Digital Badge for Mindfulness

Mindfulness Badge, 5 minutes

What are you doing in August 2015? Let’s launch an All-City Sports Camp.

What happens after Summer Dreamers ends?

It is great that the policies have changed in City Hall with Mayor Peduto so as to give all the kids in the city gratis pool tags so that they can go to the Citiparks swim pools this summer. Free swimming for those ages 15 and younger happens in 2015. The pools are about to open and the kids can benefit. Go to a Citiparks Recreation Center and sign up now. The pools open in mid June.

Labor Day is Monday, September 7, 2015. Most of the summer camp activities, including Summer Dreamers, ends at the end of July or in early August. The last day of PPS Summer Dreamers is Wednesday, August 5, 2015.

We should get everyone interested in a summer-ending experience an All-City Sports Camp this year. We can test the waters and gain some experiences so next year’s efforts can be at various sites and larger.


Invite: Water Polo in Citiparks Pools

Join the fun and play water polo in the evenings. Rookies expected.

Sue Murray Swim Pool, Lower Northside, 6 to 7:30 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Begins on Monday, June 15.

Sadly, the start date for Ammon Swim Pool, Bedford Avenue and Memory Lane, Hill District, is pending. That pool is not going to open in time as they are putting in new filters and pumps. Later, we hope to be playing water polo there at 6 to 7:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Perhaps another site will be provided.
