Support the Pool & Wellness Center
Lakesiders were asked to imagine what the community could and should be in the years to come. They identified a community swimming pool and enhanced wellness programming as high-priority needs.

Desired features for a swimming pool include heated water, zero depth entry, lap lanes, shaded seating area, small water slide and play features for children.

Lakesiders also voiced a need for additional wellness programming, including strength training, Pilates, Zumba, Silver Sneakers classes, children and youth classes and swimming lessons.

Family Night in the Park: John Flynn
This week's Family Night in the Park concert will feature the music of John Flynn at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 24 at the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo.

As an activist who is known for his powerful music that is often laced with humor, wisdom and compassion, Flynn's life and career came from a sudden realization that he could use music to reach people.

As a young man in high school, Flynn was honored as a scholar athlete and was set to play lacrosse for the Navy thanks to the two congressional recommendations to the Naval Academy that he was awarded. However, when he found out that joining the Navy meant leaving his guitar behind, he realized how much music actually meant to him and was forced to admit an entirely new set of dreams out loud.
