On behalf of our board of directors, we want to say “Thank You!!” to our members, our staff and our community. We weren’t sure that this season would happen and if we opened if we would be able to stay open. We made the decision to try and open and do our best to keep everyone, both members and employees safe and working together and everyone doing their part….we did it!! Our members joined, our concession stand opened and the employees came to work and we made it. Our season looked a little different but it was still awesome and the best thing we heard from everyone was that they could feel “normal” at the pool. We are honored that you choose to be a part of the AVRCC community and we are looking forward to an even more normal season next year and we hope that it brings swim team and moonlight swims and 4th of July celebrations and all of our annual traditions back again! Please post your pool pictures in the comments if you would like to! See you soon!
