Last week, we reported on the Door County YMCA’s expressed need to expand their Sturgeon Bay facilities with a new re-imagined Wellness Center. Wednesday the Door County YMCA has announced receiving a most generous gift of $1 million from the Glen and Barb Timmerman family. The Timmermans are seasonal residents of Door County and have built up a history with the organization . Mr. Timmerman has served in a governance role on the Door County YMCA Board and helped develop the Y’s strategic plan. He comments, “I became very engaged in the programs that the Y offers and was able to see firsthand the life-altering impact the Y has on the people and families in the Door community.” An expanded and renovated Sturgeon Bay facility will help increase accessibility for older adults with mobility challenges. It will create more social gathering spaces to foster community connections. It will create stronger partnerships with local organizations, and will create more opportunities for education and small group meetings in a multi-purpose space.
