Watch Thom Mandel’s Swing!


Thom Mandel, co-chair of Make a Splash! Committee and the President of the Board for the JCC swung a hammer at the pool construction launch yesterday and revealed some of the new features that are in the works for the new aquatics facility.


Kathy Salem, co-chair of Make a Splash! Committee, unveiled the tile wall art made by Bonnie Cohen that will honor the donors of the pool – starting at the $100 giving level. “We did this because who wants to see a boring brick wall. But also so that people can participate. We want everybody’s name there," says Kathy. 


Lila Marks, the honorary chair of the Make a Splash Committee shared (with her usual flair) the good and the bad from her experiences using the indoor pool 4 days a week for 26 years.


Bonnie Cohen, the renowned artist who specializes in donor recognition projects, shared her inspiration for the tile-wall that will be decorating our new aquatics facility. She remembered fondly how 20 years ago the same team, which she referred to as "my dream team" - Kathy Salem, Janice Woll, and herself led the effort on the colorful walls at the entrance of the JCC.
