Thereâ??s a new, smiling face at the Northern Lights YMCA in Iron Mountain. Jonathan Ringel has now joined the team as the new director for the center. Ringel was formerly the Main Street Manager for the City of Iron Mountain, but is now helping the community in a different way. He said the position is perfect with his personality and that he's excited to begin new programs and initiatives at the YMCA.
â??Weâ??re going to be looking a lot towards fundraising in the community, a lot towards expanding our programming,â?? said Ringel, â??really reaching out through surveys, different means of communication to find out what our members would like to see.â??
Ringel will lead over 20 full-time and part-time staff and is hoping to bring more growth to the center.
