Sponsors make a splash

They have made a very big splash! Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors of the monthly public swim events we have offered at Skyview High School Pool this past year, over 450 people have experienced the joy of swimming.

These free swim events were made possible by Soldotna Rotary Club, Central Peninsula Hospital, Central Peninsula Health Foundation, Kenaitze Indian Tribe, Sweeney’s Clothing, and several anonymous donors. Their investment in the health of our local people created these swimming opportunities and at the same time helped the Change Club achieve our goals to increase facility use and improve the physical activity of Central Peninsula residents.

The Skyview High School Pool is unique because during our open swim there is space for both lap swimming and unstructured swimming (play). The pool provides fun aquatic toys for children and families to play with. These toys entertain the swimmers for hours!

Also, a big thank you to KPBSD District-wide Pool Supervisor Cindy Aldridge, Skyview High School Pool Manager Luke Baumer, and life guards Jessica Jackson, Trace Braxling, and Joseph Rife. They are outstanding professionals and have created a fun and safe setting for our swimmers to enjoy Skyview High School Pool.

Because of our sponsors and the Skyview High School Pool staff we can say our monthly swim events have gone swimmingly!

With sincere gratitude,

Central Peninsula Change Club Members: Jenny Anderson, Pat Cue, Amber Delago, Tami Marsters, Barb Norbeck, Deb Nyquist, Mary Olson, Sue Olson, Linda Tannehill
