Harry Jerome Kept Open
On November 25, shortly after the “Keep Harry Jerome Open” team had run out of ideas on how to unfreeze the Harry Jerome closure intentions, a major thaw occurred. Thanks to everyone who signed the petition, wrote letters, talked to their politicians and never accepted defeat, we were all able to declare VICTORY! Here is the link to the North Shore News Article announcement. Thank you for your support of this effort.
As much as I am happy that Harry Jerome is staying open while the new Harry Jerome Rec Centre is built, I have to empathize with the NVRC management and staff who have spent the last 10 months working on the closure plans.
Staff members have found new jobs or been re-assigned. Things will be different in January.
I Wish Mom Was an Octopus
Lyza, one of our Ron Andrews swimmers, has just published a kids book for Kindergarten to Grade 2 kids. You can buy it on Amazon or get a copy from Lyza directly after December 9.
Because Harry Jerome is remaining open, Harry Jerome Masters 6:00 AM and Swim Fit 8:00 AM workouts will continue at Harry Jerome in the New Year. Friday morning 4:45 AM workouts will move Ron Andrews.

North Shore Masters Swim Caps
High quality, durable North Shore Masters silicon swim caps are still available for $10 each. Let me know if you are interested. Quite a few find homes over the Holiday Season. We have lots more. It’s nice to see them across the North Shore at our pools.
