Quickly thereafter, Shirley was able to get back to her normal, upbeat self.  “The members and staff at the YMCA create a very positive atmosphere; it is unlike any other YMCA that I have come across. I look forward to coming to the Y for Zumba and to help maintain our Wellness Center as a member of the fitness floor staff team. Everybody at the Y is just so great – they are friendly, uplifting and always willing to help anyone out. I find it easier to put a smile on my face after being at the Y each day.” says Shirley.  “The Y has given me the opportunity to meet new people and help them, just like they’ve helped me. I urge everyone to join the Y – it is a wonderful place to be and is full of opportunities to help anyone, no matter what the situation may be.” Shirley stated.
