Come On In; The Water's Fine March 15, 2019

As temperatures rise, so does the excitement for the season's opening of the Landisville Pool, 50 Elmwood Ave., Landisville.

"We love the pool because it's a wonderful place to be," enthused co-manager Nancy Neff. "It's a fun, happy, healthy environment."

The pool will open for the summer on Saturday, May 25, and it will close on Labor Day. While school is in session, the pool will be open on weekdays from 4 to 8:30 p.m. and from noon to 8:30 p.m. on weekends. An open house will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 1.

"We want the pool to be pristine, and it takes until then to make it happen," explained co-manager Kelley Tonkay.

The board members and employees of the Landisville Pool Association will be working up until opening day to have the facility ready for members and their guests. During the open house, folks may tour the facility, meet the staff members and board of directors, and purchase memberships. The pool will not be open for swimming during the event.

"(Open house guests) can purchase their memberships and begin swimming at noon," suggested board member Kim Reinfried.

Admission to the pool is restricted to members, and folks may visit only if they accompany someone who has purchased a membership. Currently, last year's members are able to renew their memberships and other families and individuals may join the waitlist. Beginning on Monday, April 1, those on the waitlist will be offered the chance to buy memberships. Those who do so by Monday, April 15, will pay a discounted rate. Memberships will be sold until capacity is reached, which has been set at 525 family memberships.

"(The waitlist) is filling up fast," observed vice president Mark Fitzgerald.

There are many things to like about the Landisville Pool, the board members said. The swimming pool is supplemented by a toddler-friendly feature pool. A lifeguard trainer is on staff to help ensure everyone's safety. The pavilions may be rented by members for special occasions. Lounge chairs are provided, and a snack bar is on-site. The pool association is financially stable, and as a private club, there is no cost to local taxpayers.

Additionally, ice cream is served on "Sundae Mondays," and burger night is held on Wednesdays, with board members taking turns manning the grill. Rafts may be used in the pool at set times on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Moonlight swims take place on the second Friday of every month. To celebrate Independence Day, special games are held on the lawn and in the water, and burgers, hot dogs, and watermelon are available. Santa and Mrs. Claus visit during Christmas in July, which also features cookie decorating and Christmas music. A campfire night is held in August.

Secretary Amy Roth listed basketball, volleyball, and ample shade as among her favorite amenities at the pool. Neff related that one particular tree on the grounds has become a popular landmark for seniors, who gather in its shade to relax, chat, and interact with each other and with younger pool members.

"They've had such a positive impact (on the pool community)," Neff said. "It's a very caring, nurturing place. We've had a few older members who cannot come anymore, and they're missed. People still look for them. It's such a nice atmosphere for everyone."

"The pool is not just for families," board member Bob Roth concurred. "It's a great place for old guys like me to sit and read, then nod off."

Nonmembers are welcome to join the Dolphins swim team and to learn to swim. SwimAmerica offers lessons for children age 3 and up at the Landisville Pool.

Fostering Friendships In Young Girls March 7, 2019

Renee Rogers has a set of fifth-grade twins, a boy and a girl. As the children grew older, Rogers noticed that the siblings handled friendships in much different manners.

"It might be their personalities, but I have found that my son is more comfortable moving in and out of friendships and adjusting when friendships don't go well. What I've found with my daughter is she has a more emotional reaction when things don't go well in friendships," Rogers related. "When I talked with (other mothers), they said their daughters had difficulty adjusting too."

To remedy that difficulty, Rogers created a group called "Solanco GIRL friends," which is hosted monthly by the Southern End Community Association (SECA) for fourth- and fifth-grade girls. "The goal is to give girls an opportunity to build healthy friendships while having fun in preparation for going to middle school," Rogers said. Quarryville Elementary School guidance counselor Mary Humphries provided resources and ideas of things to teach and do with the girls.

Solanco GIRL friends meets on the third Thursday of the month from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the SECA building, 299 Park Ave., Quarryville. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, March 21. There is no cost to attend.

At the inaugural meeting of the group on Feb. 21, five girls were present. To break the ice, the girls interviewed each other and then used stickers and markers to decorate nametags for their interviewees. They also decorated cupcakes, with supplies donated by local supermarkets. Rogers said she briefly explained to the girls that just as the cupcakes and icing are the same under the decorations, so are people similar, and it is important to see everyone's value, no matter the external differences.

Rogers noted that she is seeing results already after that first meeting. Of the five girls at the first meeting, four already knew each other. Now that they have been introduced to the fifth girl, they are waving at her when they pass in the hallways. It is the start of a personal connection.

"We hope they will build a support network as they transition into sixth grade," Rogers said, noting that the move to middle school can be challenging.

When planning future meetings, Rogers has quite a lot of ideas, many of which were provided by the girls at the Feb. 21 meeting. They expressed a desire to do science experiments and also suggested that picnics, pool and dance parties, and crafts would be fun things to do together. Rogers is also considering games, a spa theme, and outside activities. "I want to take advantage of SECA's facilities," Rogers remarked. "SECA has been great (to work with)."

None of the meetings will be too elaborate. "I found with the cupcake thing, it doesn't need to be overly complicated," Rogers related. "It's (about) providing girls the opportunity to have fun and a forum to connect. They figured the rest out. It's (about) the conversations and the shared experiences."

Girls in fourth and fifth grades are welcome to join the Solanco GIRL friends. Although it is free to attend, girls are asked to register with SECA by emailing

Donations to support the program will be appreciated. As the program grows, adults with child protective clearances will be welcome to volunteer. For more information, readers may email SECA or find the "SolancoGirl Friends" page on Facebook.
