Over the past few months, there have been several news reports over the controversy surrounding the Oquirrh Park Fitness Center. Though not a resident of the community, I have been enjoying the facility for several years. I have found the office attendants to be polite, accommodating and diligent in the performance of their duties. The swimming instructors are competent, responsible and caring as they teach the young people, and they hold high expectations for the students in the program.

In spite of the heavy construction in the immediate vicinity, the facility is clean and well maintained. Notices of program offerings and changes of schedules are posted well in advance to benefit patron planning.Often in controversial community activities, the good work is not duly recognized, so I express appreciation to the good people at the fitness center for their earnest efforts.
