Waldwick April 15, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 5 Borough to paint lap-placement lines at pool Swimmers at the Waldwick Pool will have it easier this summer. The Waldwick Council last week agreed to paint lap-placement lines at the pool at the request of the local swim club team. Council members received tens of letters from residents requesting the lines, which make it easier to stay in the appropriate lane and signal the approach of the end wall. “It’s a safety issue as well as a convenience for the swimmers,” commented Councilman Charles Farricker, the recreation liaison. The swim club had requested the lines last year after the facility was refurbished, but the pool had already been filled for the season. A section of the pool is used by the club for practices and meets after 6 p.m. The time restriction was imposed because the council felt that residents should have some time after work to use the pool without the team there, according to Farricker. The blue lines will be painted by Department of Public Works employees at a minimal cost to the borough, Farricker said. The facility opens for the season beginning on Saturday, May 23 for weekends only. Weekend hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Daily hours, from noon until 8 p.m., will begin on the first Monday after the closing of schools – June 22. Pool badges must be purchased by May 23 or a late fee of $10 will be charged in addition to the badge cost for each badge holder. Residents are encouraged to renew their badges by taking advantage of the downloadable pool registration form at the borough’s website www.waldwicknj.org The abstract, flowing logo that is the “face” of the Waldwick Chamber of Commerce’s Second Annual 5K Run/1 Mile Walk was designed by artist Liz Barbagallo of Lizart Studios, and Run organizers are delighted with the results. “Liz did an incredible job with the design of the logo. I felt she truly listened to what Stan (Kowalski, the Run chairman) had to say and did her best to interpret what he was looking for,” commented Chamber President Christine Figliuolo. “I think we have a shirt that people will want to wear even long after the event is over.” Kowalski said that from the start he didn’t want to go with clip art but rather with a logo that was unique so as to capture the identity of the town. And he wanted it simple. He said he and Barbagallo met a few times and shared ideas over a cup of coffee as the design (continued on page 14) Abstract logo captures 5K’s spirit The 2009 Waldwick 5K Run logo.
