Orchard Valley Swim Club Donated To Friendship Circle

Orchard Valley Swim Club

Recently, Friendship Circle was the recipient of a very generous gift — the title to the property, formally known as Orchard Valley Swim Club.  Thanks to the generosity of David Glass and Randy Lesson, the Orchard Valley Swim & Racquet Club will give Friendship Circle the opportunity to further develop it’s programs for individuals with special needs.

While no decision has been made as of yet on the use of the property, discussion are underway on how to restore the property to its former state. If you would like to share some of your memories of the swim club or would would like to be involved in the planning or implementation of the restoration, please contact [email protected]
