Cool Pool News – 2023 – No. 8

Summer is here
And so is the rain
I know we need it
But it’s really a pain

Ever positive we are
That it will soon clear
As there’s fun and good times
At the pool looming near…

LOOKING AHEAD
July 4th is looming up large, so start thinking about the fun at the pool.¬† Especially the bike-trike-scooter parade at 1pm. It’s good old-fashioned fun that the kids love.¬† And on July 3rd, 4pm-6pm, your kids can bring their ‘wheels’ to the pool where they can decorate them in the pavilion area.¬†¬†Bring your own decorations, and perhaps a few to share with others.

A small selection of decorations will be available at the pool, but when you are out and about these next few days, pick some up for your kids to decorate with.¬† It’s fun to be decorate together – and all ‘wheels’ can be left overnight in the pavilion, in readiness for the parade the next day!

TWO THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ‚Äď NEW OUTDOOR SHOWER, SWIMSUIT SPINNER
Located between the outside wall of the ladies room and the filter house (with the fish doors!) there is a swimsuit spinner which can almost completely dry your dripping swimsuit, before you take it home.  Check it out Рeasy to use, and makes for less mess in the swim bag!  No towels please Рjust swim suits.

And, right next to the swimsuit spinner, brand new this year, is an outdoor shower to wash off in, before or after you enjoy the pool.  Or just for a quick cool-off.  Check it out.

Oh, the things you learn if you read all the way to the end…
See you soon, weather be dammed!!!!
