the year comes to an end, we can look back at this year of
2020 and realize the blessings of our Club.
prior to the start of our season, the country was gripped
in the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses were closed and
communities encouraged to quarantine to slow the spread of
the virus, planning for best usage of hospital and health
care facilities. As a club, we were very sensitive
to following directions from the State Health Department
and worked, as usual, for preparing the club for the
swimming/tennis season and waiting for health department
guidelines to open.
was determined that we could open under the provisions
that there would not be more than 50 people in the pool
area at any given time and that all social distancing and
sanitary precautions would be made and observed. Our
lifeguards were trained in the precautions and we devised
a card system that would help us keep track of how many
patrons were in the pool area.
we prepared the pool to open, we discovered that the
earthquake that occurred on March 18th damaged
our drainage pipes and so we needed an extra week to get
that prepared before we could open. We are thankful to the
support of our members in finding and repairing the pool
so we could open.
lessons, though reduced due to COVID restrictions, were
successful and many of our younger members can now swim
with both comfort and grace!
all of the drastic events in the spring of 2020, Covid-19,
pool repairs and conditioning the water we were very happy
that we were able to open only a little later than
happy for the cooperation of members this summer and their
consideration to each other. Although the pool
attendance was somewhat restricted, everyone was
understanding and the lifeguards we able to function in
their capacity and managed wonderfully.
also received notice from the county that our taxes have
dramatically increased and we are addressing that issue
the best we can.
a happy note, we now have a marvelous and experienced
tennis instructor available for lessons in 2021.
president, I want to thank you all for your support and
patience through a VERY interesting year. I look forward
the continuation of our incredible Evergreen Swim and
Tennis Club and thank you for the opportunity to have been
