There is plenty of work going on including pouring concrete for sidewalks, cleaning up the parking lot and laying sod before next week. And there's much more happening inside the nearly $24 million facility. More than $27 million was raised with $3.5 million going to the YMCA Family Center for updates and renovations.

Workers are finishing up locker rooms, steam rooms, tiling and one of the final areas to be finished up will be the tennis area which still needs curtains and nets hung up. Fitness officials say the nice weather has construction ahead of schedule. The facility was originally going to open more than a month from now. Work will continue on the 42 acres of land surrounding the facility which will have six outdoor tennis courts, a splash park and possibly a greenhouse and orchard next spring.

The Grand Opening which is open to the the public will be Monday, September 24th from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
