KGRC President's July 15 Update

Hello Kent Gardens Members,

We hope you are enjoying your summer, having fun with our teams and meeting new friends at the pool. There are still lots of fun activities left in the summer! Here’s a look at some upcoming events over the next two weeks…

Dive In Movie Night!

One of the most beloved nights of the year will be here this Saturday, July 20. Bring your floats to the pool and plan to stay late to watch a family-friendly movie. We’ll start the movie as soon as it gets dark so you’ll want to be ready by 8:00. We'll have popcorn, of course, and the Snack Shack will be open until 9:00 that night for more goodies and drinks. Stay tuned to Facebook and Instagram where we will announce the movie selection later this week!!

Schedule Changes

We have a few Dolphin team events coming up that effect our regular pool hours. Please mark your calendar so there are no disappointed little ones when you arrive. 

Our winning Dive team will host two more home meets to wrap up the dive season - this Tuesday, July 16 and on July 23. The pool will close at 4:00 those days to prepare.

Our Swimmers will hold an intra-squad swim meet this Sunday morning, July 21. The pool will open around noon, and the Swim team Grill Dads will be selling the best burgers, hot dogs, and fries in McLean! 

Finally, our Swim and Dive teams will celebrate their amazing season with the annual Awards Banquet on Sunday, July 28. The pool will close at 4:00 so the teams can celebrate!  

Float Nights!

We have all enjoyed our float nights so much, the board decided, let’s do it all summer! From 6:00pm until closing on Sundays (except July 28), feel free to bring your (reasonably sized) floats to the pool and enjoy some lazy time in the water.

Dog Swim!

Who let the dogs, um,  in?… the pool? We did! Our annual dog swim at the end of the pool season is such a joy for our four-legged friends, and those of us who love them. This year, it will be held on Labor Day, September 2. Are you a dog swim regular? The board would love some help this year with this event. If you are willing to help organize this event, please reach out to [email protected].

Volunteers are the best!

We are forever grateful to all the volunteers who step up to help with pool parties, or swim or dive meets or simply offer some assistance along the way. Our pool is run through volunteer efforts. The Board of Directors always welcomes your input and if you are hoping to have a bigger role in the pool functions, there is room for you. Reach out to us to let us know how you would like to help; we’ll find a place for you! (Email [email protected])

See you at the pool!
