'I ask and recommend you reconsider'


Make text smaller Make text larger





As Wellness Director of the South Orange Family YMCA, my job is not only to provide our community with a well-trained and compassionate staff of professionals to engage our members in their quest for a healthy life style, but also to find significant ways to assist them in their fitness goals.

Without question, a swimming pool is the most requested fitness tool in our community.

We overcame hurdle after hurdle; money was tediously raised and finally achieved.

The planning for expansion was meticulously mapped out.

Approval was sought for a through-road, planned perfectly and approval was granted.

Then, shockingly to the staff but more significantly, to our members, this approval was rejected.

I am not sure what the genuine reason for this sudden rejection is.

I do know this. Our community, your community is extremely upset. If you honestly wanted a resolution to this traumatic circumstance, we would have one.

I ask and recommend you reconsider.

Sincerely,

Michele Bernieri

Wellness Director

South Orange Family YMCA
