The RochesterMinnesota community is losing another staple in the downtown area.  Members of the Rochester Area Family YMCA received the disheartening letter earlier this month that the large building on 1st Avenue would be closing on January 31st, 2022.  The Y is inviting the community to join in for one last workout, some final moments, and celebrations.
