The Y is a Lifeline During Times of Need
Bill Euster and his wife, Sally, joined the YMCA shortly after it first opened, and used the Y a great deal over the years. Sally was diagnosed with cancer in 2001, and then again in 2006 after a four year remission.
“During her treatment Sally required a great deal of rest. When she was resting, I would run errands and get a workout in at the Y,” said Bill. Sally passed away in 2008.
“Since her death, the Y has been a real lifeline for me. I use the weight machines and participate in the active older adult classes several times a week. It is not just the exercise, however, that makes the Y so important to me. It is first and foremost the people - both staff and friends with whom to have fun and to play.”
