To the editor:
Parts of the new CLC YMCA are opening for us day by day. I want to express my gratitude to management and staff for the planning they did for life during construction. They enabled many of us to keep at our routines – whether tennis, weights, treadmills, bikes, or Nautilus – surrounded by construction tarps and almost invisible working crews. This was an extraordinary feat and we, children and adults, have benefited from that planning.
The new locker rooms opened last week. They are uplifting – fresh, spacious, thoughtfully planned, responsive to needs, accommodating privacy – and easily cleaned.
Thank you, Dennis Anderson, Meagan Hamblett, the board of directors, and the staff of the Y for keeping the programs and equipment accessible during construction, and for the years, months, days, and hours of planning for what surely will be considered an outstanding YMCA facility.
