Description

We are pleased to announce the honoring of Coach John Walker by naming the pool natatorium after him. The pool will be known as the Mary Wayte Pool with the John Walker Natatorium. A Natatorium is the area the pool is located, within a larger structure.
 
Back in 2010 the organization that was managing Mary Wayte Pool pulled out and without anyone to manage the facility OCA stepped up and came to the rescue. OCA, led by Coach John and Alice worked with the district and got a contract written in 3 weeks so the doors could stay open on January 1, 2011. OCA has worked hard with the Mercer Island School district and the City of Mercer Island to keep swimming alive on the Island for all swimmers. 
 
This is a very fitting honor for Coach John as his goal was always the greater good of swimming for all. OCA feels honored to remember Coach John in such a significant way. 
 
Please join us as we dedicate the Natatorium with the unveiling of a special plaque honoring Coach John. 
 
12:15-1:15pm Saturday October 19th there will be light refreshments at the event. 
 
In the evening there will be an adult only event to celebrate the dedication and OCA's 10th year.   A separate invitation will be sent with details to the evening event. 
 
ALL SWIMMERS ARE COMMITTED TO THE EVENT PLEASE INDICATE HOW MANY WILL BE ATTENDING FROM YOUR FAMILY. IF UNABLE TO ATTEND PLEASE ADJUST YOUR STATUS ON THE EVENT SITE.
