What's going on at Goss Park this week?

Greetings, all!

Just wanted to send a quick email to let you know what's going on here now that things have settled a bit and I have time to write.

First of all....Mother Nature is being crabby again...however next week looks hot and sunny so hope to see you all at the waterfront keeping our toes cooled off.

We have had a big change in our staff this year....our returning guards are Matt Allenberg, Cody Tetreault and Owen McGettigan. Our new guard this season is Chris Yurcak. Please say "Hi!" to him!! He's excited to be part of our summer family. I am currently still looking for certified lifeguards so if you know anyone looking for a great, summer job...please send them my way! Thank you in advance. Our WSI instructors for the season are me, Ally Schwab, Susannah and Annabelle Mezynski and our new addition is Maddy Smith. I'm excited for our crew here!

We have had some big things happen this season....we did a regrade of the beach and added some really nice sand. The driveway was graded and leveled out and a bunch of trees were taken down. More drainage was put out by the girl's bathroom as well. All of these things are to help keep beach erosion from happening.

So next will start our craziness! Session 1 of swim lessons begins (still spots available). Our arts and crafts will begin on Tuesday and Storytime with Chance begins on Wednesday. All of these things along with Grill/Floatie days on Wednesdays and Pizza Days on Friday.

Saturday lessons begin this Saturday, the 22nd. Spots available if interested.

We will start our movie nights in July too! We are thinking of three of them...child's movie, teen movie and a Mom's movie. All info to come here real soon!

Think that's it for this week!

Please feel to chat with me in the cabin if needed...I'm usually there most of the days till 5-6pm.

Have a great weekend!

Who's looking for a summer job?

Looking for a great summer job? One that you can be outside all day??

Goss Park is looking for American Red Cross Certified Lifeguards (or willing to take classes at Hampshire Hills or Crotched Mountain).

Flexible hours, weekends a must, and 16 years of age.

Email Kristin Schwab at kschwabby031466@yahoo.com for an application.

Opening day is Monday June 10th!

Greetings to the 2019 Season!

Oh how I have missed you all!  But ya know what?  The sun is shining, the ice has melted off the pond and the temps are warming up!  This means I will be getting into "Park Mode" shortly and getting us all together again for a fabulous summer!!

 

We have a lot of things to do to get the park ready....driveway will be graded and new gravel put down, a few trees need to come down in the grove, gutters cleaned/replaced, the beach needs to be graded and cleaned up, the cabin aired out  and boy do we need sand!!  So if anyone wants to lend a hand starting in May, the help would be greatly appreciated!  

 

I have sent along the registration form for you all to fill out and return to us.  Discount for families is till June 9th!  Mailing it back to our PO Box or dropping off to Mr. Putnam is the best way to get it to me.  Thank you!  You'll notice on the form that we are offering Saturday swim lessons this summer.  Ally and I are going to give it a try and see what kind of response we get.  We understand that not everyone can have the time off during the week to have you kids attend our GREAT swim program so we'll see if this flies this summer!  

 

We have revamped our website this year, so it is up to date versus vintage like it was.  Any feedback once it's up and running is greatly appreciated!

 

Think that's it for now!  Can't wait to be back together again and soaking up the warm sun and  seeing your smiling faces!
