To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I participated in the Pittsfield Y’s Tie Dye Dash, a noncompetitive race designed for all ages and abilities. It was so much fun and so gratifying to hear the laughter and see the expressions of glee on the faces of the racers and spectators alike.

The Pittsfield YMCA does an outstanding job in serving the community. It gets a five-star rating in my book. Special thanks to Kaylyn Kern and her crew for seeing that the race ran so smoothly.
