Fayette Co. Retired Teachers learn about YMCA


The Fayette County Retired Teachers Association’s first luncheon meeting of the year was a rollicking success: first, the usual delicious meal prepared by the women of Grace United Methodist Church, then a lively, informative talk by the YMCA’s director, Doug Saunders. Not only will the local YMCA hold a “burning of the mortgage” ceremony next week to close out the original $3 million-dollar debt, but on Feb. 22 there will be numerous free events during an Expansion Open House. The latter will showcase the new 13,000 square-foot addition to the original 37,000 square-foot facility. Saunders impressed his audience with the wide selection of activities available here in Fayette County.
