Swim News from Colin
Hi Basin Harbor Folks! On a day like today I’m sure we all find ourselves with the desire to cool off.  This is where I’m here to help.  I’m Colin Nealon, a sophomore at the University of Vermont and I’ll be offering Swim Lessons for all ages and abilities at the Allen Penfield Beach Pool.  I’ve raced competitively for many years and have taught swimming for three. If you’re learning to float or want a perfect stroke feel more than welcome to contact me at the Pool (Ext. 894) to arrange a lesson.

Tennis News
Collas Tennis Academy  is happy to be at Basin Harbor, offering exciting and fun tennis for all to enjoy!  We’re taking reservations for the Clay and Hard Courts.  Check out the times for Clinics and Round Robins.  Join today’s Round Robin, and compete all week long to win an award at Friday’s Tournament.  Stop by the Tennis Shop. Leoncio would love to see you and introduce you to the crew.
