To the Editor,
I am writing to thank members of Amherst town council and the mayor for their effort and commitment to support the YMCA pool.
As you may have read in a recent newspaper I was there last Monday with my children when the pool reopened.
I am especially grateful as it was this Monday that my five-year-old son, Cael, swam for the first time. I feel so privileged to have been there to watch him reach this important milestone.
Your commitment to the YMCA, along with that of the YMCA board of directors and the warden and councillors of Cumberland County made this possible.
I truly appreciate the important contribution you have all made to our community and to all of the children and parents who will together share the joys of learning to swim.
Jason Blanch, Amherst
