Mary Ellen's sign now

To: Carmelita Gallo, Senior Vice President/Chief Operating Officer



YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas



601 N. Akard St.



Dallas TX 75201







We, the undersigned, are members in good standing of the Town North YMCA, and we respectfully and strongly request that your organization reverse the February 4, 2008 termination of Mary Ellen Elkhay.



Mary Ellen has been a motivator to many of us in our quest to become stronger, healthier and more fit. Her cheerful demeanor and uplifting spirit have constantly greeted us when we come to the Y.







However, a recent incident with a supervisor (who had made unreasonable and nonsensical demands regarding fitness equipment) caused her to be branded insubordinate. All Mary Ellen had done was ensure that the participants in her Core class had sufficient exercise bands to use in her class. When a supervisor insisted that all such bands remain in the classroom down the hallwhere they werent being used at the time and to where Mary Ellen ensured they would be returned after the classthe supervisor deemed Mary Ellens behavior as disobedient, regardless of the fact that her actions were simply done to ensure that gym members were able to perform the exercises in her popular class.







Mary Ellen, as you probably know, survived a stroke at the end of 2006. The outpouring of support and affection for her was nothing short of overwhelming. Granted, it took her a few months before she was able to return to work at her previous capacity, but when she returned, she faced discrimination and resistance at every turn.







It is our contention that the Town North YMCA was simply looking for a reason to terminate Mary Ellen, and used a trumped-up insubordination charge to do their dirty work for them.







We ask that the YMCA reconsider its decision to remove one of it's members most favorite trainers and instructers and reinstate Mary Ellen Elkhay.
