New Life for City Health Club?

Downtown Ithaca's health club, City Health, might not be closing after all.

After reports that poor finances would close City Health after decades of operation, Ithacans stepped forward to try to save the facility, with new and renewed memberships, and outright donations.

As Ithaca Blog reported last week, the news of the closing was met with dismay by Ithacans who enjoyed the casual, friendly atmosphere of the club, and appreciated the club's history of community service.

The response from the community delighted but also surprised the club, which is working on responses for the short and the long term.

The club asks that anyone interested in membership call the club's manager, Frank Henry, at 273-8300.
