“We have always appreciated the Y.  Just… everything about it.  The customer service, and just everything everyone there does to make working out as enjoyable as possible.  We are in… unique times, no doubt.  But we are all in this together, and get to get through it together.  I am just so happy to hear that by people continuing to pay their membership fees that it allowed you to pay your employees so they could keep working.”
