Christmas in July 2016


On behalf of the Recreation Director, Robert Dobies, Assistant, Mary Nichols, & Head Lifeguard Emily Garrett, we would like to thank all in attendance who came to our pool on Saturday to cool off from the blistering heat on the hottest play yet of this season!  

We would also like to thank the entire staff at the recreation department and the Lifeguard staff for all their help with swim races, dance contests and raffle.

Approximately 375 people were in attendance & fun was had by all young & old - whether you came and sat on the pool deck and listened to the music, or went into the water to cool off.

A Huge thanks to the Garfield Heights Police Department (for 5 bikes donation) Councilmen Michael Dudley -Ward 1 & Joe Lamalfa — Ward 2 (cash donations & baseball gloves) our own pool patrons & residents, Pat Dovak and Mary Ryan & our neighbors at Bat-a-Rama (coupons) for their donations which were used for free raffle and swim races.  Thanks to Councilman Mike Nenadovich (aka Santa) even though on surfboard & in shorts, he braved the weather he is so NOT used too!   It was probably way too hot for him.

Our 5 Lucky Bike Winners are: Melanie Smith, Lucia Visker, Georgiann Woodford, Ronald Smith, and William Miranda.

Our other prize winners are: 1Vlaiya Urban, Maria Hamilton, Sherrie Hahn, Gia Starling, and Madison, all received either baseball gloves, or a bag of summer goodies. All other prizes were handed out for the swim races winners — we had 5 different age groups.
