The Shores Club and Our Star Spangled Banner Event

The Grand Opening of the Shores Club and the Potomac Shores Star Spangled Banner event were this weekend, so it was pretty busy around the neighborhood. When we first arrived tables were set up for residents to pick up their beach bag of goodies that the HOA provided for us. It was a very nice touch.
The social committee was also there taking surveys to get a feel for what events, activities, and clubs we would want at the Social Barn. Some of my favorite ideas were cooking demonstrations, book clubs, marriage "camps"and yoga and aquatic fitness classes! 
The Locker Rooms and fitness barn look great!

One of the three pools at the Shores Club is a competition and lap pool. Potomac Shores plans on having a swim team starting next year. There is even an "amphitheater" viewing area for fans and family to sit and watch the swim meets. I have not heard if they will be offering swim lessons in addition to this but I really hope they do.

 After we enjoyed a couple hours by the pool it was time to get ready for the Star Spangled Banner Event. We saw this guy there!

To end the night our family went to the bluff - which is the site of the future Marketplace of Potomac Shores - to watch fireworks . Tim's Rivershore is right down the river and sets off fireworks several times during the summer each year. Sitting on the lawn of the bluff is the perfect spot to view the fireworks!  And once the VRE station is completed transportation will receive a major improvement in the area :-) By the way, I heard a rumor from a Ryan Homes employee that Whole Foods is the number one grocery store food chain they are hoping to bring to the Marketplace. EEEEEK. I would be one happy mama if that were to come true.

In our next post I will discuss the future Marketplace (Town Center) in more detail as well as talk about some funtastic events you can do all summer long right here in Prince William County, VA.

Shore hope to see you around the neighborhood!
