President's Message - 2016
Dear Club Members,
2016 was a great year at the club, enjoyed by the
wonderful membership of our community pool. I want to
recognize the service rendered by our Club Manager Lisa
Vantussenbroek, Club Secretary Ami Neff, Club Treasurer
Tom Cundick and past President Mark Mathie. It is through
their service that we have safe and enjoyable facilities
to bring our families.
A summary of important events and decisions made in 2016
We had a great spring clean-up with a large show of
support from club members. Cleaning assignments were
organized via Google doc and online signup worked well.
This is something that we will continue in the future.
The mastic joint was replaced around the pool. Mastic
joint is the expansion seal that surrounds the large tiles
along the edge of the pool.
Our old boiler was replaced with 2 smaller,
high-efficiency boilers. The advantage of going with two
smaller boilers will allow the club to use only one during
the hotter periods of summer to maintain pool temperature.
By alternating between the two we can reduce utilities and
also extend the life of each boiler.
Guard wages were raised to be more competitive with other
pools in the area. This was done in hopes to retain more
guards from year to year and ensure a more experienced,
qualified lifeguard team so that our pool can be a safer
place for our families to play.
Because school started very early in August and lifeguards
were not available, a "mom and tot" swim time was started
in late August to bridge that gap until the club close
Swimming lessons signup included an option to pay by
credit card and we will continue to offer this option in
Because there were many "biological" accidents in the pool
last year, a break from swimming at the top of every hour
was instituted to try to avoid these events. Guards were
instructed to clear the pool and announce a "Potty Break".
The Annual Club Meeting was held at the Holladay Public
Library and Jessica Huish was nominated as Vice President
and she accepted the nomination. Club financials for 2015
were discussed and no major issues were noted. Club dues
were not changed and remained at $400.
Overall, this was a great swim season with several
improvements. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve
the membership of this awesome facility and look forward
to the coming year.
Whit Coleman, President 2016
