Opinion: Ode to a Gleason YMCA legend

May 2, 2024

Dear editor, 

Physical issues prevent me from going the Gleason YMCA as I once did. What follows below is a shout out to one of the many people I enjoyed knowing there.

                On what I say you can depend,
                About a certain local legend.

                If you go to the "Y",
                He will always say "Hi".

                We all know him as Brendan.

Theodore "Tortoise" Amaral

P.S. "Tortoise" is the nickname Brendan bestowed upon me for my speed walking around the indoor track at the "Y".
