WEST ORANGE, NJ - The West Orange Recreation Department will hold a special Registration Night at the Ginny Duenkel Pool on Wednesday, May 15 from 4:30-7:00 pm. (Rain date will be May 16).
This is the last chance for residents to purchase a pool membership at the discounted Early Bird rate. Parents will also be able to sign their children up for for Swim Lessons as well as the WO Wave Swim Team. In addition, Registration forms will be available for a wide variety of summer sports camps and programs. For more information, go to “Summer 2013” section of the Rec website – www.westorange.org.
The pool is being readied for use as the Department of Public Works and outside contractors clean and repaint the facilities. Landscaping and a few necessary minor repairs are also being completed. Our recently upgraded filtration system promises to keep our pool water clean and safe for all the swimmers. The planned upgrade to the Kiddie Pool will not be installed until after the summer season, as delays in planning and implementation prevented the work from being completed in time for the opening of the pool.
Mark your calendars now for the ever popular Fishing Derby on Saturday, June 1 at the 20th Annual Fishing Derby at Crystal Lake beginning at 9:00 am. Bring your own fishing gear and bait will be for sale. Each child will receive a memento of the occasion.
