the Spring Break Challenge. She also noted that it was requested to have a conversion for weight lifting
but the board agreed that it may be better to have a different challenge for weights later. The board

would be best if the community center team not win, but can still participate, since the goal of the
program is to get new faces in the building. She also reported that the free swimming lessons were
going well and there were 9 kids taking advantage of the 3-week program. Swim Club currently has 19

talked to Collin about the fitness program and selling products. He advised that it may not be a good
idea to sell products. Summer programs were discussed briefly, including a program for young children
