School’s In—New Hours
What happened to the summer? Decatur Schools started this week and the others are soon to follow. Come this Monday, Aug 6, the pool hours are changing as kids and guards hit the books. The pool will open at 1 PM on weekdays. The Concession Stand will be closed on weekdays but will be open on weekends. Early morning swim will continue from 6 am – 9 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays in August with the last one on Thursday, Aug 30. Confused? You can always check out the pool hours on the website: http://venetianpools.org
Parking Lot Traffic Flow
Careful! Please observe the marked traffic flow in the parking lot. The parking lot exit is the most southern access on Scott Boulevard, the closest to downtown Atlanta. Be sure to not turn into this access when entering the parking lot from Scott Boulevard. And as tempting as it might be to do otherwise, it is one-way only going from the Merrill Street side of the lot to the main lot. Be sure to follow the arrows painted on the lot and help keep our parking lot safe.
The policy for Venetian Pools guest passes is simple: use ‘em or lose ‘em. So round up your guest passes, look up some friends, and start making plans!
A Challenge, a Lap, a Soldier, a Card—cont.
A recap: Venetian 40 Mile Challenge; total miles to date reach Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, home base of Charley Doonan, son of Pat and Laura Doonan; Charley now in Afghanistan with 130o heat; card commemorating this effort and sending him good wishes for a speedy return to the blue waters of Venetian. The card, created by Elizabeth Lide, is now at the front desk. Be sure to stop by and sign it.
Thanks to all who participated in the two Town Hall meetings this summer. The Membership Committee will discuss the points raised and complete their proposal. The completed proposal will be posted on the Members Only portion of the website and a vote will be taken during the annual Board election. Contact Cheryl Graves, email@example.com , the Membership Committee Chair, with any questions or comments.
