Two of the Rye Y's veteran staff members, both from the Aquatics Department, are diving into new roles. Sheila Viger has stepped into the Assistant Aquatics Director position formerly held by Liz Koenig. Pam Villeneuve will serve as the Health and Safety Coordinator.
Sheila began teaching swim lessons at the Y in 1993 as a volunteer. Even then, she was no stranger to the Y's pool. "The Rye Y has always been part of my life," she recently commented. "I learned to swim here. I was a member of the WaveRyeders team. I believe in the Y values."

Watch for our annual Story Project exhibit in our main stairwell before the end of the month. You'll get to know our staff and members, including Emilio whose story is below:
"We moved to Rye last year and one of the first things we did was join the Y. We wanted to make sure our children felt welcome in the community. And what better place to come for social interaction and activities?"
