Good afternoon! Today I went to the groundbreaking for the new Aquatic Center / YMCA in my hometown! This is a day that many thought would never arrive. The plans have been drawn, edited, scrapped, and revised so many times, but today… today was the groundbreaking. This facility will greatly increase the quality of life in our area and will allow access to 25 Meter and 50 Meter Pools for the community, year-round. There is also an outdoor water-park which will definitely be seeing plenty of me upon completion!
When I lived in Atlanta, there was an aquatic center similar to this about 1 mile from my office and it was always PACKED, so when I moved back and was told that Kingsport was investigating building one as well, I was, needless to say, quite excited. Not only will this be great for the quality of life of area residents, with the top-of-the-line Natatorium, Kingsport will have the ability to host a variety of events that will help bring taxpayer dollars into the area, how much more of a win-win situation can there be? A facility that helps people of all ages stay in shape and helps the community as a whole… Now, that to me is a winning combination.

Also, speaking of a winning combination, I am so happy to see that so many people are reading my blog, thank you! To have so many sign up to receive my posts via e-mail means a lot to me since I know we all get so much junk mail, that at times getting to the other e-mails sometimes falls by the wayside, so thank you for taking time out of your day to read my thoughts. I look forward to your feedback and I hope to hear from you. Best wishes!
Until we meet again,
