      Board of Governors Nile Swim Club of Yeadon

      Yeadon, PA

As the first swim club in the United States founded by African-Americans, the Nile Swim Club is a historic landmark in Delaware county. Founded 53 years ago, this groundbreaking club has offered residents of Delaware and Philadelphia counties a safe space for generations of families. The current tax burden has put the club in danger of closing it's doors this year. We are trying to build support and awareness of this club in order to provide more years of service to the Delaware county community. Please help us save our heritage. The Nile: 53 years of Pride, History and Family Values.

To:
Delaware County Board of Taxes (PA)
Revise and lessen the tax burden of the Nile Swim Club of Yeadon

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I grew up in Yeadon from 1960- til 1978 when I left to go to college. The Nile Swim Club was a very big part of each and every summer. I learned how to swim there and made many dear friends that are still in my life today!
