Approval has already been granted by the town, and the YMCA hopes to break ground in September. When finished, the pavilion will provide running water, bathrooms and shelter to the camp area and to other programs, and the field will give kids a better place to play. The branch's other activities, such as youth sports, will also benefit.
"I think it's just going to add to the overall impact this facility have on our community," Martin said. "It's really going to take our facility to a whole new level."
