The Penobscot Bay YMCA has received a donation from Allen Insurance and Financial for the Rockland Harbor YMCA, a branch of the Penobscot Bay YMCA.
“We are very pleased to help the Y expand its reach,” said Michael Pierce, President of Allen Insurance and Financial. “We know our employees in Rockland are among the many people in the Rockland area who are happy to have access to the Y’s activities closer to where they live and work.”
The Rockland Harbor YMCA is scheduled to open in November and will have approximately 8,000 square feet of space in what was formerly occupied by Amalfi Restaurant at 12 Water St. Services will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor and outdoor exercise studios and a childcare center to serve families with infants through preschoolers (with space for 38 children). Popular programs such as Group Power, Group Active, Senior Strength, TRX, among others, will be offered.
In addition, more than 25 pieces of fitness equipment overlooking Rockland Harbor will be available for members to use at their convenience. While a Y membership or day fee will be required to use the facility, that same membership will provide an individual access to both the new Rockland Branch and the existing Rockport facility and all its offerings.
“The Penobscot Bay YMCA is excited about the opportunity to meet the needs of a growing business community that needs both quality child care options and a healthy workforce,” said Troy Curtis, the Y’s executive director. “It is partnerships with companies like Allen Insurance and Financial that are making this exciting expansion possible.”
