About 750 people got a glimpse of what the new Alexandria YMCA will look like during a "sneak-peek" open house Saturday. The 56,000-square- foot facility along County Road 82 is still under construction and is expected to open in June. "It was a great day," said Jeff Bartholomew, YMCA executive director, who along with 15 volunteers, provided guided tours of the building throughout the day.
