Hey, Evelyn.

I don't know how I missed your first post on this subject, but I am so sorry to hear about this. I know you've been swimming there for a long time and having the pool closed would be devastating to you and all of the other folks who call it their "home" pool.

Hopefully the City of Yonkers will put on their thinking caps and come up with other ways to trim costs without closing the pool.

Your swim friend,

Debaru

:badday::badday:The Mark Twain Pool has been closed indefinitely. The Yonkers Masters Swim Team is homeless. It's really very sad:(

Hello Deb!
Thank you very much for your support. It's really sad - trying to figure out my next strategy. A lot of "speedism" exists in this area; it's very discouraging.........
