to expand the Y’s reach and capacity to provide services to the Northwoods community.
The new gymnasium includes three pickleball courts, a two-lane walking track, and enough space and equipment to host gymnastics meets. The new aerobics studio will provide expanded space for group exercise classes.
The ribbon cutting will also take place as additional new spaces are nearing completion. A 3,000-square-foot teen lounge and 1,400-square-foot community lounge are also part of the Building for the Future Campaign initiative. All are invited to the ribbon cutting. Refreshments will be provided.
