Edgetech I.G. and LMI Custom Mixing LLC, located in Cambridge, Ohio, on behalf of parent company Lauren International, have extended their commitment to the Cambridge YMCA Capital Campaign through 2014, investing $80,000 over 60 months that will be applied toward further revitalization of the gymnasium and annex buildings. The $5.5 million YMCA "Capital Campaign for Kids" was initiated in 2006 to turn the old high school into a place where youth and adults of the community could go for educational and recreational programs.

"They have done an amazing job so far turning the old high school into a state-of-the-art recreational facility for the community," said Mike Hovan, president of Edgetech I.G. "The YMCA is an invaluable part of our community, and the new facility is already providing a nice, safe place for children of all ages to gather, learn and exercise."

Edgetech and LMI donated $20,000 from 2006 to 2007, and just recently decided to continue investing in the future of the YMCA. On behalf of the companies, Hovan and Jeff Nixon, general manager for LMI Custom Mixing, presented the first installment toward the new Capital Campaign at a small ceremony on April 22. Accepting the check were Lynne Jones, YMCA development foundation secretary, and James S. Cowin, executive director.
