Building Update

The construction of the new YZA building is underway. The building is modular and has already been constructed in a factory in Pennsylvania. We are digging a concrete pier foundation and running the plumbing over the coming week to two weeks and anticipate delivery of the building on October 30th, just two weeks away!

There are still dedications available, visit for more information or call the office at 516-295-5700 x17.
