The board of directors met in January. Major discussion included the aging building and mechanical systems long past their lifespan. The board saw an initial building renovation proposal. The board agreed to continue the process by hosting special committees to look at financial strategies, logistics and marketing. January 23rd was a great day!! The Pool was re-dedicated and a ribbon cutting held. Water Classes begin in February. Thanks for your patience! The Morris AB Room will be closed in February so we can install a new heating system. Thanks for adapting, as we will need to move groups around to accommodate everyone. CLICK HERE FOR NEWSLETTER
