|Dolphins and Piranhas practice together|
Here’s one example, from Parklawn resident Stephanie Liller about one swim team in the highly competitive Northern Virginia Swim League reaching out to another:
Both the Parklawn Pool, in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County, and the nearby Dowden Terrace Pool, in the City of Alexandria, had been without power since the storm. Members of the Parklawn pool were able to secure a generator, so they invited the Dowden Terrace Dolphins swim team (Division 8) to practice there on the morning of July 4 with the Parklawn Piranhas (Division 15).
The generator was essential to ensure that the Parklawn pool was able to hold its traditional Fourth of July festivities, including a children’s parade and poolside bingo.
