Family Y Welcomes Members Back After Month Closure (with photos)

Longtime Y Member Ron Melino was the first through the doors on Friday, just before noon.

After a month-long closure to make repairs from extensive flood damage caused by Superstorm Sandy, the Westport Weston Family Y re-opened its doors on Friday, Nov. 30 at noon to Y Members and the community.

Some parts of the facility and programs remain temporarily out of service, and are detailed here.

“I am very proud of the work our staff and contracting partners have done to get us to this point,” said CEO Rob Reeves. “It’s been four weeks of cleaning up, drying out and undertaking the many complex tasks involved with getting our facility back in working order.

“Superstorm Sandy may have knocked us out of action for a while, but we’re happy to be able to once again serve our 5,500 Members and entire community, even if it means starting on a limited basis at first.”
