Calling it one of the most exciting community projects to happen in his lifetime, a local business leader recently gave a landmark donation to the Alexandria area YMCA.


Alexandria resident and owner of Pete's County Market Maynard "Bud" Peterson has donated $1.5 million to the new YMCA in honor of his wife, Sylvia Peterson, who died in 2003.

YMCA officials said they are hoping the generous gift will inspire others to donate to the project as well.
