Steady Recovery for the Wilmington YMCA

Dick Jones, YMCA President & CEO

After a fire devastated the Wilmington YMCA in early February, President Dick Jones and the entire YMCA staff was faced with a daunting task:  How could they possibly serve over 7,000 fitness, program, and activity members without a space?  Many organizations and individuals have become involved in helping the Y continue to fulfill its mission.  Listen to Dick Jones talk about how it's been possible to continue some programming through partnerships, including swimming lessons this summer.

Keep your eyes open for the opening of the "Express Y" on Market Street, which will be a new space to use while the old space is renovated.   We look forward to having Mr. Jones as a guest again in a few months to get an update; the YMCA may be better than ever before after going through this transformative experience.
