A Few Words From Our Food & Beverage Manager Valerie Donski
GEARING UP FOR WARMER WEATHER....
We are currently reviewing applications for lifeguards and will schedule the first meeting in May. We have also hired two new servers, Abigail and Hunter, whom will come on board at the end of May and uniforms will be purchased for the life guards and pub staff in order to present a more polished image. A new dining room menu should be out by the end of April, and a Pub menu will be presented to the BOD for approval before the pool opens.

We have many projects we are trying to tackle before summer arrives. These improvements will have a positive impact on the overall experience of our current members and new members. Currently the staff service area is undergoing remodeling, next will be the restoration of the Pub to include purchasing new equipment that will help staff better serve our club members, their families and friends.  

 Spring Cleanup will take place Saturday, April 21 st and Sunday, April 22 nd 9 am – 3 pm. Donuts and coffee will be provided in the mornings and there will be a complimentary lunch. We would like to encourage all members to participate in this annual event. It allows each and every member to take ownership in our club and help make it look its BEST. If you’re not able to contribute physically, but would like to help out, donations can be given to Laurie in the office to purchase supplies, equipment, and all kinds of odds and ends needed to spruce things up.   
Along these same lines, our Dock Master, Rob Miner, is busy getting the docks ready. He and Brian Nehrbass are working diligently to gather the funds and manpower needed to repair and improve our docks and piers. 

 Lastly, a proposal has been received for a new POS system, which we hope the upgrade will take place within a month after board approval.
