Social Events at the Pool
The pool’s social committee is very excited to roll out a great summer line-up of activities. All pool events are volunteer-driven and can’t happen without someone stepping up to the plate. Please see where a coordinator is needed, and volunteer by contacting Jody Gan at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Father’s Day Children’s Magic Show and Popsicles Sunday, June 18th TBA
Young and old can spend some special time with dad or granddad at a magic show under the pavilion. This is a favorite activity of our younger crowd, so we’ll need some help to organize and schedule so we don’t interfere with naptime.

It’s THE party of the season and an NCCSPA tradition. We’ll supply the burgers (beef and veggie), hot dogs and fixings and an afternoon of fun-filled activities for all ages. From sack races to the coin toss to the belly flop contest, and of course the highly competitive “family” raft race, you will not want to miss the festivities. Stay tuned for the volunteer sign up.
Adult Trivia Night and Salsa (eating not dancing) Competition: Saturday: June 30 or July 14 at 7:30pm
