Parsons ES Students Participate in Groundbreaking for "the Y on U"

Students from Parsons Elementary School participated in the groundbreaking ceremony last week for the new YMCA facility to be constructed at the old Kmart location on University Ave. As part of the event, they got to dig for golden horseshoes, a nod to the Golden Horseshoe Drive-In that occupied the space before Kmart opened in 1987. "The Y on U" is expected to open in Fall 2020 and will create a multi-generational cultural center connecting families with critical services as well as entertaining activities and events.
