On a personal note, I had been looking for ways to encourage my 13 year-old son to be more active. Unlike his father, my son doesn’t like running much, and he isn’t big enough or talented enough to play on the basketball and soccer teams. But he agreed to go to the pool every day with me this summer, and just about every day we have been swimming laps. From this he has learned the joy of daily exercise and has acquired the willpower to get up early on summer mornings to work out. He has enjoyed this so much that he is already making plans to swim with me again next summer in our special pool. Best of all, our daily swimming has been another way for a father to bond with his son. We’ve had a summer we’ll never forget.
We owe that to you and your love for your hometown. Thank you, on behalf of the community I represent. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
