Shared Memories of Jewish Community Center [Meyers]

I visited that JCC weekly for about 2 months in the early 70's, probably 1970 or 71. I was 16, from the East Side, and the JCC is on the West Side. It was opulent! It had every sort of activity you could imagine. The pool, where I learned to SCUBA dive, was reportedly the largest in Detroit at that time. That's why the Y.M.C.A. utilized that particular pool. It also had a really high diving board with a very high ceiling. Hope this is of some interest to you.

When I moved to northwest Detroit in 1948, the site of the Meyers JCC was called Meyers Woods and my Brownie troupe from Schulze School used to hike there and roast marsh mellows at campfires. We were so excited when they started construction because the JCC at Dexter and Davison was so far away
and now we had only a few blocks to walk.

I was a counselor at the JCC summer day camp for 3 years, from in 1957 to 1959, and the last year I received 2 hours credit towards my Wayne State U. teaching degree.
