I hope everyone is well and thawed out and getting back into the swing of things, wow these kids have so many make-up days!
A couple of things I wanted to inform you all:
I just wanted to extend the discounted membership dues until March 17th.
The dues are the same as the 2017 rates, minus $5, and I encourage you all to take advantage of this deal. After March 17th, these rates will be gone for good! We’ll be posting those amounts soon.
Last year’s rates:
$325 – Regular Members
$305 – Stock Members
$295 – Active/retired military
$295 – Seniors age 65 and up
$195 – Single Membership
You can pay online on our Membership Purchase Page. A $10 convenience fee is added for online or in person credit card purchases.
As in years past, you will receive five free guest passes, as long as you join by April 15th (but remember, membership prices go up March 18th).
Please consider joining early. We are still paying off the new filters, and with the lifeguard pay increase, we are experiencing a little crunch on expenses. Let me know if you would like to split your dues into two parts, that would work also, but I hope you can get in on these savings!
Second: We will be having a Paint Party Fund Raiser, Date TBA
I am super excited about this, I have never been to a paint party, people tell me they are great. Please plan on coming out and bring a friend!
As soon as I have the date and time (Looks like it may be be on a Sunday afternoon) as soon as I get the information (cost as well) I will get back to you.
Third: Our annual St.Patrick’s Day Party is gearing up in March, please spread the word to your family and friends about this fantastic party. It’s an excellent time to get back together before the heat is on and we encourage you to bring friends… we need more members!! We have a tentative date for the party, March 16 (Friday) at 6:30pm. Will confirm as soon as we know.
Lastly: We are actively seeking a pool/operations, pool/manager for our summer season of 2018. Ideally, we would like to hire from within our membership… but we will be placing the ad in the coming weeks. Please ask around, if you know of anyone who has management experience or pool operations experience, send them our way. It is possible to make this two separate jobs if needed. Call/e-mail or text me if you need a job description or more information.
Also needed is a Swim Team Coordinator. This is really important. Swim Team gets going in April, so we do not have much time! Please consider helping out… this is a volunteer position, and it is so rewarding. Our team is the best (in my opinion) and we are so looking forward to another great swim season. Please consider helping out!!
Thank you all for being part of the best recreation association in Newport News.
I look forward to seeing you all soon, I hope you can get those discounted memberships in!!
