The Patoka Township is contributing in a big way to the new YMCA that is being built in Princeton, Indiana.
The trustees of the township approved a $75,000 donation that will go towards programing and scholarships at the Toyota Indiana YMCA when it is completed.
The plan is to transform the former Lowell Elementary building on Water Street to house a wellness center, youth development areas, a community teaching kitchen, pool, and additional gymansium.
The project was announced in March of this year, as a partnership between Toyota Indiana and the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana. TMMI has committed $1 million dollars to the new facility as part of a larger committment to growing Gibson County.
The new YMCA is expected to be completed in early 2023.
