Greensburg YMCA to hold ice cream fundraiser at The Meadows

Jacob Tierney

The Greensburg YMCA and The Meadows Frozen Custard have teamed up to raise money for youth programs.

The frozen custard shop will donate 35 percent of the proceeds collected from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at its Greensburg location at 660 Mt. Pleasant St. to the YMCA.

The money supports the YMCA’s youth programs through the organization’s annual fundraising campaign.

Fundraising will be a top priority for the Greensburg YMCA as it prepares for a major renovation of its 106-year-old building on Maple Avenue. The extensive multi-phase renovation is expected to cost about $2 million.

It will renovate locker rooms and add a new family changing room. The first floor will be rearranged, making room for a larger lobby. There will be a new group exercise room and a larger child watch section.

Work will be done in phases. The first phase is renovating the women’s locker room, which has been closed more than a year due to mechanical problems. Women have been using the separate girl’s locker room.

YMCA officials plan to launch a major fundraising campaign in late summer or early fall to begin raising money for the work.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
