HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Everyone into the pool!
The midday sun was bright and temperatures were in the mid-80's when Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club held its annual Flag Raising Ceremony and First Jump on Sunday afternoon.
"I want to congratulate you all for the work to open this pool to bring back some kind of normalcy," said Mayor Jack DeLorenzo, who was in attendance along with Councilman Ron Kistner. "To have a place to be and to be able to come and participate in something, I think it's very important for us. You know you have our support."
Members of Hasbrouck Heights Boy Scout Troop 17 opened the ceremony. Jeffrey Ober raised the American flag while Deklan Birth led those gathered in the Pledge of Allegiance.
HHSC Board president Mike Davis addressed the crowd.
"Thank you to all the guards, board members, members of the community that helped us get ready," he said. "It was a rocky road from March on. But we knew it was important to the community to try to get this open."
"We're here, we made it, so enjoy the summer," said Davis.
The Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club traditionally opens on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Governor Phil Murphy announced the guidance for re-opening community pools and swim club on June 9. HHSC officially opened its doors for the 2020 season on Monday, June 22.
