Dear City Council, Ms. Brandell:

My family moved to Laurel Street,  Menlo Park in 1947, when I was six years young.  I spent many summers swimming in the old Burgess pool during my pre-teen  years.  I stopped swimming completely after my freshman year at M-A.

In recent years I heard many compliments about Menlo Swim and decided, at age 67, to start lap swimming at Burgess pool, after a 57 year absence.  What fun!! 

Six months later I joined Menlo Masters.  With the encouragement of our swim coach, Tim Sheeper, I started competing in Masters Swim Meets.  Talk about excitement.  Wow! I even scored a few ribbons!!

Swimming is wonderful for seniors!!  So is Tim Sheeper and his entire staff!!   I felt a warm welcome when I started and I continue to have the same feeling of being part of something very positive today, more than two years later.

Thank you,

Rich Cottrell
