Rye Y Story Project: Roger

RogerHI moved to the area from Taiwan 28 years ago. I tried other Ys in the Westchester area but after comparison – distance wise and convenience wise, I joined the Rye Y. In my first ten years, I came here only 4-5 months each a year due to my extensive travel needs. I found the Y to be a very nice place, even though it was small. I felt comfortable coming in – the people were all warm, nice and sincere.

Now after 26 years of being a member, I know everyone. It’s like family here and that feeling is good.

Everyone needs interaction with other people, especially these days with the popularity of the internet. That’s what makes people happy. I get that here at the Y.
