Swim Club News

While it had been the intention of all involved to have the pool opened for the July 4th weekend certain events have caused the opening date to be pushed back.  Encouragingly, we have been told that the work on our pool is expected to begin very shortly. 


Why the delay? In short the overall demand for the material needed in commercial pools (ex: commercial grade ladders and handrails, in-ground skimmers and chemicals, etc,) has far outweighed the available supply. The short supply of material has delayed the completion of similar projects upon which the commercial pool contractors are presently working, which in turn has caused the delays in the work needed at the Columbian Swim Club. 


We expect further information from all parties involved within the week. As information is received we will of course share the same with the membership.


We appreciate your patience and ask for you to remember that the work being done is a necessity and will make our pool better for years to come. 


Best Regards,

Michael Harms

Swim Club President

Wedding Anniversary Celebrations


Council 4504 will recognize brothers and their wives who have celebrated, or will be celebrating, their 25th and 50th Wedding Anniversary this year. We will also make special presentations to the brothers and their wives who celebrate incremental five-year anniversaries after 25 years.


Any brother who would like to be recognized should contact Mike Willemse, PGK as soon as is possible so that we may order the correct number of certificates.

Baseball Trip Update


Hello all for those that have already sent in deposit for the Met game thank you.  We have about 15 more seats available.  The date is August 28th, we will need the balance by the end of June. This will give us time to send to Citi Field and then for our contact to send tickets back to us for the game. At the moment the schedule is showing this will be an evening game.

Any question let me know. 908-357-5673 or mikepeter4275@gmail.com


Charitable Raffle


The next charitable raffle drawing will take place on Memorial Day at 6PM.

If you are interested in receiving tickets through the mail, please send me an email at (mikemarisolam@gmail.com) or call me at 908-370-4126.


Tickets are also available approximately one month prior to each drawing.

In an effort to decrease our expenses, please be certain that the Council has your updated address so that your potential winning tickets are not returned to me by the Post Office as undeliverable. Unfortunately, this occurs far too frequently, and not only adds to our expenses, but also decreases the potential prizes available to all who do participate. Please, don’t hesitate to contact me to ensure that we do have your correct mailing address!
