This week at the pool...

Tuesday Is Our Last Ladies Night

We hold out last Ladies Night on Tuesday, August 14th, 7-10 p.m.

As usual, the pool will close to non-party goers at 8:45 p.m. so that the ladies can enjoy a quiet evening together without a care.

Cost: $5.00 for pool members, $7.00 for guests. No free coupons accepted.

Bring and salad, appetizer or dessert to share. Soft drinks will be provided. Bring your own wine or beer.

Door prize raffle. Need at least 15 people to have event.

If you haven't RSVPed on Facebook or by email, please do so quickly to our socials director, Sherri Spritzer, at

Next Water Dance Fitness Classes

Looks like we're going to have a bonus Water Dance Fitness class!

Our rain make-up will be held tomorrow, Aug. 13th, 7:30 p.m. The bonus session will be held Aug. 20th at the usual time.

No charge to KMSC members; $5 each to nonmembers.

We're still offering to reimburse those payments to any nonmember who subsequently joins the pool by the end of the summer! Contact Amie Wohlfarth, our membership director, for details at or 240-505-5569.

Lost 'n Found

We're getting ready to donate the three bicycles that have been sitting on our clubhouse porch unclaimed for at least two summers.

The bikes are going to be turned over to Bikes for the World. If we're mistaken and they haven't simply been "stored" here, contact Mary Crowley IMMEDIATELY at because she'll be hauling them away sometime 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
