We joined the JCC in 1993 so my youngest son could go to preschool there since we heard they had the best program in the area then and I'm sure now as well. We have stayed members ever since and will continue to support this vital resource to the community. I was a very active volunteer there while my son attended preschool, leading a major fundraiser, Rafflemania which was very successful. I later became a board member there as well. All my experiences with the JCC have been nothing but positive and FUN! The staff there is all wonderful and a joy to work with!

The JCC is a home for all ages from infants thru the elderly. The Day Care and pre-Kindergarten are considered among the best in Broome County. The weekly meetings for the seniors is a highlight for that age group which stays connected by volunteering their services. The facilities are first rate and attract a large number of non-Jewish members. Last but not least is a first rate Day Camp and Sports program.

Our family of four is very blessed by the JCC. We primarily use the fitness room and the pool but also enjoy some community events. The staff are excellent; we enjoy the young people who are working their way through school and admire the commitment of the professionals. Our children are not involved in the programming but it is obvious the staff are attentive and programs rich. The diverse cultural mix of folks who utilize the Center is a delight as well. The dedication to Jewish heritage combined with the open-ness to include others in the facility makes our membership all the sweeter. The cleanliness, safety and overall operation of the Center are excellent. We love our membership at the Center!

I use the JCC swimming pool for about nine year now, and I absolutely love. It's always nice and clean there and people are very friendly.

The JCC is a wonderful community institution. I love the gym, the heated pool, and the many activities that take place there. The pool offers water exercises, and once one has taken a few classes, one can do the exercices on one's own on the days the classes are not offered. The health club is warm and inviting, and always has a daily copy of the local newspaper.
In short, the JCC is a place where everybody knows your name, and is an asset to the community.

I have been a member of the JCC for 17 years. Swimming in the pool is such a pleasure because the water is warm and it's rarely crowded. I used to attend their family-oriented activities with my kids when they were younger but we all still enjoy their lectures and classes. It's just a friendly place with a real community feel.

Both of my daughters have attended preschool at the JCC. The staff is wonderful, and the facility is exceptional. I am fortunate to have found such a place, one that allows me to go to work every morning secure in the knowledge that my kids are safe and well cared for.

I attended water exercise classes for a number of years after a physical therapist suggested them. Very freindly and welcoming environment. Three years ago I joined the JCC, mainly as a way to show my support for this valuable member of our community.

The JCC has been my home since infancy. Walking through the front doors, I can dependably find a familiar face and excited smile. The members and staff which make up this incredible center have both inspired and helped to define me. Twenty four years later, I still feel at home within its walls. Thanks JCC! I feel privileged to be a part of such an incredible community.

I believe the JCC offers a number of great services for our community. It has stepped up to offer expanded child care, after-school and snow day care for children of all ages. I use its fitness room facilities and find the equipment and assistance to be first-rate. My family takes advantage of the pool for swimming and lessons. Both my 7 year-old son and 3 year-old daughter have learned to swim there through the excellent tutelage of the swim instructors. Overall, the JCC's greatest asset is its staff and volunteers who are friendly and helpful. I think this is a hidden gem and as a Christian, I agree with its slogan: The JCC is for Everybody!
