Waukegan YMCA to close at end of year

December 28, 2012 (WAUKEGAN, Ill.)

A decision was made to close the facility next Monday at 1:00 p.m.

The YMCA has been struggling with debt, falling membership and the weak economy.

Supporters have tried to raise money to save the facility but have fallen short of what's needed.

All money will be returned to donors.

The building could be sold to someone who might want to reopen it as a YMCA or other type of health facility.
