The project you see underway at the Door County YMCA Sturgeon Bay Program Center is approximately $350,000 away from its final goal. The Door County YMCA announced Wednesday afternoon that its Heart of the Community campaign had crossed the $9.9 million threshold. The news comes a month after the organization broke ground on the project that will make the most substantial improvements to the facility since the pool was added in 2001. Campaign coordinator and former Door County YMCA CEO Tom Beernsten told the crowd at last month's groundbreaking that this was as fulfilling of a campaign as he has ever been a part of during his 50-plus-year career
The hope is the walls will be erected in the coming weeks and be enclosed before snowstorms hit the area. The goal for the Heart of the Community campaign is $10.3 million, and donations can still be directed to the Door County YMCA.
