It’s “Y” I support the LH YMCA pool campaign | News, Sports, Jobs
(Editor’s note: This is the second in a series related to the Lock Haven YMCA’s fundraising efforts to reopen its indoor pool.)
My name is Tyler Miller and I am the new program director at the Lock Haven branch YMCA.
I was delighted to take this position to learn that ultimately the pool will be under my management.
I grew up in the area and know that swimming had a positive impact on my childhood. Not only was I a part of the swim team, which encourages sportsmanship and camaraderie in team sport at a young age, but I can also attribute the endurance I had for long-distance running. in high school to exercise in the swimming pool. I have had a lot of memories happening at the pool, whether it was fun with friends, a winning swim season, or in general just the relaxed atmosphere of the water that I still talk about today. .
It seems it’s becoming more and more common to hear about communities losing swimming pools, so I’m happy to support the campaign to restore one here at the Lock Haven branch.
Ultimately, swimming pools are a useful tool not only for our children, but also for people of all ages and for our community as a whole.
I can’t wait for our pool to reopen so that so many memories can be made as if I had a child. I look forward to meeting new faces at the facility with the reopening of the Lock Haven YMCA pool.
