Super Kids Pool Party

The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Recreation Department held its Super Kids Pool Party at the Lehi Aquatic Center on August 14. The afternoon weather was hot and humid, making it a perfect time to have a pool party at Lehi Pool. Recreation staff members served hamburgers and hot dogs to the Super Kids families, and that was followed by pool play for the special-needs children in the spray area and in the lap pool with their parents.

The pool party was originally scheduled for July 29, but because of a rainy day it was moved to August. A couple of families showed up to the event, and their children received incentives for attending the party.

Recreation hosts an event for the Super Kids families once a month, either at the Recreation Department or elsewhere in the Community. For more information on Community events, contact the SRPMIC Recreation Department at (480) 362-5765.
