Well folks, we are nearly into July. The weather is warm, the water is cool and clear, and we have already begun making wonderful memories at Eaman Park Pool. We have a ton of exciting updates to share with you as we move further into Summer.
On Sunday, June 28th we celebrated our first Savory Sunday! 2020 Pool President Daphne Safrit, together with several volunteer Board Members were able to safely cook and sell more than 40 Burgers and Hot Dogs with all the fixins’. Savory Sundays are a fun way to raise money towards pool updates and improvements while also supporting our families. Please plan to swing by on Sunday afternoons to enjoy dinner by the pool. As always, volunteers are welcomed. Please follow this link to sign up:
More Foodie Fun!
Be sure to swing by in July for our National Sundae Day and National Lollipop Day Fun. On Saturday, July 11th we will be selling icecream sundaes in the Snack Shack for ONLY $2. Then, just for fun, we will be handing out a free lollipop to every child who visits on Sunday, July 19th!
The Swim-A-Thon is BACK!!!
Operating a community pool requires the effort of all of our stockholders. Last season, our swimmers managed to raise over $3,000 to be used towards beautifying and updating our pool. These swimmers exceeded all of our expectations and were awarded some awesome prizes including gift cards from Chick-fil-A, Go Burrito, and Amazon! This year we are so excited for round 2. Sign-ups are NOW OPEN for participants and volunteers. This year’s Swim-A-Thon will take place on Saturday, July 18th at 9am. Participants in this event seek out sponsors to donate a flat amount -OR- a per lap amount. Participants are then given 1 hour to swim as many laps as they can. This is NOT a race and swimmers are encouraged to do their best and have fun doing it.
To participate, or to volunteer please visit this link or stop by the Snack Shack: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c044eabac22a5ff2-swimmin1
In addition, we are asking all of our members to help as we seek out prizes for our swimmers. Swim-a-thon participants range in ages from 5 years-19 years. Ideas include gift cards, pool toys, water bottles, pool towels, etc. Please contact us as soon as possible if you are able to secure a prize donation. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Cooper Sever Honors Uncle with 24-hour Swim to Benefit Shepherd Center
Our newest lifeguard, Cooper Sever is an avid swimmer. This year on July 21st and 22nd, Cooper will be swimming for 24 hours in an effort to raise money for the Shepherd Center. The Shepherd Center is a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neuromuscular conditions. Cooper will be swimming in honor of his Uncle who suffered a traumatic injury and received life altering treatment from this center. All funds raised will be divided into grants to support patients in need. Cooper will begin his swim at 6pm on July 21st and will go until 6pm on July 22nd. We will be blocking off two lanes of our pool during this time. Please plan to support Cooper in this amazing endeavor!

These members help to plan fundraisers, volunteer at our events, assist with maintenance and pool upkeep, and plan for the future. Please consider joining the EPP Board and help us to ensure a fun, safe and long lasting pool club for years to come! To join the board, send us an email at EamanParkPool2012@gmail.com.
