Cool Pool News – 2023 – No. 13

August is fast disappearing.
And the sun still hot as ever
But there’s still lots of swim time left.
With time management, you must be clever.

Pool is open 11am-9pm
Daily until school goes back.
From Monday 21st, it opens at 1pm
As back to real life, we must track…

Thanks to all who support the Summerfest a couple of weeks ago.¬† Like the Postal Service, neither rain, nor hail, sleet or snow (or in our case wild thunderstorms with possible tornadoes!) can stop us from gathering!¬† Thank goodness for the pavilion to shelter in (the money for building it, was raised at similar events back in 1999!)¬† Your support and financial generosity keep this pool open as our ‘neighborhood back yard.’
FRIDAY FOOD TRUCK¬†FRIDAY — Empanadas De Mendoza ‚ÄĒ August 11 – 5 pm-7 pm
Take favorites of the Old World and serve them up with a smile from the New World, and you have delicious and delectable empanadas from this week’s Food Truck РEmpanadas De Mendoza. You can check out their menu and pre-order at  Walk-ups welcome.

Every¬†Tuesday from 7-8pm, take a float to the¬†pool¬†and enjoy the chaos with others!¬† Enjoy an ice cream float at Kathy’s Korner¬†from 7.30-8.15pm¬†– just $1 each.¬† Make a night of it and enjoy pizza, available¬†from 6-7pm¬†at Kathy’s Korner, with proceeds supporting the Barracudas Swim Team. Please check the sign-up genius on the website¬†¬†as there is currently no-one signed up to scoop¬†on August 15th¬†– a float-less float night doesn’t sound so much fun!!¬† All supplies are provided – just follow the instructions in Kathy’s Korner.

There is STILL a TON of lost and found laundry at the pool, most of which has been there for weeks.  Please continue to check the piles and you may find things that belong to you (and you may not realize they were missing!!). 
Now that it’s August, please take what you need, leave what you don’t from the laundry bins.¬† Towels and clothing, swimsuits and floaties – if you can use it, please enjoy.¬† “Shop” for next year – there are loads of SWIMSUITS – remember kids grow during the year…. We are happy to “recycle” within our¬†pool¬†community, as all leftover items are donated at the end of the season.

Every Sunday, the pool opens at 10am for one hour of ADULT SWIM TIME.  Come float, get some lengths in, or just enjoy the company and peaceful surroundings before the chaos begins at 11am!

That’s all for this week!¬†¬†
