Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Walking into the Soundview Family YMCA, you'll be wrapped in a feeling of warmth and life; you can thank Sandra Vlock of Arbonies King Vlock for that. Soundview Family YMCA Executive Director Doug Shaw says Vlock was in charge of the color scheme for the 38,000-square-foot facility her architecture firm made a reality.</p>
<p>The building was constructed in just 365 days, and Shaw says local labor was employed for the creation of this state-of-art center. Branford-based OR&L Construction worked on the facility, and Shaw says of the local ties, "I'm going to bet that's why we finished on time and under budget."</p> <p>Members of the YMCA have two pools for use, a fitness center, game room, computers, climbing wall, outdoor adventure and basketball courts at their disposal.</p> <p>Additionally, the YMCA offers child care for parents and a summer day camp.</p> <p>Shaw has been leading the way for the YMCA since doors opened in August, 2010. He hails from a long past of recreation experience; his most recent gig was the Assistant Director of the Guilford Recreation Department.</p> <p>Through volunteers and generous donations, Shaw said the YMCA was made possible. There are also plans in the works to add an addition to the YMCA, featuring a gymnasium with two sport courts and an indoor track.</p> <p>For more details, visit the <a href="http://www.soundviewymca.org">YMCA</a> online.</p>
