Connie's Y Story

Connie's Y Story

It all began with the passing of my sweet dog, Frankie. She was 16 years old. Her breed: silky terrier.

I needed to get away from my home, get myself out and about. A neighbor and friend, Amy, is an instructor at the Cooper Y. She was there cheering me on. She also told a couple of the employees that my dog had died and those employees showed a lot of kindness.

Going to Cooper is like a “shot in the arm." I may not be losing weight, I am maintaining weight. What I am gaining is a more positive outlook and so many good friends! Thank you Cooper Y. It is so bright and clean! Activities are community minded and fun!
