To the editor:
A great big
thank you to Lincoln Park District Aquatic Center Manager Jennifer
Prather, Park District Director Becky Strait, those who maintained
perfect pool water all season, others who worked the support
stations including entry and the food shack, and of course to a
great bunch of lifeguards.
It was a wonderful season!
The daily lap swimming signup/scheduler prevented overcrowding and
allowed individuals the reliable opportunity to get a good fitness
workout. Water Aerobics continues to be of greater interest as
another means of enjoying the water and fitness. Families and youth
were able to enjoy the pool and fun water slide, and the youngest
frolicked in the wading pool with fun sprays and fountains.

There were many positive comments on this wonderful
facility and those who worked it this year, especially for Prather's
efforts to serve the public and welcome swimmers. This is not an
easy job, but especially in the year 2021 just opening up at the
start of the season from covid and workforce shortages.
At the end of the season a card was passed around thanking Prather
for her management. Everyone present was happy to sign it.
With much appreciation,
The lap and water aerobics swimmers
