It's the top ...

A milestone will be marked Wednesday by the Westport Weston Family Y in construction of its new, $38.5 million headquarters on the Mahackeno campus.

The topping-off ceremony is set for 1 p.m. Work crews from United Steel will "top off" the building by installing the "crowning" beam in the framework of what will be a 54,000-square-foot structure when completed sometime next year.

That 20-foot beam has been signed by Y staff, volunteer leaders, major donors to its capital campaign and the Y's construction partners.
