We have really enjoyed seeing some familiar faces this week as we started up our onsite waterfront and tennis classes! We don’t want to jinx anything, but classes have gone so well and we want to thank you for all your cooperation and understanding as we try our best to offer classes in the safest ways we can this summer. 
We are thrilled to annouce that starting on July 20 the KBIA pool will be open and offering swim lessons! Lessons this summer will look a little different, and like our other onsite offerings, will have reduced class sizes in compliance with our current guidelines. Registration is now open and our onsite classes document has been updated to include swim offerings (located here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tzGhKSW7g4Xd-6XWg05M801IX-AeBOlY/view?usp=sharing).
PLEASE NOTE: Only registrations e-mailed to [email protected] will be processed, NO CALLS PLEASE!
Week 4 virtual classes and nighttime experiences will be shared to current members via email by the end of this week. Log on to the Zoom classes through the links posted in the Google Doc (updated every Thursday for the following week) and catch up on classes you missed on our KBIA Virtual Community Programming Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/KBIAvirtualcommunity/) or KBIA CIT Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/KBIACITgroup/).
A reminder that even if you don’t participate in the daytime classes, we will have nighttime experiences. Check out the lineup for week 4 here:
Speaking of nighttime experiences, our weekly Teen Night will now be held onsite at KBIA! This coming Thursday, July 16, teens are invited to join us on the KBIA lawn for ice cream and lawn games from 6:30-8:30pm. Cost is $20 per participant, and registrations are accepted only by e-mail at [email protected]
As always, let us know if you have questions. We are in the office from 9am-4pm every Monday-Friday now and we can do business through the window on the porch!

This year’s race is in memory of Annie McNamara Evans, a longtime supporter of KBIA and former counselor, who recently lost her coruageous battle with cancer. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Dempsey Center in her name.

The Bauman Family Foundation will be matching our contributions to the Dempsey Center in Annie’s name. The Dempsey Center provides services that can help cancer patients manage the emotional, mental and physical impact of cancer.

We hope you will join us in this great cause.
