Water aerobics are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings from 7:30 to 8:30am, and an evening class Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00pm. Lap swimming is available Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00am and Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5:00 to 6:00pm. Gay Christie loves the aerobics class. She says, “You get out of it what you put into it. If you can’t participate to the full extent or pace that’s okay and you still get a benefit.” “Also, you don’t sweat!”
Open swim is from 12:00 -5:00pm daily Monday through Saturday. Pool parties are fun and available by calling 676-3059. Kaley Ragan, who graduated this spring from Rye High School and is one of three pool managers says, “A pool, music, friends, family and a ton of fun!
