Dear Members, 

We would like to inform you that the Athletic Center swimming pool will be temporarily closed starting next Tuesday, March 14 and will reopen on Wednesday, March 29.   The closure is due to the need to make some urgent repairs to a wall in the area.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we assure you that the work is necessary for the safety and well-being of everyone who uses the facilities.  

In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to make use of the Athletic Center facilities.    

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you back to the swimming pool soon.
