To the editor:

As a member of our local YWCA I am very disappointed in the deterioration of the women’s locker room. The rust on most lockers inside and out is unsafe. The showers are also unsafe. It obviously needs a complete overhaul. Women and children use these lockers six days a week. Our local community hopefully will step up to assist in renovating. The diversity of members represented at YWCA is celebrated. Men are also welcomed. The range of classes are many. Water aerobics in a 84-degree pool, cooking classes, exercise in the new gym and children's programs are just a few to mention. It should be a world-class facility and is a block away from the ballpark and Congdon Yards. Our community is moving forward, embracing the future and presenting a “new” High Point. Let ’s make our YWCA shine as visitors from around the world make their way into our community. How about temporary passes for our Market visitors? This is my plea to bring the YWCA into the 21st century.
