Making More Possible

November is gratitude month – here is an example of the impact our donors make everyday!

Your donations make it possible for me to be a member of the Rye YMCA.  Let me tell you what that means to me.

I attend the evening aqua jog classes twice a week. It is not only about the exercise I get. I also enjoy the camaraderie of the women as well as our instructor, Sarah, who always brings a good dose of humor to the pool. Then there are the times when we have gotten together socially to enjoy a happy hour or a meal at a local restaurant. Of course, there is a problem with that. It’s hard to recognize each other when we’re not wearing our swimsuits!

In other words, it’s not just about the swimming. It’s so much more. That leaves me with a problem. How can I adequately thank you for all that you’ve brought to my life at the Rye Y? I’ll just have to say “thank you” but there ought to be a word that says so much more.
