Updates for the Week of June 10th

Hello Kent Gardens!

As we get ready for the REAL summer to begin - in other words, the kids will be out of school soon - here are a few reminders and information about the upcoming weeks.

School’s Out for Summer…
Our “Summer Hours” kick in on Friday! Beginning June 14, the pool will be open from 10:30am to 9:00pm every day. Yes, every day - including the 4th of July! We open an hour earlier than years past too. (Don’t worry Arlington kids, in August you’ll be swimming while the others are back in school!)

Sometimes it’s different…
Of course, as we have two amazing teams - the Swim Team & the Dive Team- there will be times that the pool is closed for meets and team activities. All of the closures are listed on the Calendar Section of the KGRC website. We will also update members of early closings/ late openings via our text system (Sign up here!) and email updates like this. When there is a home meet on Saturday mornings, the pool usually opens around noon. Not on a team? You are always welcome to come out to watch, cheer on and support our Dolphins!

Let’s Get Physical…
Also starting June 18, is our beloved Adult Lap Swim. If you are one of the dedicated fitness buffs who enjoy that early morning lap swim, your time is here! “Adult Swim” will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 - 7:30 am.

Sensory Swim
Did you know that KGRC offers some special swim times for our members who need a quieter, calmer atmosphere when swimming. We call this “Sensory Swim” and offer it before regular pool hours on certain days throughout the summer. If you have a family member who would benefit from this calmer swim time, please contact Board member, Claudia Tielking at [email protected] so she can help you decide if this is best for you. Sensory Swim times are listed on the pool calendar.

And we’ll have Fun, Fun, Fun….
Oh yes! Lots of it. Let’s start with Float Nights! For the rest of the month of June we will hold float nights every Sunday night from 7:00pm - closing. BYOF - Bring Your Own Float! (Please try to keep it a reasonable size.)

Before you know it, the 4th of July will be here! And since that always feels like the hottest day of the year, may as well spend it at the pool! Board member Lauren Braccia is planning a fun afternoon of games, music and prizes for the 4th. (Oh, and since several members requested it the pool will stay open until 9:00.) In addition, this summer there will be a Teen Night and Dive-In Movie night. Look to the KGRC website calendar for dates and times for these. We’ll also announce things like this on Facebook.

Do you want to hold your own pool party? Members can reserve a couple of tables on the deck for a party of up to 25 guests. ($5 per guest applies.) Just fill out the Request Form on the KGRC website, and you'll shortly receive a confirmation. It’s good to check the calendar first to make sure it’s available then.

We are a busy Board and we enjoy creating a fun, safe place for your family to enjoy the summer days. If you are interested in learning more about the Board or helping with activities, please let us know! We would love to have you.

See you at the pool!
