Word from Food and Beverage Manager
We are currently reviewing applications for lifeguards (let us know if you know someone who is interested in a position) and will schedule the first meeting in May. We have also hired three new servers, Kennedy, Kevin and Madison. New uniforms were purchased for staff in order to present a more polished image. A new dining room menu should be out now, and a Pub menu will be presented to the BOD for approval before the pool opens in May.

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. There will be some restoration of the Pub done to bring it up to a condition in time for yearly inspections.

Spring Cleanup will take place Saturday, April 13th and Sunday, April 14th 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. (Look for additional details on Clean Up below).

We are also looking for a large portable gas/propane cooker/grill. Please keep an eye out for it, the Club will need it in time for our Annual Oyster Roast. It's an additional expense, so we would like to own one instead of having to rent it each year.

We are trying to offer many opportunities for our members to come out to the Club in order to spend the food&beverage minimum. We encourage our members to do it before the very end of the month. We are doing our best to impress you and make it a great experience for everyone, but it's becoming harder to accomplish with an unpredictable number of guests and a large amount of to go orders on top of special functions needs.
