Float Nights are Back!

Float Nights are Back!

The warm summer sun set the perfect stage for the 400 guests ranging in age and background that attended. Some of our APJCC members, some of our Camp Shalom families who had not been to campus, and a large percentage of faces new to APJCC who got to experience our pool and community for the first time.

Years ago, I had a woman come up to me with tears in her eyes expressing her gratitude for hosting an event where the community was welcomed. She explained that she was a foster parent and vacations were out of the question during the summer due to finances being tight. They put our Float Nights on their calendar and the kids looked forward to coming to the JCC for their “mini vacation.” She thanked me again as she walked away to join her family. I will never forget that interaction and the impact it had on my work here. Float Nights are more than a pool party and BBQ. 

If you didn’t make this one, you can join us for the next on Wednesday, July 24, 2024 from 4:00 – 8:00pm.
