Wow, what a great summer we are having!


Lots more sunny, hot days than I can remember in the past several years! Lots of new lesson participants! Daily we are welcoming new faces to our place who come to take a dip in the ever-cool Gaylord Pool. Lots of new aqua exercise participants this year! Yes, the view from our pool is that we are busy and loving it. Squeezing the most out of our swan song season in the sun! It is truly so much fun! Suit up and join us! We are open daily and waiting just for you!

Swimming Lessons
Our third session of lessons has now gotten underway! It gets busier as the day progresses. More and more parents want to get their children into lessons after their work day is over, in part so that they can come, enjoy our place in the sun and watch their children take lessons but you know what? We have no more lesson openings to offer! We are filled up for the summer of 2010! Thanks for your overwhelming response to our Sertoma-backed Ellis swimming lesson program. Your desire to participate is our motivation to do the best that we can to help your children learn to swim!

EGG-stra Special Weekend
Fast approaching is EGG-stravaganza Days 2010 — a whole weekend during which we can gather with our families and our friends, relax and just celebrate us! Plan now to take in one of the pool’s events.

First off, is the egg hunt. Those elusive 12 eggs are hidden within the confines of the City of Gaylord. Read the clues, then start your search today! Our cow garden has gotten a lot of attention in the past week as folks have read the first clue but, “HOLY COW, have you not heard? I try to steer you astray! Get in the MOOO-d for some serious searching!”

On Thursday night, August 12th, we will kick-off our celebration with our annual Poolside Show. Please plan to come out and support all our swimmers who are in this year’s show! The theme “From HERE to THERE — HOW!? Just watch — WOW!”

On Friday morning, there is the egg breakfast uptown. Get your button to wear now to promote our celebration. This breakfast is free if you have a button.

On Friday afternoon from 4 to 6 p.m. will be the Panda Pals Pool Party at our place, for all those children who are members of this banking club.

Bright and early on Saturday morning, August 14th, we invite you to gather at the pool and briskly walk our 5K route with us! We will go out to Lakeside Acres and back in. Join us and get your daily dose of exercise in before Gaylord’s big day of fun begins!

Watch for all of us in the parade that starts right after noon. The whole pool staff has been invited to ride on a wagon pulled by Howard Schneider and his beautiful horses! Watch for us! The Gaylord Pool Mermaid will be making a appearance too, as Phyllis Severin has agreed to allow her to ride in style in the back of her convertible.
