Many years ago, my kids joined the swim team at the Downtown YMCA. ... Since I was already there, I started to use the exercise equipment and take classes. ... I have kept my Y Membership ever since. In addition to being a place to get or keep in shape, it is a place for camaraderie and fellowship with people of all ages. I cherish the friendships I have made at the Y. I commend the Y staff, administration, teachers and coaches for making this "A Place To Be!"
