hundreds of members of the

stared and marveled as the
vast acreage has been chang

series of bulldozer cuts into a
clear picture and pattern of
the future buildings and out

These community members
have been at the House to par

various boards and commit

In early June, the Arm

the Foundation and the

Sometime in September, the
JCC will move its offices and
many of its programs into the

Swim Team Undefeated
By Nancy Segal
The JCC Swim Team completed the regular season
undefeated in dual meet competition. This is the first time this
has been accomplished in anyone’s recollection.
We also finished in 5th place in the League Relay Meet and
3rd place in the All-Star League Meet.
Both our 9 & 10 Girls and 13 & 14 Boys Medley and Freestyle
Relays remained undefeated after all meets. The 9 & 10 Girls
Relay members were: Alexis Lerner, Ruthie Abel, Cher Fox, Sarah
Fox, Amy Goldman, Katherine Ray and Ashley Widis. The Boys
Relay members were: David Rosenfeld, David Fox, Scott Crago,
Kevin Tritten and Joe Labovitz.
The following were 1st place finishers at the All-Star Meet:
Erin Collins, 8 & under breast stroke; Lauren Weisman, 8 & U
butterfly; Reid Lerner, 8 & U breast stroke: Alexis Lerner, 9 &
10 backstroke and freestyle; Phillip Rosenfeld, 9 & 10 breast
stroke; Richard Rosenfeld, 11 & 12 backstroke; David Rosenfeld,
13 & 14 breast stroke.
The depth of our 8 & unders should prove our g^eat strength
in the next few years. We even had a large number of 5 and
6-year-olds participating in practices and meets.

Many thanks go to our team Coach Marla Shapiro and Assis
tant Coach Jered Mond for all their hard work this year and in
the past to produce such a fine group of swimmers. Thanks also
to the many parents who gave so much of their time and en
thusiasm to make this season such a success.
The team’s greatest asset this season was the camaraderie,
team spirit and good sportsmanship they all shared. Con
gratulations to the entire team!
All team awards will be given at the ice cream evening, Aug.

two locations where a small en

This is a conscious effort on
the part of the architects and
the Foundation to make the
construction process as accep

site daily on Providence Road.
In order to see the miracle in
process it is necessary to drive
a short distance up Jefferson
Drive and then turn onto the
former Armstrong Drive. The
end of that much used road
goes directly onto the site, but
the visitor is cautioned to turn
on the curving driveway to the
left in order to reach the Arm
strong House and to be able to
park and view the massive
work in safety.
The coming months will see
the final shaping of the entire
site as well as the installation
of roads, parking areas, tennis
courts and playing fields that
are part of this first contract.
These outdoor areas will be
ready for use while the actual
building of the msiin facilities
is being accomplished.
