Bangor Y Announces Phase 1 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

In February of this year, the Bangor Y announced exciting plans to consolidate its operations into one location through a phased construction project starting with Phase 1: expanded parking and modest internal renovations. After careful review of each location as well as which single site could best meet our community programming needs, Second Street was selected. Over the past ten months, the Bangor Y Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff have been working diligently finalizing our financing, real estate transactions, zone change, and site plan approvals, and construction. We are pleased to announce our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony scheduled to take place on deck of the Aloupis Pool on December 15 at 10:30 a.m. at our 17 Second Street location.
In September, the Bangor Y held a ground breaking ceremony. In little less than four months, the ‘new’ Bangor Y on Second Street is now open to the public. “The Y is so grateful to all of those who have helped make today possible, we could not have accomplished operating from a single site without the support of our volunteers, staff and community at large,” says Mike Seile, Bangor Y CEO. “Today represents more than the completion of a construction project or the consolidation into a single site. Today we celebrate the deep histories of the Bangor?Brewer YWCA and the Bangor YMCA, and the vision of our community leaders and staff in ensuring that future generations will benefit from our mission. Through the joint operation, formal merger and now our single location, we are pleased to reintroduce ourselves to the community as the Y, for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility” says Seile.
