Rye Y Story Project: Lorrayne and Terri

Lorrayne & TerriLorrayne: I joined the Y 31 years ago. I love everything about coming here. Swimming is great because it doesn’t bother my knees. In the pool I walk half the lane and then swim the other half. I would swim even more but I don’t have a car and rely on rides. I just feel so good after coming here – I can’t put it into words.

Teri: I’ve been a member most of my life. I learned to swim at the Y and was on the swim team. Now, I enjoy playing racquetball and love Nora’s yoga classes. She is such a wonderful instructor – if you have body issues, she shows you how to modify poses. I like that there is something for everyone here – swimming, Zumba, even non-physical activities. I think the Y is a great resource for the community and was so grateful to be able to take hot showers here during Hurricane Sandy. Plus, the Y is such an asset for my mother’s health and well-being.
