Garner is Getting Close to Building a YMCA Facility

Many of you have heard a buzz over the years about Garner getting a YMCA facility. The YMCA program has been strong in our community for several years, but much has been going on behind the scenes to get a building in our town. A small group of citizens have been working hard in what was called ‘The Quiet Phase’ which included getting commitments for $5,378,000 towards the $7,000,000 needed amount for the project.

The property, adjacent to White Deer Park and across the street from Lake Benson Park, is the perfect location for the YMCA to build their permanent home in Garner.

The project is now moving into what is called the ‘Public Phase’ where the public will be getting regular updates about what’s happening, including the building’s name, which we will hopefully find out next month.
