Spring open house is held at YWCA


LEWISTON – The YWCA of Central Maine held an open house recently. Those attending learned about the programs offered and received a tour of the facility. The reception that followed was supported through the donation of baked goods from YWCA members in the water fitness classes and beverages from Poland Spring Bottling Co.

“It was very gratifying to see people give up a warm spring day to visit us at the YWCA,” said Anne Craigs, executive director.

The facility on East Avenue was busy with a birthday party, lifeguard classes and Magic YWorld, the indoor water park.

The purpose of the open house was to thank the community for assisting with the opening of a new child care room for infants and toddlers. “We were excited to show off our new child care rooms,” said Wendy Russell, director of child care at the YWCA. “We had tremendous support from the community to open our new Tiny Tots for the infants and toddlers. This open house was our way of thanking all those people.”

Registration for summer camp is under way. Preference is given to families already enrolled in the child care programs. “This year has been a great success for us. We have added programs and all our child care rooms are full,” said Russell. “We want to expand further and provide even more support to the community.”
