Y Holds 90th - and Last - Annual Meeting Downtown

He was also there to say goodbye to the Y building itself, as the organization held its 90th annual meeting, the last one at its downtown location.

“This is an important milestone, saying goodbye to a beloved building that means so much to so many Westporters,” Marpe said about the facility built by Edward T. Bedford and opened on the corner of Church Lane and Main Street on Sept. 5, 1923.

“But we all know that in a few months we’ll all be at a wonderful new facility that will serve so many generations of Westporters to come,” he added about the new Y set to open in September at its Mahackeno campus near Exit 41 off the Merritt Parkway.
