Grand Opening Celebration Recap

Thank you to all who joined us for a fun filled La Madrona evening on Saturday, October 3rd. What a treat it was to have the D’oh Bros band fill the La Madrona pool area with classic rock hits. The music was heard by all whether you were swimming in the brand new 25 yard lap pool, bouncing around in the recreation pool, or sitting front in center next to our new fire pit. The celebration included both a kids acro yoga class and a kids kenpo fit class. We had hotdogs, tacos, and drink specials that many were able to enjoy!

La Madrona looks forward to having more events like this in the warm weather months.

Check out some of the great photographs taken by Gina Turley during the event.

It’s True! Your brain is the fattest organ in your body. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are required for maintenance of optimal health, but they cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from dietary sources. Join us for an eye opening nutrition class, led by Holistic Nutrition Consultant Ashlea Hartz. You will learn the foundations of holistic nutrition, and leave knowing the healthy fats you should be including in your diet in order to achieve your personal health goals.

All ages welcome!
