My family has lived in Rye for over 60 years. I used to come here when I was a little girl. My dad was a national swimming champion and was in the 1952 Olympic trials. My uncle Jack coached basketball and baseball in the Bronx. He was a fixture here in Rye. I believe the Curran family has a brick here on the wall.

We joined the Y in 2013 after my husband passed. My husband had cancer and we lost him at 42. My kids were 4, 10 and 12. It has made an incredible difference for my kids to come to the Y and have a place to swim and exercise.

The Y has helped us manage belonging here and we are so grateful. It has made a huge difference in our lives.
