Governor announces $50,000 to Danville YMCA
Grant used for multiple improvements

CHICAGO– Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today authorized the release of $50,000 in state funds to the Danville YMCA as part of a project to improve the facility’s lobby, parking lot and handicapped accessibility.  This is the final installment on a $100,000 grant for this project.
“I’m pleased that we are able to improve the physical conditions of this YMCA and improve the environment for the individuals and families participating in the center’s programs, especially people with disabilities,” said Governor Blagojevich.
The Danville YMCA’s parking lot became inadequate as a result of a doubling in the facility’s membership. Accessible parking spaces will be expanded and added in close proximity to the building’s entrance.
“Since the Danville YMCA play such an important role in the live of people throughout the community these improvements will ensure that this facility will be even more accessible.  I want to thank the Governor for all his support,” said State Representative Bill Black the project’s sponsor. The release of the remaining funds is a great memorial to the life of Glenn Murphy. Glenn Murphy was the former Executive Director of the Danville YMCA. He held the position for over 40 years. Mr. Murphy passed away a month ago.
