Winter Pool Update

During our regular season last year, it was identified that there were some leaks in the plumbing and pipes for our Pool.  After much debate, the board, Pool Personnel, and Operating committee determined the best course was to repair the problem, during the off season, with minimal disruption to the swim team and Summer pool operations.

As the pool is now closed, here is our current plan for the repair:

They anticipate starting between 12/11 and 12/18.

Work can take up to two weeks for the leak repair. Then the deck will need to be repaired as well. They are taking off from 12/25 to 1/1.

We are looking at completion of the repair in mid January, building in some extra delays with the holidays. I expect by the annual meeting we will have the repairs completed on the leak, and only need to reference the resurfacing of the pool deck.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us!

December 2017 Wine Club

Season’s Greetings Wine Clubbers!

Jane and Dan Burstain will be hosting our December Wine Club on Saturday, December 16th and the Theme is Sparkling Wine/Champagne, the Celebration Wine. As an added bonus for the holiday season, there will be a White Elephant Gift Exchange (Rules are attached). It is not mandatory to participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange.

They will be providing Chicken and Scalloped Potatoes to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment. A Chocolate Dipping Station will also be available for those with a sweet tooth.

There’s not a right or wrong time to serve Sparkling Wine/Champagne, and because of it’s festive nature, what better time than the holidaze. There are many domestic American Sparkling Wines to choose from these days, and then we have the Prosecco style from Italy, Cava style from Spain and your ultimate in taste and style, French Champagne. If the choices are too numerous, as always please ask your wine merchant for suggestions.

So break out your elf ears and Santa hats, the Burstains host a helluva White Elephant Gift exchange!

Remember to bring a Wine glass
