Good morning all, [June 30, 2015]

I hope you all are enjoying being back at the pool. Yes we did have 500 JROTC kids coming in and out the first 5 day we re-opened but it did bring us a huge revenue that we missed out on last year. I found these kids to be very respectful and dont think the messes were too big.

Please help me pass the word to those that dont have computers that the pool will be closed Saturday July 4th and Sunday July 5th. There have been many comments about why the pool closes so much now and I would like to take this time to clear that up as much as possible. The additional closures do not have anything to do with me needing time off because actually I still have to come in three times every day just to take care of filters and chemicals and these closures are generally just around the holidays. I have to look at the holidays and the days before and the days after and see if they are profitable or not and make a decision on whether to stay open or close. I know I would probably get a handful of patrons that would be able to come in but a few dollars wont even pay the lifeguard let alone the rest of the costs. So please work with me and try to understand why the decisions are made.

Oh and there was a problem with the hot water in the mens shower room and that problem is being addressed and should be fixed today. It is most likely the mixing valve that was broke so it was not allowing the cold water to mix with the hot therefore only getting hot water. Thank you and please have a safe and happy holiday.
