As generations of Riverside families with young children have done before us, we took the plunge – pun intended – and joined Riverside Swim Club (RSC) this summer. And if our daughter's excitement level on opening day about having a group of her local friends to play and swim with all summer was any indication of what lies ahead, we're confident we've made a good investment.
Assuming we weren't the only family in Riverside looking to learn more about the pool, I reached out to Chris Porter, a long-time board member and current president of Riverside Swim Club.
In our conversation, we discuss how Chris and his family found their way to Riverside and how a neighbor's encouragement lead to Chris volunteering for the RSC board. Chris also shares a brief history of the pool, what's on tap for this upcoming summer, and why young families should consider joining the pool to tap into a built-in community of family fun.
I really enjoyed learning more about RSC and I think you will too. Here's my conversation with our neighbor Chris Porter.
Welcome neighbor and thanks for stopping by. My name is Brian Plain and I'll be your host.
