This week at the pool...

6/27 - 7/2

Next Pizza Night dead ahead

The next Pizza Night at the pool is this Sunday, July 3rd during Raft Night, 5-7 p.m. The pizza will be Ben Yehuda's for $3.00 per slice, two slices for $5.00, and a whole pie for $18.00 while it lasts. Soft drinks also will be on sale.

Many, many thanks to everyone who has begun signing up to help out on the deck, slicing and serving pizza at our Pizza Nights at the Pool! The Socials Committee can still use some more helping hands. Please sign up here through Signup Genius if you can volunteer an hour or two on a Sunday evening. Many thanks to Sherri Spritzer for organizing this near-weekly activity!

Ladies enjoy pool time under the stars

Despite predictions of heavy rain and thunderstorms, Sherri Spritzer, our Socials Committee chairperson, reports the first Ladies Night was a great success. Twenty women enjoyed an evening of socializing, eating a light meal of salads, savories, and desserts, and drinking mojitos prepared by their very own bartender, former pool president April Rivers. A toast to April--thanks for hosting this fun evening!
