In a fitting New Year’s eve moment, YMCA of Greenwich Executive Director Bob DeAngelo organized a ball drop on the corner of Mason St and East Putnam Ave just before midnight, following a group warm-up led by Lamott Rollins in the gymnasium.
The event, billed as a midnight run/walk, marked the start of the YMCA of Greenwich’s 100th birthday year. What better way to commemorate 100 years than with an event that incorporates fitness, community and a healthy start to the new year?
About 100 people turned out for the gathering which was topped off with pancakes and birthday cake around 12:30am. With luck, the event will become a tradition!
