Dear Ridley Township Swim Club Members,
First of all, I hope you and your families are safe! These are difficult and frustrating times for everyone, we ask for your patience as we deal with this Pandemic together.
I know everyone is wondering when and if the Swim Club will open this summer – we have been following the data provided and the guidelines of the CDC. Unfortunately, Delaware County is still in the “red” zone so Memorial Day Weekend does not look optimistic. Currently I have taken part in several “Zoom” meetings with the Swim Club leaders from Ridley Park, Aquatic and Nassau along with members of the PA House of Representatives and Bob Willert, Ridley Township Board of Commissioners President. Our concerns have been expressed to the State and County officials – we are patiently waiting for some answers and directions from them. We are currently reaching out to the other 25 pools in Delaware County to join together so our voices can be heard – strength in numbers!! Last night we agreed to send a petition to our membership – this will give our PA House Representatives something tangible to present. Here is the link:
We would appreciate your help in signing it and sharing it with others.
As we move to another week of quarantine, I hope and pray that we are soon able to come together and enjoy a nice relaxing summer at our favorite place - The Ridley Township Swim Club!! We will continue to update our website and Facebook with information regarding opening day.
Take care and stay safe!
Jeanne Willert Bellwoar
