Y good for young and older

From the time I was 6 to 12 years old, I was in Mother Mayfield Children’s Home on Fair Street. We got to go to the Y and do things that we would not have gotten to do. We even got to do it when we got home from the children’s home. It is a good cause for folks who do not have the income and kids who could not do it otherwise. I think it’s a very good cause. I’m growing older and it would be a place for me to afford to go exercise.

We got to do archery, swimming, crafts and mingle with a lot of kids, and that helps you learn to mingle with people later in life. I think about those times today even in my late 50s and how good they were. They taught me responsibility and to finish a task. Some say the old Y failed. No, it did not. It did not fail me.
