The Marion YMCA was my first job working with boys. I remember a grade school just up the hill from the YMCA and the kids running down that hill and into this building as soon as school was out each day. They would fill the lounge/games room with laughter which was just across from the sign-in desk.

Just down the first floor hall was “The Cage” where kids would change clothes for the gym or pool.  A staircase to its right led to the men’s health club.  In the back of “The Cage” were cement stairs that led up to the gymnasium.  A side step of stairs led to two racquetball courts. 

Now the Marion Y is located at the old Coliseum building that has been resonated for the new Y.  Yet I wonder what became of this old building and the pool?  Anyone know?
