Senior members like Dr. Phillip R Harris are a large part of our YMCA here in La Jolla.  “In my mid 80’s, I use the fitness center and the pool at the Y daily. I especially enjoy watching the young children learning to swim. My visits to the Y contribute to my physical and psychological health and long life!”
