Square Dancing Wednesday Night at WV Pool

We hope that you can join us Wednesday, July 22, 6-8 PM for an evening of Square Dancing at Woodbridge Valley Pool. This event will be fun for your whole family! Whether you are dancing in the water or up on the pool deck, you are going to have FUN! No prior experience is required. Comfortable shoes in or out of the water, recommended.

Note: Jim danced in the pool Friday at the Star Spangled Banner Square Dance Festival in Timonium. He wore water tolerant sandles for the event, which proved adequate, but water shoes would have worked better. Occasionally, the velcro straps on the sandles would loosen while moving through the water.

It is time for a gentle reminder and explanation of an important pool rule:


This includes Crock Pots, Pyrex pans, etc. that might be used to prepare your favorite dishes to be shared at the potluck. Please transfer your culinary creation to a pool-safe container before transporting it to the pool.

Here’s why: If a glass object breaks in or near the edge of the pool, we will be required to drain the pool in order to dry-vacuum up the broken glass to prevent injuries to swimmers. You do NOT want to be that person who trips while carrying your glass container of your favorite food to the potluck, which forces the closure of the pool for a week of clean-up!

Thank you for your kind cooperation.
