There's lawns to cut for barbecues, boats to bCj refurbished for Sunday cruises and even tennis rackets to be re- strung for the next match. Getting ready for summer fun is a family thing too. With everyone chipping in to help, there's more time to enjoy vacation time. After several years of going camping in a smaller tent-trailer, the Donald White family of South Charleston, decided to buy an A i r s t r e a m Trailer and set up a "weekend vacation home"at Cliffside Recreation Center. Mrs. White admitted they still were moving things down to the trailer after having it there for several weeks. The lifeguards at Windermere Swimming Pool are up bright and early each morning cleaning the pool and grounds before the mid-day crowds wander in. Such things as testing the chlorine content of the water, vacuuming the pool, setting out lawn chairs and doing minor repairs, occupy the majority of off-stand time of Windermere lifeguards Chuck Rector and David Harmon. Water is also the major summer activity for local boaters who launch their crafts from Mitch's Marina in St. Albans. According to Steve Ewing, a parttime salesman there, the influx of boat repairs is heavy in early summer as many owners have painting and refurbishing done at the marina before good weather sets in. Whatever your summer hobby, sport or pastime, work,-for the fun is coming.
