Club News - 5/2021
Dear WHSC Members,
Welcome to the new 2021 season, though we never closed. Please see the updates below.
As most of you already know, our beloved Otter, Gage Leonard, was rushed to the ICU last month on this date. He has since passed away and donated his organs to many fortunate people. Gage was the youngest of 5 Otters in the Leonard family. He was a great butterflier and also broke several records. We will forever remember his big smile around the pool. There is a community service for Gage at Las Lomas tonight from 7:30 to 8:30pm taking place at the basketball area.

As a recreation club, I feel responsible to encourage our youth and families in our club and neighborhood to engage in healthy fun activities that can continue to create community. We welcome volunteers to organize social events such as outdoor social distanced movie nights. Our club and team have a lot of resources and equipment to host such events. In the mean time, we have a close relationship with Contra Costa Crisis Center and St. John Vianney Church Youth Group where there are summer opportunities to hang out and be involved with other youth. For any questions, you could email the club and ask for Marlene Lee.
With our county and state starting to open up, the pool is now open not just for lap swimming. There will also be no signup. We still ask if you are not from the same household, limit to 4 swimmers per lane and must maintain social distancing at all time. There can only be one household per lane. Please do NOT lean on our new lane ropes, they cost the club thousands of dollars to replace. When you are not in the pool, please wear a mask at all time even if you are vaccinated. You may remove your masks if there is no one outside of your household within 10 feet radius from you.
As always, safety first. Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you at the club (with masks on, :-) )
