To the editor:
The pool staff at Pine Island Pool would like to thank everyone that came out Friday night. It was our first family fun night of the summer and despite the rainy week, the turnout was awesome. Please remember this event is for the whole family, not just children. A huge "thank you" to the Pine Island Kiwanis for providing the food and drinks for the evening. Of course all their wonderful volunteers and cooks for helping out. Hotd ogs with all the trimmings and watermelon were gobbled up all night while swimming away to the music. While admission is not included in this weekly event, Mr. John Cammick paid for all the children to come in free. As one child said to me, "Wow, this is the way to have a party," and jumped in the pool smiling. Thanks for making this possible for all the children on Pine Island.
Another "huge" thanks to the Bobby Holloway group for buying a new gas grill for the pool. Not only can we cook for all the events at the pool, the grill can be used by any patron at the pool. Everyone, please remember, what a great group these people are for this community. I can see "Little Bobby" in mind my now jumping off the dive board.
Remember to mark your calendar this Friday night to be at the pool for the next swim and cook-out. The friends of Pine Island Pool will be providing the free food this event. Thanks again Pine Island and have a wonderful week.
