State Sen. Gayle Slossberg (D-Milford) was joined Thursday by local elected and YMCA officials, as well as a few dozen young children, to cut the ribbon on a new child development wing at the Woodruff Family YMCA. The expansion was made possible by support from YMCA officials and a state investment secured by Slossberg.
“We know that the time we invest in our kids when they’re very young makes a critical difference in their ability to succeed in school and throughout their lives. That’s what this project is about,” said Slossberg. “By expanding classroom space we have increased the number of young lives that can be impacted by the great work of the Woodruff Family YMCA. This YMCA does incredible work for our community, and I’m proud to have been able to help them with that work.”
