Notes from the President – End of the 2012 Season

Sep 9, 2012   //   by President   //   News, Notes from the President  //  No Comments

Dear Old Farm Swim and Paddle Tennis Club Members,

Labor Day marked the close of the very successful 2012 swim season at Old Farm Pool. Many people enjoyed the closing day events, including fund raising for the tot-lot (please consider purchasing a brick as part of the fund raising efforts for the tot lot (https://www.bricksrus.com/order/oldfarmbricks), barbeque lunch for all, adult liquid refreshments and our four-legged friends dip in the pool. I want to thank all members who helped store the deck furniture for the winter – we finished quickly and locked the gate by 7:15 pm.

We are now opening our Platform Tennis Season. There has been a great amount of interest in the sport. Please watch for announcements in the near future about upcoming paddle tennis events, including exhibition matches, lessons and league opportunities.

In the upcoming months the Board of Directors will be working on many projects that will help provide our members an improved experience at the pool in 2013. Our major projects include:

  • Installing a new white coat in both pools
  • Installing stairs and handrails in the shallow end of the main pool for easy access and to allow parents to comfortably sit and watch their young children in the pool

Our smaller projects include:

  • Cleaning up/replacing shrubbery
  • Tree work
  • General maintenance of the pool house
  • General maintenance of the pool facility

Many of our projects are performed by volunteers from our membership. Volunteers allow us to avoid using your membership dues to perform routine tasks and help to stretch our budget as far as possible. We are always looking for help from our membership, and your hard work will directly benefit you, your family and your friends. Please consider donating a couple of hours to benefit everyone at the pool.

Members have also asked about joining the Board of Directors in order to participate in our club’s management. We welcome those of you who are willing to dedicate time and experience to the Board. If you are interested, please contact me by e-mail at president@oldfarmpool.org or call me at 301-980-9378. Elections for new Board Members will be held at our General Membership meeting in November.

Lastly, I want to thank all of our current members of the Board of Directors. Each of them has done a magnificent job this season balancing work, family, and pool events to make Old Farm Pool the great place that it is.

Thanks again to everyone for a great 2012.
