WATCH: Peconic YMCA releases video touting benefits of facility

PeconicYMCA, which hopes to close on land in Aquebogue in the near future, released a promotional video Wednesday morning touting the benefits of a new facility in Riverhead Town.

Peconic YMCA released its first promotional video this morning touting the benefits of the new facility they hope to build on Main Road in Aquebogue.

The group, which says it has raised $6.1 million of the $8 million needed to move forward with a new YMCA in Riverhead Town, is hoping to close soon on an 8.9 acre property across from Vineyard Caterers.

The $8 million would include both construction and land acquisition costs, YMCA officials have said. The money raised includes $3 million from the Glen Cove-based YMCA of Long Island.
