There’s a Y in Economy
Interview with Megan Tsui, Executive Director, Northfield Enterprise Center
Do you have any prior experience with the YMCA? I have been a member on and off in Red Wing. I went to Camp Pepin when I was a kid!
In what ways will having a Y Community Center impact the local economy? I believe the Y will add significantly to the quality of life in Northfield. It can be used by employers to market Northfield to prospective employees, and those of us in the economic development field can use it to market the community to prospective businesses. Having a Y will bring jobs and opportunities and will help make our community stronger by providing meeting and gathering spaces.
How will having a Y Community Center impact your business? We will make sure to let prospective business owners know that our community has invested in a healthy, active Y, and that Northfield is a great place to start or move a business!
Why do you support having a Y in our area? For all of these reasons!
