Pool Hours Correction
Apologies to all and especially to any who were inconvenienced by the pool hours published in last week’s eSplash. The hours were correct for last week (8/4 through 8/7) however; the Monday-Thursday hours for this week (including yesterday; 8/11 thru 8/14) are 6am to 10 am and then 1pm to 9pm. Pool hours have been corrected on the website calendar.
Board of Directors Nominees
The six nominees for the four opening Board of Director positions are: Sean Dammann, James Hanna, Catherine Moore, Pat Solomon, Paul Thim, and Jill Thompson. A BIG Thanks to these folks for volunteering to run. Pictures and a short introduction for each nominee will be made available before the voting period which begins on Monday August 18 and goes through Tuesday September 2.
Swim-a-thon 2014, Saturday August 16
Now is the time to register or donate for 4th Annual Swim-a-thon on Saturday, August 16, to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer. Registrants will be swimming from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m., but you can participate by donating any time! This event is in honor of our own Venetian Poolshark, Katherine (Kate) Athanassiades. Kate, who is 17, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in September 2010 and underwent neurosurgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. She has been a Poolshark for 12 years, a Junior Shark coach and a Junior Guard. For the combined first three years of this event, Venetian has raised over $17,000. Let’s see if we can match or surpass our goal of $5,000 this year!! You can set up a donation page or donate by going to: https://www.firstgiving.com/curechildhoodcancer/venetian-for-cure-2014 or contact Elizabeth Woodcock for to register for the event and receive a donation form.
