The Summer Pool Series returns...

LGBTQ & Ally Community Pool Party - CANCELED

Presented by Stuart Williams, D.D.S. 

PLEASE READ about the Pool Party on June 3rd...

Sadly, due to a pool leak which was out of our control, the pool party for June 3rd has been canceled. The staff discovered the leak on Saturday midmorning. It apparently has leaked into the hotel, too. The pool must be drained, repaired and then refilled. This will take a few days due to the size of it.

I was devastated when I heard the news and still am. I tried two other locations to move the event. One said that they could not get ready for it with less than a day's notice. The other location has a max of 30 folks in their pool. LOL

The Sheraton Hotel management and staff are devastated. They love our group and love hosting us. They offered the rooftop but it's going to be 91 degrees and I turned it down. It would be like a frying pan up there. I asked about still hanging out around the pool but not getting in. They fear the construction repair is going to be too elaborate.

As of now the other dates are still set. I will be managing their progress this week to make sure that they make their projected deadlines.

Again, I am so sorry but all of this is out of our control. March your calendars for June 17th. It's going to be a fabulous event. With this being the 17th year for Takeover Friday, the pool parties have become not only the crowd favorites but for me, too.

See you on the 17th!
