  • YMCA karate room nearly complete

    The Fayette County Family YMCA has nearly completed construction of a new room that will primarily be used for its karate program.

    In addition, the number of participants in the Y's fall and winter programs have been very strong, according to Program Director Amber Daulbaugh.

    "The Dojo" was put into use earlier this month, and it serves as the training room for the approximately 20 youth who are currently enrolled in the karate program.

    The only aspect of the room left to complete is installing a punching bag.
