This week at the pool… 5/23 – 5/29

Dear KMSC Member,

The clock is ticking down quickly now until the pool opens (click here to activate) …


Our doors will open wide at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 28th!

Just three days to go! Is your swimsuit unpacked? Did you fix your goggles? Have you stocked up on swim diapers and a snug pair of rubber pants for your toddler? Did you buy a fresh latex swim cap yet? It’s time!

Your pool already is shipshape for your return, thanks to the volunteers who swept away winter debris, cleared brush, pulled weeds, hauled out the refrigerators and freezers, put in the ladders, cleaned the toilets, scrubbed bathroom floors, washed the deck chairs, set up the deck toys, vacuumed the carpet, replaced lightbulbs… the list goes on and on.

You’ll find the baby pool freshly white-coated, too, to protect those little feet, and rotting picnic tables have been replaced…

new picnic tables being delivered

… new lighting, new changing table pads, a new lane rope reel, and much more! Time to set your watches for opening day!
