Few things refresh the body and soul like splashing in water during the hot days of summer. Flora Pool was the setting for the Four Oaks annual pool party on Friday, July 13. This popular event that has traditionally been just for Parents as Teachers (PAT) was expanded this year to include Family Development and Self-Sufficiency (FaDSS) program.
More than 60 families joined in the fun, including some kids who had never been to the community pool. Six of the families were new to the group setting. “The families have had home visits, but this is the first time they have participated in a family event,” said Danielle Peterson. “When they left, they said they will definitely see us again.”
With more than 250 people, pool personnel reported that the party was the largest private event this year. Special thanks to Dubuque Bank & Trust for renting the facility.
