And We're Off


We are happy to announce that we are moving ahead with the first part of our project. The new dehumidification unit has been ordered and work will soon begin. In order to dry out the natatorium, we broke phase 1 into two parts - dehumidification unit and Ductsox (pronounced duck sock). Drying out the natatorium will lower our humidity level from 82% to 60% and everyone will feel a huge difference once that happens. Once the ceiling and walls are dried out and moisture isn't collecting on everything, we will be able to replace and repair the rest of the pool area. That will mean new windows and doors, new lights, and upgraded pool mechanical items to help with pool operations.

With $262K pledged to date, we are over half way to our $500K goal for this project. Many thanks to those who have already given to the campaign for the pool, we are so grateful for your support.

Who will benefit from this campaign?
Everyone who uses the pool will find the improvements enhance their experience in a comfortable environment. The list of those who will enjoy these improvements is long: Infants and parents in our Water Babies program, preschool and elementary age children taking swim lessons, our faithful water group exercise classes, our swim team members and participants from other communities at our home meets, their parents who are in the stands, our coaches and instructors who lead these programs, lap swimmers, families enjoying open swim, and of course the lifeguards.

How can you help?
The Y was awarded a matching grant of up to $75,000 through the Wayne County Community Foundation. Over the next six months we are planning events and opportunities to raise funds to reach the maximum match. With this potential for $150,000, plus the $25,000 grant we received from the George T. Dunlap Community Foundation, we can reach 1/3 of our goal. You can help by taking advantage of various events and opportunities to participate or pledge to the campaign.

The Orrville YMCA is a 501(c)3, tax-exempt organization. Donations to this project qualify as charitable contributions. Donations can be made over a 3 year period if so desired.

We are very pleased to announce that Lisa and Dr Steve Widmer have agreed to be our Capital Campaign Co-Chairs. In addition, many volunteers and staff members are planning a variety of fun events to continue the momentum to reach our goal. Please feel free to call the YMCA and speak with Dean Gogolewski about the campaign and be on the lookout for more information and updates in 2018. The brochure is available by clicking here.
