Dignitaries gather outside the new Tellepsen Downtown YMCA, which has a soft opening for members September 20.
Tuesday night the YMCA of Greater Houston hosted a swanky ribbon cutting for the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA, the state-of-the-art facility that will replace the dilapidated old Downtown Y just a few blocks away. The new location opens to members September 20 and to the general public in October. PHOTOS BY BRITTANIE SHEY
