Missi’s house sits directly across the street from the County Fair Swim Club swimming pool. During the summer months, Missi makes her way to the pool every single day to check on the kids, pool, and volunteers. The most memorable moments I have of Missi are when the kids flock to her once she arrives. Sometimes she doesn’t even make it in the pool area before the kids are lined up to give her a hug. The kids love her.
I met Missi Pfeifer ten years ago but was not involved with the pool until 2009. I volunteered and would help spray the deck, work on flyers, or perform any other duties as assigned. Over the course of the 2009 summer I learned just how special the County Fair Swim Club really is. During the last four years my friendship with Missi has grown into something special. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She would do the same for any of the kids who frequent the County Fair Swim Club.
I have watched Missi run the pool for four years and her job is never easy. From arranging fundraising events and volunteers to prepping the pool for the upcoming season. Missi works very hard to make the County Fair Swim Club a welcoming and friendly environment for the east Lawrence families and children.
On April 29, 2012, the Lawrence-Journal World wrote an article about Missi’s dedication the the County Fair Swim Club and the children who frequent the pool. In addition, Missi won a Larry Award for her “years of dedication to the children and community served by the County Fair Swim Club.”
Missi, you deserve the award ten times over. Your hard work and dedication to the pool is something you can take with you for the rest of your life. You have touched so many lives, including my own. It’s not just the children who love you, it’s the parents, volunteers, and community who love you too. Congratulations on your well-deserved award.

Much time was spent on Sunday, June 06, 2010 cleaning up the pool grounds and trying to prepare for opening day. Volunteers cleaned out the employee room, painted the shelving, removed clutter, power washed chairs, tables, the pool deck, and inside of the pool. In addition, because of your helpful donations, we were able to build two new picnic tables and repair one! Thank you! We accomplished a lot on Sunday, but there is plenty more to do and we still need your help!
