This week at the pool...

KMSC news for 6/13 - 6/19

Celebrate Father's Day poolside

Bring your guy to the pool and make it a day!

Kids will be able to make a card/gift for dad poolside from 2-4 p.m. Sunday (June 19), while we warm up the gas grill (non-kosher) so that it will be hot for you to make dinner from 3-7 p.m.

We'll also have ice cream treats on sale (kosher and non-kosher) for $2 while supplies last.

Speaking of food...

The Snack Bar is open!

Swimming can make you hungry, so the lifeguards want you to know:

They're staffing the Snack Bar every hour that the pool is open! Don't see someone in "the cage" when you have a snack attack? Get the attention of a guard in the front office! Don't go hungry because we have a great menu from burgers to fruit snacks to Italian ices.

The 'Roos take on the Tigers this week

The pool will open a bit late Saturday (June 18) to accommodate the first home meet of the summer for the Kemp Mill Kangaroos.

Members will be able to swim starting at 1 p.m., once the Tanglewood Tigers have cleared out and the grounds have been cleaned up by the 'Roos.

But that doesn't mean you have to wait to come to the pool! The 'Roos would love to have you poolside, cheering them on.

And the Kangaroo Kafe will be open, serving breakfast items as the meet is getting under way and lunch once the meet reaches the breaststroke and butterfly events.

The pool also will be opening at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 9th, when Flower Hill will be the visiting team.

We'll be closing early at 5 p.m. for a few evening meets beginning Wednesday, June 22, against the Kenmont Tsunami; Wednesday, June 29, against the Twinbrook Ducks, and Wednesday, July 6, against the Forest Knolls Seahawks.

Stay for dinner! The Kafe will be serving Ben Yehuda pizza at those evening meets.
