AMHERST - The YMCA is hoping to have all its programs back at home by the middle of the week.
Trina Clark, chief executive officer of the Cumberland YCMA, confirmed the facility will be closed for at least two days when it closes at its regular time Sunday night.
"We won't be re-opening until Wednesday at 5 p.m.," said Clarke. "We have to move a power pole and a water line, but we're not sure if we can move the water line in conjunction with the power pole."
Because of the closure, members won't have access to the organization's classes, equipment or pool.
During the power outage, the Y is hoping to have enough light to move the weight equipment into its new space, minimizing the inconvenience to its members.
Following the closure, the pool will remain closed, re-opening on Saturday.
