Summer Notes from the President – July 9, 2012

Jul 9, 2012   //   by President   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events)  //  No Comments

Hopefully we have all power back now and the extreme heat from last week has left us for a while.  I want to thank all of our members for the true sense of community shown by all last week as many of us dealt with not only no power at our homes, but welcoming our friends and neighbors from the community and TildenWood who also suffered thru the heat.

I received several very nice messages from our neighbors that I would like to share with everyone.  Although they are addressed to me, they apply to all Old Farm Swim Club members:


I totally agree about the “neighborhood gems”… Old Farm opened their doors to us for a week for practices and our entire membership!  It was a pleasure to celebrate the 4th of July in the neighborhood.  And Twin Falls opened their pool to us last weekend so we could swim a “home” meet against Stonegate.  And Woodley Gardens hosted our “home” B meet last week.  Thanks to all who opened your gates and were good neighbors!

You guys are awesome – to offer your pool to other neighborhoods,
during a heat wave and celebration activities is truly remarkable, and
is a tribute to you and your Board.

We, at Regency Estates, were invited with Shady Grove, to use
Hallowell for the A meet tonight (Monday).

Our “private clubs” are really not – they are neighborhood gems, and
truly do serve the community.

Dear Bruce-- Thanks so much to you and the Old Farm community 
for opening your pool to Tilden Woods members during the last week. 
You and your membership could not have been more welcoming and 
generous. Having a place for my kids to hang out and see friends 
while our power was out was a great help and eased a lot 
of strain. Seeing friends from both pools at the July 4 
party made what could have been a miserable day a lot of fun. 
We're very glad to be part of the Old Farm/Tilden Woods 
community. Again, many thanks. Hope the rest of your 
summer is a good one for you and your pool!

Old Farm Pool has once again proven itself to be a true community
pool and I want to thank everyone!
