    I hope that you all enjoyed the hot and sunny season this year at Fairfields as much as we did! It was great to see so many families out enjoying the pool to beat the heat. As we approach our Annual General Meeting next week and begin planning for next years season we need your help.

    As a member owned and operated facility we rely heavily on members to volunteer for a variety of roles including joining the Board of Directors. The pool cannot operate without a Board of Directors who ensure that the pool is operational, that we have lifeguards and an amazing level of programming included as part of Membership!

    Several board members (myself included) have been on the Board for many years and will be stepping down for various reasons. We are reaching out today to ask for at least 4 members to join the Board or the pool will not be able to open next spring!!

    Participating on the Board of Directors isn't a full-time job so it doesn't take up too much time (especially if all of the Board and support positions are filled!). We have provided links that briefly outlined the positions below and we ask that you seriously consider helping out so that we can ensure the pool operates next year! If you have any questions or want more details on specific roles please call Jenn at 289-837-1888 or email info@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com.

    Thank you in advance to everyone!

    Jenn

    This is a just a friendly reminder to ensure that you have recorded your volunteer hours online today (September 30, 2016) if you have not already done so. After today, cheques from members who have not completed and recorded their 5 hour requirement will be cashed, while all the others will be destroyed unless otherwise requested. Note that hours used to fulfill your yearly requirement cannot also be used by your son/daughter for their high school volunteer hours.

    If you have signed up for the Fall Clean-Up or will be cutting grass throughout the month of October, you are able to register those hours now (2 hours per volunteer position) or e-mail us if you have any questions.

    Kind regards,

    2016 Board of Directors

    Hi Members,

    Due to the heat wave coming to an end and the guards school, sports, arts, etc., schedules, I just wanted to let you know that the pool will remain open until Tuesday evening at 8.00pm. Same week-day hours as last week, (4-8pm).  As of Wednesday, September 14th, Fairfields will officially be closed for the 2016 year.  

    Thank you again for such an amazing season and especially to the guards that were able to help us out past our expected closing date - Chelsea Rodman, Evan Chatfield and Mackenize Ingram.

    I'm sorry if I have not been able to reply to your e-mails lately, Francine Vance and I, with a few key others, have been working feverishly to finalize our application for a large grant from the Trillium Foundation (approx. $250K) and it is due this week.  Once we have finalized our application, I will return all outstanding e-mails.

    If you are one of the many people that have obtained quotes for us, can you please submit them to info@fairfieldsswimmingclub.com today.  Even if you only have 1 of the 3 quotes obtained at this time, please just send that.  We need to provide numbers or else that part of the process can not be included in the upgrades to the pool.

    So you are all aware, the following is what we are looking to upgrade at the pool:

    1. Update the pool’s plumbing and ventilation systems.
    2. Resurfacing and repainting the pool and deck.
    3. Replacing the fence with one that is safe and not easily climbed.
    4. Replace our temporary shade structure with a permanent one.
    5. Repairing the parking lot.

    As always, please send me any questions, comments or concerns and I will get back to you later this week.

    Also, a reminder that we will need board members for next year as 95% of our board has confirmed that they are retiring.  We need you to keep the pool going!!

    All the best,

    Jenn Tondino
    President, 2016 Board of Directors

    I hope you have enjoyed your summer so far.  I just wanted to let you know that there is a long list of volunteer opportunities listed on the website that still need to be done.  If you still need to get your volunteer hours done, please take a look as these will likely be the last of the opportunities for the season.

    Thanks,

    Board of Directors, 2016

    Dear Parents and Swimmers of the July 16, 2016 Citi*Swim meet,

    Congratulations on your first Citi*Swim meet this season!   Everyone did very well!!   If you haven`t received your ribbon(s) as yet, please see Chelsea R.

    Although the meet was held at the Lewis-Bradley Pool in Clarkson, the meet was hosted by Frank McKechnie Pool.  Among other things, the host pool is responsible for recording the results of each event (male and female: butterfly, back, breast, freestyle according to age; and mixed relays)  and awarding ribbons to swimmers that placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the events.

    Unfortunately, the ribbons awarded to Fairfield swimmers that we received from Frank McKechnie only indicate the name of the swimmer stapled to a 1st, 2nd or 3rd ribbon. – we have no idea what ribbon goes with what event, nor do we know the swimmer’s time.    I talked to Heather MacNeil of Frank McKechnie and asked her to provide me with a spreadsheet or even a handwritten account of swimmer name, pool name, and time of those that placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd so that I would be able to match up the ribbons we received with the events and report that information to you.     Heather apologized that the ribbons did not indicate event and time.  She admitted that the record keeping was not done particularly well for this first meet and that it would be much better for the remaining meets (on a go forward basis ribbons will show name, event and time).   She didn`t sound very optimistic about providing me with any further event information; however, she does has my contact information in case she does track down more information.   If I receive anything further from Frank McKechnie, I will let you know.

    Hi everyone,

    I don't think I'm the only one that enjoys a cup of coffee (or many!) to get the gears turning in the morning. 

    As we have kicked off our third block of lessons this week, please remember that our "No Food or Drink (other than water)" on the pool deck applies to kids and adults alike.

    That includes your Grande Half Soy Caramel Latte Machiatto or Go Cup from home as well unfortunately! 

    We're happy to report our members have been doing great with keeping food and drink off the pool deck lately and this is just a small heads up for coffee and similar drinks particularly in the morning hours and at our lessons.

    It's a hot one out there, see you at the pool soon.

    2016 Board of Directors
