Dear MJCC Pool Lovers,
WE DID IT!! Thank you so much for your support.
HELP US REOPEN THE POOLS!!
We’re getting ready for you, and we are doing all that we can to be prepared to reopen our pools in the near future. As you probably know, pools cannot reopen in Oregon until the county in which they are located is granted permission to enter Phase 2 of the Reopen Oregon plan. Even then, there are strict guidelines regarding what activities can and cannot take place (e.g. lap swimming, therapy, swim lessons, swim team, exercise classes, etc.) and under what conditions.
We are writing to ask for your help in preparing to reopen our pools in the safest, most convenient way possible.
When the pools reopen, we are mandated, as always, to require showering before entry. This will be complicated by the fact that we are not allowed to open our locker rooms. Hiring staff to escort swimmers into the locker rooms for the purpose of showering will be both expensive and inconvenient. Moreover, air in the locker rooms is more stagnant than in the pool areas, because of the lack of windows. We want to provide a safer, more convenient environment by installing showers on the pool deck.
For $4,000, we can install two showers on our pool deck, helping to make the reopening of our aquatics program, and your return to the J, simpler, safer, more flexible, and more enjoyable.
P.S. We know so many of you have supported us through our closure and Phase 1 of reopening. We are grateful for your support which has sustained us to this day. For those of you who can do more, please consider a gift today.
