NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The following is a weekly update from Rich McCarty Chief Executive Officer, New Rochelle YMCA:

Friends, so, here I am in my 6th week in New Rochelle.

Thanks to all for your extravagant welcome. (I'm) meeting more people every day. If I haven't met you yet please take the time and introduce yourself.

I have spent time with many different people in these last few weeks: educators, community leaders, healthcare professionals, Rotarians in New Rochelle and Pelham, county representatives, and our Mayor Noam Bramson.

My message is the same to all:

Our Y needs to be at the table whenever we are having a discussion about:

Youth development, before and after-school care, pre-school, summer camp, swim lessons, healthy living disease prevention through proactive exercise, senior fitness, swimming and health and wellness classes in the pool and on land, social responsibility - creating more opportunities for those who need financial aid and funding the mission through our annual support campaign; offering support for our homeless population.

And other than the mission of the Y, there are the practical things which need doing here at the Y:


We have a great vendor partner who was able to resuscitate an old unit and provide cooling air to our racquetball corridor for the first time in a long time.

Next, the second floor office area (personally, I will enjoy getting that), but first the locker room area.


Signups are ahead of schedule for YMCA Camp Ne Roc.

Great news! I hereby make you all ambassadors of our Y. Please get the word out: a great summer with a pool, field trips and the best camp staff around.


We are developing new staff members into meeting my expectations of Y excellence. This can and will take time. Please be patient with them as they learn the curriculum, the systems and the people. Remember what it was like when you first started a new job. Offer constructive feedback, please, and let's be a welcoming village for all our new people - not just me.
