I came to the Rye Y in 2000 for an interview with Robert because they needed a housekeeper. And I got the job. I work in the locker room with the members and do the housekeeping job. I like everybody here. Everybody’s nice.

I have made friends in the locker room. I have gotten to know Chickie and some other members and I enjoy seeing these people when I come to work.

I like to work here because of my free membership. I’ve lost a lot of weight. When I started here I had 20 more pounds. I lost 20 pounds by myself! I like the elliptical and the Arc Trainer and the little weights – not a lot of weight. The staff in the Fitness Center taught me. I’ve thought about a class – I want to try Zumba!
