Mason YMCA is having trouble

Their pool, which is over 30 years old, needs to be replaced. They have held it together with duct tape and baling wire (figurtively) for the last few years, but the circulation system that regulates the water temperature could give out any day. This will signal the death nell for this University District icon if this occurs.

The pool is the driving center piece of the Mason YMCA. It is used by young and old for lap swim, water aerobics, exercise, and swim lessons. If the pool is closed permanently, then the Y will most likely close as well shortly after. This will close the dormitory there as this why is one of the few in the country that still does housing as well as putting several people out of work.

Please donate to the Y for their pool fund. They need $15,000 to replace everything. They accept donations from both members and non members, personal and corporate. Their number is 458-9622.
