This week at the pool...

8/6 - 8/12/2018

Last Ladies Night Next Week

Hurry up and RSVP to for our last Ladies Night of the season on Tuesday, Aug. 14, 7-10 p.m.!

Bring a friend, an appetizer, salad, or dessert, and your enthusiasm for an evening floating under the stars like member Grace Eisenhuth (at right)! BYOB too. Soft drinks will be provided.

The fee is $5 for pool members, $7 for non-pool members. (Non-member attendees need to be guests of a pool member who is present at the event.)

We need a minimum number of 15 members and guests for this event to occur!

Next Water Dance Fitness Classes

Looks like we're going to have a Water Dance Fitness class on our planned rain date, Aug. 13th, 7:30 p.m. And we may have some bonus sessions but for sure our upcoming dates are

  • Monday, August 6th
  • Monday, August 13th

That's our instructor (at left), Miriam Lasar, rollin' along to the music!

The classes are being offered at no charge to KMSC members and for $5 each to nonmembers.

We'll reimburse those payments to any nonmember who subsequently joins the pool by the end of the summer!

We also have a new special deal on tap now for all our trial members who convert to full membership -- full access to the pool until we close for the season if you pay off the first half of your share now.

For the rest of this offer, please contact our membership director, Amie Wohlfarth, at ,

Fun Under the Lights for Our Teens

The pool might have had to close for an incident... but we WERE able to regroup and hold Teen Night on Sunday.

At right (L-R), Elijah, Julie, Amber, Erick, Tabby, and Carlos.

Many thanks to Amie Wohlfarth for hosting!

Your Dues Dollars at Work!

President's Message

The first week of August is done...and over the next couple of weeks, some of our staff will be heading off to college, some for the first time!

Please be sure to thank them for their work this summer and to wish them well the next time you are at the pool.

A special thank-you to our operators, Becca, Dylan, Tess, and Laursen.

Btw, there are three bicycles that have been sitting on our clubhouse porch for at least two summers. I suspect that they were nicked and then abandoned there, and at this point the original owners would have outgrown them. We're getting ready to donate them to a worthy cause, so if we're mistaken and they belong to your kids, please contact Mary Crowley IMMEDIATELY at because she'll be hauling them away next week.

Also, our board's next meeting is Aug. 30th, 7:30 p.m., poolside when we'll be talking about what worked and what didn't this summer, how we used your dues dollars to spiff up the place, and more. Please join us -- we need to hear from our members!

We also have two vacancies on the board. Are you interested? Please let the chairman of our nomination committee know, Len Wagman, at
