“Every year, we drain the swimming pool and repaint it,”said Rogers,” We resurfaced all of the hardwood floors in the gyms, racquetball court, and exercise areas.  We put in new carpeting downstairs this year, we painted a lot of the walls and re-striped the parking lot.  We  also have a whole new color scheme in our children’s play park, so that looks totally different now.”

The facility, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in November, has returned to normal hours this week; however, the North Central Missouri YMCA is now undergoing their annual cleaning.  Rogers encouraged Brookfield members to use the Chillicothe facility during this time.
