Bayside YMCA will close early Friday, and remain closed until Sunday


The Bayside YMCA in Barrington will close early on Friday, Feb. 8, in anticipation of the arrival of a hard-hitting winter storm. The West Street facility will close at 2 p.m. and remain closed on Saturday.

According to an e-mail issued by the Greater Providence YMCA on Thursday afternoon, officials decided to close a number of Rhode Island branches of the YMCA in order "an abundance of caution for our staff and members."

The e-mail also stated that Bayside YMCA will re-open on Sunday, Feb. 10. For more information, call 245-2444.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
