THE ST. ALBANS SHARK ATTACK

CLUB NEWS

It's hard to believe that we are half way through the summer. Last week featured our Wimbledon Breakfast Tennis Social, St. Albans night at the Philadelphia Freedoms, raft night, swim and dive meets, and more.

Our second Tween Splash Party has been postponed to August 1st due to the rain today. Members and guests are welcome. A $10 fee provides you admission, dinner, and a dessert surprise.

Also coming up this week and next, are the swimming championships, the Swim and Dive Banquet, Sunday Sundaes, Book Club, Christmas In July movie night and the Century Tennis Tournament. Boot Camp continues throughout the summer! We hope to see lots of members at these events and at the pool and tennis courts.

As we all know, the recent torrential rains have caused difficulties for our facilities. The Board continues to work toward solutions to ensure the long-term safety of our club.
