Dear Club Members,
The Evergreen Swim and Tennis Club was built in 1961,
which means it is approaching 60 years of operation. We
are grateful to the original club founders as hundreds of
member families, many multi-generational, that have
enjoyed using the swimming pool and tennis court
facilities through the years. The club has been a
wonderful addition to our community.
We are also grateful for our current and past board
members, club manager, all club employees and of course
our members that help oversee and enjoy the club
regularly. Because of everyone's help and service, we have
had another fun and safe summer of recreational swimming,
swim lessons and tennis lessons!
Based on membership feedback from our 2017 annual member
meeting in April, the board decided to send out a survey
asking members about their interest in forming a Long
Range Planning Committee for the club. The purpose of the
committee is to research, promote, analyze, design,
develop and present a variety of possible improvement
initiatives for our swim club in the coming years, both
short-term and long-term.
There were 79 memberships which voted in this survey, and
over 90% of them were in favor of organizing the planning
committee. Based on these results, the board recently
formed the Long Range Planning Committee. Whit Coleman has
graciously volunteered to chair this committee. We thank
him and the other club members that have willingly
accepted to serve under his direction for an indefinite
amount of time.
We also want to thank Ami Neff, Club Secretary, and Tom
Cundick, Club Treasurer, who have served very successfully
on the board for many years. Thank you as well to Lisa
Vantussenbroek who manages all club operations. We are
very grateful to her.
Please join me in welcoming Stacie Henry as the 2018
President. We invite you to attend our annual club meeting
in April 2018 as here we will nominate a suitable Vice
President. At this meeting we will also discuss our past
swim and tennis season, as well as what members can expect
for the future.
Please feel free to reach out to myself, any of the board
members, or swim club manager with questions and/or
feedback. We have enjoyed the opportunity to serve our
members and we look forward to the coming year!
