2019 President’s Letter

 

 

 

Dear Members,

Welcome to the 2019 season at Fountain Green Swim Club!  We hope everyone is ready for a busy, fun and safe summer at the pool.  Whether you’re a seasoned member or a new family, we hope you will enjoy the spruced-up facility, exciting special events and the smooth-running daily experience we strive to provide.

Your Board of Directors and management team have been hard at work preparing the Club for opening.  They facilitated two major renovation projects that will make a huge difference in Club maintenance and performance.  First, you may notice a brighter, cleaner atmosphere about the buildings on the Fountain Green property.  That’s a result of the new roofs installed on the pavilions, rest rooms and concession buildings and the gate house.  These new roofs were much needed.

Second, we have corrected a long-standing problem with our pump and filtration system for the main pool. The system has been reconfigured to allow the water to more efficiently be cycled through the filtration system. We anticipate a much smoother process with this system!

Thank you to everyone who responded to the member survey at the end of last season.  It yielded some valuable feedback, and the Board of Directors has incorporated many of your comments into the plan for the 2019 season. Following are some highlights you can expect this summer:

Social activities:

  • A GaGa pit and a Four Square court will be built on the property.  If you’re not familiar with these games, don’t miss opening day play!
  • Adult Night and Crab Feast return!
  • DJ Russ plays every other Sunday afternoon.
  • Look for more details to come in the social calendar

Guest Passes:
The members-only days this year will be Opening Day, Memorial Day and Labor Day.  No guests will be permitted on these three specific days.
New this year, guests will be permitted on July 4.

You can purchase guest passes online or at the gate house for $5 each, until 9:00 p.m. on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th.   After that time, all guest pass fees are $10.00. Please remember, guest passes do not roll over to the following year.

Important Dates:
The General Membership Meeting will be held on April 16, 2019, at Fountain Green Elementary School, beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by swim team registration.  Additional swim team registration will be from 10 a.m. to noon on May 11, 2019 at Fountain Green Swim Club.

Pavilion rentals will begin on May 18, along with swim lesson sign-up and a last-chance swim team registration.

Please use our website as an information resource throughout the season.  It is the best place to find out about unexpected pool closings, weather-related hours and to sign up online for events and pavilion rentals.  www.fountaingreenswimclub.org.

Finally, we need your cooperation in gathering the correct contact information for all members. Please make sure you have given us an e-mail address and a cell phone number, as we will be beginning member communication, like pool closings and payment reminders through both e-mailing and texting.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact me or a member of the Board of Directors.  Let’s get ready for a great summer season!

Best regards,
Greg Baldino
