The Chapter kicked off the Independence Day celebration with a night at the ballpark on Sunday, July 3, at BayCare Ballpark in Clearwater. Pool professionals, their families, and friends, enjoyed an all-you-care-to-eat buffet in the Big Shark Cafe, the baseball game, and an outstanding post-game fireworks show. Thank you to everyone who came out to join us for an evening of food, fun and fireworks!   

The Chapter Board met Tuesday, July 5
at Queen’s Pizza in Clearwater. Thank you to Alex Fletcher and AquaWorx for sponsoring the lunch. The next Chapter Board of Directors meeting will be held at noon on Tuesday, August 2 at Bayou Club, 7979 Bayou Club Blvd., Largo. The Chapter’s Board of Directors meetings are usually scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month. All Chapter members are welcome to attend. We are always interested in hearing your ideas for Chapter meetings and programs.

On Monday, June 20, the Chapter presented Radiant Aquatics with a donation for swim lessons. Radiant Aquatics provides swim lessons at the Clearwater High School pool. They offer scholarships for foster children. Through our donation last year and a matching grant, they were able to teach more than 30 children in the foster program how to swim.
