Shih Yu-Lang Central YMCA Closing after 100 Years!

The Central YMCA has been a fixture on Golden Gate since before the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco and now is closing much to all the members sadness!   The current YMCA was built shortly after the 1906 earthquake by donations mainly from New York city.

Shih Yu-Lang Central YMCA

Chuck - On his favorite Treadmill!

Every month the YMCA prints the work out totals for the members. 

Since this was the last time it would ever happen at this YMCA and it was the last day of the month, Karma decided to do it up right and made the very nice sign with the male/female icons. 

John and I put the placard together for Karma after she did the nice printing. 

We then of course, had to have our photos taken with our handy work!

As usual, a man on the treadmill was checkout out what we were doing and figured, "Oh, it is those two again!" 

We don't care as we always enjoy ourselves.

We hope that the Embarcadero YMCA will be as much fun but we doubt it as Karma will be working the afternoon shift.
