We went swimming during Family swim on Friday. The lifeguards were very patient with my little one who passed the swim test, but she was really nervous before! We had a lot of fun and even Bumped into Mrs. Lemasters that evening who is always a pleasure to talk to.

I like how most programs are free/included in the membership. I really appreciate the investment in the Brandywine location's gym, however, especially with recent emergency maintenance on the South Pool, I feel like the pools did not get the TLC the rest of the gym received.

Magnolia, DE
Always like the senior swimming program. Criticism is that massive renovation done to women's showers in the 4-lane pool this summer and now there are no shelves in the individual showers anymore. The company that did the renovation should replace these shelves. They didn't even last six months. This is inconvenient not to have shelves in the shower. Thanks.

Dover, DE
I think it would be great if a certain Dover Y employee didn’t screenshot a member survey that was received and send it to her friends with members’ names on there and what the members shared in anonymity on the survey. I feel like this is a violation of privacy, correct? I know I certainly did NOT check the box below stating that it is ok to share my name (or my daughter’s name, which is the name that popped up on the survey, because she was the last one to scan in that day I’m assuming?). Hopefully someone other than this particular person will see this comment. You might want to reconsider who you are trusting with the members’ personal information. I don’t think the other members on the listen 360 screenshot I’m referring to would like their names and comments out there either. Thanks! Have a great day!

Dover, DE

I am the proud/happy parent of 9 children and I am excited to say they were all raised via your people, premises and equipment from- through 1965 via Central Queens YMCA in Jamaica NY via South Ozone Park, Queens to/through Dover Delaware YMCA today. My wife [FIRST NAME REMOVED] Tyrell utilizes your facilities currently. The YMCA has been a significant yet invaluable portion of life from 1965 until now. I am thankful for it and the long line of Ladies first, Mothers, Aunts that steered, guided me to/through it and made sure that I would do the same with all of my own. Your blessed teachings along with the wonderful, superb and excellent examples from your organization no matter where its been located in the US of A.make and allow for my signing this letter on my behalf as E8 1sgt Promotable Lawrence E. Tyrell, U.S. Army Special Forces. We Own the Night.
