This week at the pool...

6/11 - 6/17/2018

Yard Games at the Pool!

Our new Yard Games at the Pool debuted Sunday!

Thanks to our socials director, Sherri Spritzer, we're holding activities like giant Kerpunk!, Yahtzee, and other games regularly most Sundays in the grassy picnic area from 3-4:30 p.m.

In the photos above, Sherri is helping (l-r, first photo) Marcella (in blue, back only), Donnie (in yellow), Nehora, and Oran play Kerpllunk! and leading a game of Yahtzee below.

Sherri even made the Kerpllunk game! We could still do with contributions of more games and helping hands from more volunteers, but everyone clearly had fun our first afternoon, despite threatening skies!

If you can offer time or games, please contact Sherri at

First Ladies Night Set for June 21

The First Ladies Night of the season is Thursday, June 21st from 7-10 p.m.

You'll get a chance to luxuriate in the quiet of the pool past closing!

Also this week:

Celebrate Father's Day at the Pool next Sunday (6/17).

Enjoy water games and ice cream with dad! $2 treats (kosher and non-kosher) will be available for purchase.

We'll have Yard Games again, too, from 3-4:30 p.m., and rafting at 5 p.m. until closing.

We won't be selling any pizza though. Take those fathers and grandfathers to dinner, lol!
