We Are Family

Posted on December 5, 2013

Some of us have been together at this Y for over 30 years. We enjoy our exercise classes together and gathering afterwards. The Y is not only a place to be “perfectly physically fit,” it is a place for us to socialize. We are a support group for each other and everyone here is so supportive and down to earth. This is our second family.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Mary Jane challenges our brain with quizzes, so that we are working our minds as well as our bodies. We share friendship, information, books, recipes, food, travels, play canasta and bridge games. We can rely on each other for anything. We are like sorority sisters with daily doses of caffeine. We love that little Y kids can see grandmas and grandpas working out and living a healthy life. We love it here so much that sometimes we just don’t want to go home. Our lives have improved so much because of the Y. The Y is just another reason for living.
