Dear FWPA Family,
There are several changes to the FW Pool social calendar in August. The website fwpool.com reflects these changes. Some events were removed or combined a to hopefully increase participation and so we have enough volunteers to run these events. We are in need of one or two additional volunteers to help at each event, as well. If you can volunteer for a specific event, please let Melissa Carriles Biggham or Dorene Albury know of your availability. You could also email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know of your availability. August events are listed below.
We are all volunteers trying to run a small business that is “Our Pool”, because it is member run. Only lifeguards get a paycheck. We are desperately in need of help to continue to run quality events. We are also desperately in need of EVERYONES support at these events, meaning please attend. The social events are not only fun, they bring us together socially as a community while most importantly helping close the financial gap. Membership dues do not come close to covering our yearly operating expenses. We depend on social events to help us make ends meet and to allow us to continue to make improvements to the infrastructure of the pool.
In the next year we are looking at some potentially costly repairs. We have a major leak in our pool drain which causes us to lose thousands of dollars of water a year. We have a leaking pool filter. We need to repair or replace the pool white coat. Additionally, the pool road needs repair from the major rain events this summer. We also would like to continue to make updates to the bathrooms and pool deck furniture.
To help the pool remain financially viable, please support as many of our social events as possible. If you are a shareholder, please consider running for the pool board. General shareholder elections for the pool board will be held at the end of October. Please let us know of your interest. And finally, get your neighbors to join for 2019. Memberships are 50% off for the last 4 weeks of summer if you are a new member or have not been a member for the last three years. If you refer a neighbor who joins, you can still earn $75!
Thank you, Sincerely, the Fort Washington Pool Board
