DADE CITY -- Leaders from the YMCA and the city announced Monday they have reached their financial goals and are ready to move ahead with the opening of a YMCA branch in downtown by the summer.

City Commissioner Bill Dennis vowed to be among the first members at the new YMCA by renewing his membership to the Zephyrhills facility and transferring it to Dade City when the new center opens along Merdian Avenue in the Lindy C. Smith Civic Center.

Mayor Scott Black, Commissioner Lowell Harris and City Manager Doug Drymon joined Zephyrhills YMCA manager Joe Mangione for Monday's announcement.

Mangione plans to start recruiting Dade City members by April, with a grand opening shortly after. Zephyrhills members would be welcome at the Dade City branch, but a discounted membership may be offered for members who use only the Dade City facility.
