Wednesday, April 24th, I did a presentation to a standing-room only crowd who came to learn more about the plans for the Phillips Aquatics Center. This was a monumental day for me. Starting at 4:00pm I was interviewed by Alec Fischer, a fellow Eleven Who Care awardee, who is making a documentary film for us on swimming. At 5:00pm I was interviewed by KARE-11. Both Alec and KARE-11 filmed the meeting. The meeting went from 6:30-8:30.
We had many groups and institutions represented: the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the Minneapolis Public Schools, Augsburg College, the University of Minnesota, Minnesota Swimming, our fabulous attorneys at RKMC, the Minneapolis City Council, DJR Architecture, Isaac Sports Group, US Aquatics, the Minneapolis Public Health Advisory Council, the Youth Violence Task Force, the South High School swim team, and our Minneapolis Swims board and volunteers.
These photos were taken by Brandon Hunt and Jaylen Williams, two wonderful young men who worked with us last year on the Swimming and Sailing program.
