I really enjoyed reading something POSITIVE about the possibility of having a Y.
My wife and I are new to the state, and Torrington specifically. We come from a much larger city in Indiana but looked forward to the advantages of living in a small town.
In touring the town, we found many positives but some negatives, too. Everyone we have met has made us feel so welcome. Passing anyone on the street, it’s like we’re friends and not strangers. Even passing a stranger in our vehicles, there is almost always a wave of friendship.
The businesses we have supported in town, we have made great friendships, too. This has all really impressed us. New, long-lasting friendships have been accomplished in a very short time.
We looked at what amenities (facilities) Torrington has and what events and activities it has to offer when we first visited. One thing sorely lacking was not having a Y.
At the Y we had in our city, it had all kinds of programs for children and adults. So many choices, and the facilities were great, too. I have been to another small town that had a workout facility. However, it did not offer enough facilities for the whole family.
A Y here could provide a facility the whole family could enjoy. And the county facilities as a whole, being looked at by prospective and new residents (to help the area grow and prosper), would be judged favorably.
The “communities” affected should be able to vote. Well stated, Johnny Wright, and also Neil Newman!
