Sign ups for our “Swimmin’ for Eaman” Swim-a-thon are underway and board members are working hard to get the updated estimates we need to begin the process of resurfacing our pool. Please note that we have extended the deadline for sign-ups in hopes that more people will sign up to participate. Please remember that you do not need to be a member at EPP to compete in the Swim-A-Thon!
We have 6 lane options for various age groups and the top swimmer in each lane will receive prizes. Prizes include gifts and gift cards from Amazon, Chick-fil-A, The Pedal Factory, Go Burrito and Scentsy. What could better that playing in the pool and earning prizes for a good cause?
As a community owned AND operated swim club, Eaman Park Pool relies on it’s members to contribute to the care of the pool. We have been very fortunate to have so many proactive members willing to donate their time and talent to our pool. So, what does volunteering at Eaman look like? For long time member Elizabeth Edwards it means lending her green thumb and helping to make our pool beautiful and inviting.
If you have ever met Liz, you know that she is the kind of generous and loving spirit that immediately helps you feel at ease. Her love, her joy and appreciation of life is truly contagious. In addition to playing in the pool with her family, Liz has an amazing green thumb that we are all so envious of!
Years back when Liz noticed our empty planters and flower beds, she quickly sprung into action. Liz went home, looked around her own yard and got busy determining which plants would survive here at the pool. She began digging up and separating plants and the next thing we knew, our pool was filled with beautiful greenery. Since then, Liz has taken it upon herself, year after year, to tend to our plants and fill our planters. For her, it doesn’t even count as volunteer work, but for us, she is truly a treasure.
In fact, when Liz was nominated for our very first volunteer spotlight, we immediately had many people come forward to tell us about their love for Liz. Renowned Singer/Songwriter Ashley Farmer told us, ““Liz Edwards is one of the most genuine, loving, and creative women in our community. She’s a plethora of unique and inspiring ideas for making any space beautiful, and her work goes beyond what is necessary to what is inventive as well as sustainable. She has a style all her own, one that fosters comfortability and encouragement in everyone around her. You’ll rarely hear her turn down an opportunity to give back to her fellow citizens, and if there’s a job to be done, she’s usually the first to volunteer. What a gift she is to us all!”
And honestly, we could not agree more! If you see Liz at our pool, please say hello and let her know how much we all appreciate her efforts.
If you would like nominate someone for our next Volunteer Spotlight OR if you would like information on how you can lend a hand here at our pool, please contact us on our Facebook page or reach out to our pool presidents, Tabitha and Michael Myers. The Myers’ can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our annual End of School Party will be next Friday, June 7th from 5pm-7pm. We will be grilling hotdogs for this event and we will have ice cream sundaes for the kids. There is a cost of $5 per child for this party to help the pool offset cost.
Feel free to bring your friends! NONmembers are more than welcome.
We still need volunteers to help with this. If we could have 2-3 more people to help with serving hotdogs and ice cream that would be great!
Please contact us if you are willing to help out. The kids look forward to this every year on the last day of school.

TEEN NIGHTS are BACK at EPP! On Friday, June 29th we will be hosting a Teen Night for ages 11+. This means that any members ages 11 and older can come make a splash with us and no chaperone is required. We will be grilling hot dogs again and offering the “EPP combo special” 2 hotdogs, bag of chips & drink for $4 or 1 hotdog, bag of chips & drink for $3.
And guess what else!? Check out this message from our Pool President:
Jon Palmer brought his water balloon launcher at the last TEEN night and it was a HUGE hit! So guess what?!? Jon is putting together some AWESOME games that your TEEN will not want to miss out on. What we would like them to do is to form groups of 3 people in each group & to create a name for their team. They can then sign their “TEAM” up on the white board located near the woman’s bathroom at the pool. If they think the water balloon launcher was cool….wait until they see what Jon has planned this time. It involves Potatoes, PCV pipe and a Lowe’s visit. We promise it is SAFE:)
As always, be sure and follow us on Facebook @eamanparkpool to keep up with all our events! Happy Swimming!
