Pool Shark Coach Laura Quade in Bicycle Accident
Junior Sharks coach Laura Quade had a bicycle accident while riding home from the pool last week. She is currently at Grady Hospital with broken bones and in much pain. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Laura’s parents have set up a Caring Bridge site to keep everyone informed of her progress: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lauraquade/mystory

A Big Thanks to our previous and highly acclaimed Pool Secretary and Communications Board Member, Sophia Brothers Peterman, for her donation of a refrigerator for the snack bar. An upright freezer was also purchased and installed by Board member Michael Purser. The snack bar has been re-configured and it is easier to move around and serve our members.
TAPS Growlers Are Going Strong
The growlers have arrived!! So far, 45 growlers have been pre-ordered. For those who’ve pre-ordered, please pick up your growler(s) at TAPS, 1248 Clairmont Rd, Decatur, GA 30030 (across from Publix). We did order some extras that will be first come first served. We will re-order additional growlers as needed.
Work Day Tool Left by Member
A hand saw was left at the pool in the aftermath of the very productive workday that we had at Venetian. It was last seen in the snack bar. If you are missing a saw, contact Michael Purser at email@example.com.
