Despite cold weather closing many area business and schools, the Northern Door Program Center of the Door County YMCA is staying open with most of its services intact. Although the program center has adjusted its hours to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will thus open an hour and a half later and close an hour sooner, the center will remain open and become a possible destination for those looking to escape the cold. Tyler Powell, the Association Youth and Aquatics Director at the Northern Door Program Center, said recent upgrades have helped keep the center’s condition in great shape despite the winter threat.
While the center will remain open, all YMCA classes are canceled with no on-site kid care. The Sturgeon Bay Program Center will also open with 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. hours, and the Barker Child Development Center will open from 7 to 5:45 p.m.
