Volunteers scramble to save local fitness facility
The New Richmond Area YMCA will end and hand over its local operation effective Jan. 1, 2009.
A new, local non-profit Board of Directors will take over the pool and fitness facility and operate it independently. The organization will be known as the New Richmond Area Centre.
Darian Blattner has been hired as the Centre's new executive director. Blattner was the YMCA's director for several years prior to losing his job this past summer.
