The Pool Opens with Annual Mass
The 2017 pool season officially got on the way with the annual poolside mass officiated by Fr. Bob Wolfee, Pastor of St. Michael’s Church and Chaplain of Council 4504. Father Wolfee blessed the pool and the premises asking God’s protection to all who will use the pool and the grounds during the season.
Swim Club president, Joe Marateo, thanked Fr. Wolfee for accepting to conduct the service. He also thanked all the members, wives and friends who had attended the mass. Joe also took the opportunity to present a gift to Fr. Wolfee in appreciation of his contribution towards opening day and the rest of the season.
Following the mass, those in attendance were treated to refreshments, while some of those who had registered to join the pool this year, stood in line to get their pool passes.
Great work by Joe and his crew to get the pool open on time considering the many obstacles that they encountered along the way. Thanks especially to Ken Lomar, Paul Marzocca, Joe Harbison, Jim Fein, Ray Prusczkowski and the others who worked untiringly to get us to the point we are at, today. Great job and Thank You, guys.
