Happy Holidays from Surreywood Swim Club!

Happy December! 

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for another year as your neighborhood Pool and Community Center. We are especially grateful for the 79 neighbors who contributed to our Capital Campaign and member challenge which brought in an additional $11,000.

Maintenance for our 2018 season will include the resurfacing all three pools at a cost of over $63,000+ in expenses, so every fundraising contribution is helpful to our operational and maintenance costs.

 

We’re ready for 2018 Members! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In an effort to streamline membership, we have updated our membership types, prices, and online application. This new application should be easy to read and understand, but if you have any concerns please email them to surreywoodpool@gmail.com.

We will also accept credit card payments for your membership/payment plan. Please note, there is a $15 fee associated with payment plans and/or credit card payments.

Sunday, February 4, 2018

 

Attention all football fans.  Are you ready for the game this year because Surreywood’s Super Bowl Pool is returning with 100 boxes to fill!

 

Each box is $10.00 which means that if all the boxes are filled the entire pot will be worth $1,000.00!!! (Should less than 90 boxes be filled the pot will be worth the total collected.)

 

Half of this amount will be donated to the Surreywood Swim and Tennis Club, while the remaining half will be split among 4 winners. As a not-for-profit organization, there is no personal gain involved.  

 

A winner will be announced after each quarter.

1st Quarter – $ 75.00

2nd Quarter – $ 100.00

3rd Quarter – $ 125.00

4th Quarter – $ 200.00

 

Please drop off your cash or checks payable to the Surreywood Swim and Tennis Club to the Meagher home at 2200 Bloomsherry Drive.

 

A chart with all the names and numbers will be circulated by e-mail before the game.  Please provide your e-mail address when dropping off your payment or email rosannmeagher@gmail.com to ensure that you’re on the list.

 

Once ALL 100 boxes have been filled, a non-participant will draw the numbers.  This means that the actual allocation of numbers is entirely random and unbiased.

 

The deadline to submit your payment is Noon, Saturday, February 3, 2018.

 

Good luck!

Diamond Pool Membership

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 4.54.01 PM

As you may know, the pool has been fundraising all year to help with major repair expenses that drained our reserves. We were lucky enough to get credit terms to make these repairs and hoped that we would raise enough funds to cover these expenses. Unfortunately, we have not raised enough funds and summer is almost over. While we have a brick fundraiser that is helping contribute to our repair bill, we have only sold a dozen or so bricks at this time and desperately need to generate the cash to pay these bills.

As such the Diamond Membership was born! This is a great opportunity to get us cash in the bank account, while offering an incentive towards the generous members who are able to do so. With this membership, we are asking for a member to pay in advance their 2016 (full price) dues multiplied by four, to cover 2017-2020, and your membership in 2021 will be free.  This will not only lock in your member pricing over the next four years but it will significantly help the pool get out of our debt and back into sunny skies.

We hope you will consider becoming a Diamond member. And if not that you can contribute any amount to our capital campaign fundraiser or by purchasing a family or business brick.

To request a diamond membership invoice, please email us or contact Shirley Houck by submitting a request for an invoice online here.

 

Diamond Memberships are non-transferrable.

Our Capital Campaign to help pay for the emergency repairs to the pool is continuing to slowly build.  We have now raised 45% of the funds needed to pay off our loan.  We are still continuing to fundraise and accept donations; any amount is helpful!

Parent/Tot Swim Lessons

Class Description:
Parent and child will love these fun, game-filled, 1/2 hour lessons.  Positive reinforcement helps the child enjoy the water, never forcing the child to submerge.  This class is an excellent introduction to the pool and preschool lessons.
