More about me:
Good Day, I am the former Chief of Aquatic Services at DPR of the District of Columbia. During my tenure I created several programs and events which contributed to the advancement of African-Americans in the world of Aquatics. A few of my creations were Aqua Day Camp, DC Wave Swim Team and the Black History Invitational Swim Meet. I am currently writing a book about the pools of DC titled "Reflecting Pools". I will be glad to meet with anyone to discuss any matter that they would find of interest for me to publish in the forthcoming book and/or DIA. There will be section on Non-breathing Accidents and drown prevention. Looking forward to be associated with DIA and to be of assistance to the mission of the organization.

Seeking Photos

I am seeking photos of DC Public Swimming Pools and Aquatic Programs to insert into one of my two forthcoming books: "Reflecting Pools" and "All In !" 

I will also accept articles that you might feel appropriate.

If you like to talk with me about the books, please call me on 202-368-0301 or email me at Lornhill@yahoo.com. Looking forward to hear from you.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
