Vandalia YMCA raises enough money for construction, needs more to open

Vandalia, Mo. - A Vandalia YMCA is scheduled to have a groundbreaking ceremony Nov. 2 after officials received enough money to begin construction.

The Eastern Missouri Family YMCA will be a branch of the Mexico Area Family YMCA. 

The new facility will provide 1-2 full-time positions and 10-15 part-time positions. 

The community, organizations, and grant programs raised $1.67 million for the project, allowing construction to begin. However, additional funds are needed to open the facility, purchase equipment and employee salaries. 

The YMCA is scheduled to open next summer.
