Because so many parents have asked, we will be having a third session of swim lessons beginning on August 4, 2014. If you want to register your child/children for these lessons, ask the gate keeper at the Town Beach. The last class for the night session will also be held on Monday, August 4th.

The Parks and Recreation Commission would like to thank all of the parents for their support this season. Thank you also to Mrs. Adams for reading a day or two a week. She has been sharing The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with all interested listeners. We are also continuing with our daily activities during the week. We will make bugs again on Monday, August 4. We have a duck hunt on Tuesday, Airhead Bingo on Wednesday, Games on Thursday, and Sand Castle Building on Friday. Come down and join in the fun!

The recreation area will be open through August 23, 2014. Watch for information about pool day.

At this point we are planning Arts and Crafts on some Mondays, Duck Hunt on Tuesday, Airhead Bingo on Wednesday from 2:30- 3:30, Game Day( card games, checkers, yatzee, mancala, Candy Land, etc) on Thursday, and Sand Castle building to be judged on Friday at 3:00.

Thank you to all the support we have received from parents this summer. We pride ourselves on being a safe and happy environment for your children to enjoy throughout the summer. Our lifeguards are on duty from 12:00- 5:00 on weekdays. We are completing our first set of swimming lessons and will be starting our night time set of lesson next week. There will be no night swimming except for lessons the weeks of July 20th and July 27th. If you have not heard about times for your child’s lessons please check in at the pool area. With warm weather, we have had great attendance so far. Because so many parents had asked for weekend hours, we are open on Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00. Please plan on using the pool area with your families on these days. You could even bring a grill and have a cookout. On Saturday, July 19, after the parade we will be open for free swimming and will be sponsoring a cookout as part of Old Home Day. For $2 you will be able to get a hamburger/cheeseburger or hot dog, chips and a drink. If you have any concerns, comments, or questions please contact Minni at the pool area. So, come down and join us for some family fun! We look forward to seeing you!
