Rye Y Story Project: Noreen

NoreenI didn’t know many people when we moved to Rye Brook. My husband was always working. With two children under the age of 3 years, I needed a place for “family.” Tot Drop and Child Watch allowed me to have time to myself and take care of errands for an hour. Meanwhile, my children had fun!

Family swim, dinners and trips are all affordable at the Y. During my early years as a Mom, the Rye Y allowed me to embrace others day to day in a healthy way! I am thankful to the Y – while my children were in class here, I was able to train for the NYC Marathon. Our goal as a family is to keep taking Yoga on Sundays together. I am dedicated to my Yoga practice because of the YMCA and know that good things are to come!

There was a time that I was not working. It was a tough time and the Y made it work for us so we could continue our membership. Our children went to camp with the payment plan and continued to use the facility. Now I am back at work but thankful the Y was there and sensitive to my situation!
