Event Details

On Tuesday, September 16 at 8:30 a.m. Southern District YMCA will break ground for a new 33,000 square foot facility on Linden Street in Exeter, NH. Victoria Arlen, Paralympic Gold and Silver Medalist, will share her Y story – how the Y said “yes,” when everyone else said “no.” Community support for the project is strong, vibrant and patient. The entire community is invited to witness the event.

The new facility – designed by Jewett Construction, Inc. – will feature:

• Lobby and Welcome Lounge
• Gymnasium
• Indoor track
• Wellness Center (Cardio/Weights)
• Group Fitness Studios
• Locker Rooms
• Child Watch Room
• Youth and Teen Space
• Multi-purpose Community Room

A capital campaign is currently underway to raise the necessary funds to construct the first phase of the facility. While the shovels hit the dirt on Tuesday, there is still a need for local donations to support the completion of the project. Interested individuals or businesses who would like to contribute to the new facility are encouraged to contact Rhonda Bernstein, Capital Campaign Director, at or 603-770-6033.
