I’ve been helping the New Rochelle YMCA in the drive to SAVE its pool, and we’re having a fundraiser this Thursday, March 26. It’s an important cause and WE NEED YOUR HELP. The pool is currently closed and needs repairs to roof. For decades, our YMCA was the place in New Rochelle where kids from all walks of life could learn how to swim. I have great memories of swimming at the YMCA as a kid – I was on the swim team in the 1970s and received my lifeguard certification there. We all must pull together to get the pool reopened ASAP. Please see today’s excellent column in The Journal News about this issue – Phil Reisman Column
Please attend the fundraiser on Thursday night to save the pool from 7 to 9pm at the New Rochelle YMCA (you can park at Home Depot). I’m the co-chair with County Clerk Tim Idoni. All of New Rochelle’s Democrat and Republican elected officials have joined the cause as the host committee and will be attending. Here’s the invite:
