Huntington Y Re-Opens After Saturday Morning Fire

The YMCA Staff must have been working overtime after the fire in the Women's Locker Room on Saturday Morning, January 30, 2010. By Sunday morning, the pools were open and the Strength Training Center was going Strong! (Sorry, sometimes I just can't resist a pun -- even a poor one.)

By Monday morning when I finally showed up to swim, there was hardly a trace of smoke-smell throughout the building... perhaps that was due to the numerous LARGE air filters scattered throughout the halls, (see picture at left), and in the Men's Locker Room. The Sauna is closed and I'm not sure when the Women's Locker Room will be available -- in the meantime, the Girls Locker Room is being fully utilized.

Kudos to the Y Staff and Management for their quick work on Saturday and for getting us back up and running, (or swimming, as the case may be), as fast as humanly possible -- it is MUCH appreciated as some of us tend to get a mite cranky without our daily dose of chlorine!
