    Dear Members,

    We still need to fill some of the Volunteer Support roles this year.  These roles do NOT require you to come to board meetings.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you know what you are doing.  We are here to guide you.  We can keep things the same, or switch things up.  The three main areas we still require help in are:

     Social Coordinator 

    Grants Coordinator (researches and finds grants appropriate for Fairfields, coordinates with volunteers for grant writing or does it themselves)

     Citi*Swim Coordinator

    All of these roles are vital to programming & running of the pool.  They are not intended to be roles that you are required to complete solely on your own.  Ideally we will be able to create a team for each role.

    I look forward to seeing you poolside!

    Jeffrey Rees

    Vice President, Communications
    2017 Board of Directors

    Dear Members,

    I wanted to thank those that attended our 2016 Annual General Meeting. We ended up with a larger than normal turn out and it was wonderful.  Let’s see if we can get even more of you out next year! 

    Thankfully some previous Board Members and Volunteer Support Members have decided to stay on again this year to continue helping out at the pool.  Those people are Jenn Tondino (President, Staffing), David Brown (Treasurer), Jan Rodman (Secretary), Mario Josipovic (By-Law & Legal Coordinator) & Steven Brandon (Marketing & Social Media Coordinator). 

    We have had a number of new members step up this year to join the Board & Volunteer Support and we are so appreciative of that.  They are Jeffrey Rees (VP, Communications), Sara Behjat (Director, Membership), Dan Keenliside (Director, Water Maintenance), Robert Doyle (Director, Facility & Property Maintenance), Karin Kormann (Volunteer Coordinator), Janice Herget (New Membership Coordinator), Jake Tondino (Staffing Support), Kyle Keenliside (Water Support), Ray Rodman (Facility Support).

    The board is looking forward to help create a wonderful summer for you and your family this year. I have included the 2017 Board of Directors below with their e-mail address links if you would like to contact any of them directly. I have also included the boards current volunteer support team, who are integral in helping us run our facility.

    I look forward to seeing you poolside!

    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!

    Sadly, we have had no interest from any members stepping up to join the Board for the 2017 season at this time.  Tomorrow’s Annual General Meeting will still be held at 7:00PM.  Near the end of the meeting, the 2016 Board of Directors will be dissolved.  At that point if we do not have at least 4 members join the Board in the following positions, President/Communications, VP/Staffing, Treasurer & Secretary, all business at Fairfields will be suspended until a time when we do have those positions filled.  Ideally we will have all 7 Board positions filled to help disperse the workload of running a pool. 

    This will seriously affect all programming, staffing, current & future grant applications and the operation and potential opening of the pool next spring.  We would also have to look at options to hire someone to run the day to day business of the pool.  Of course, if this is the route we take the annual dues will increase dramatically.

    Participating on the Board of Directors doesn’t need to be a full-time job (especially if all of the Board and support positions are filled!).  However, often board members do spend a fair bit more time than a member who is not on the board.  To account for this the members voted in favour that Annual Dues be refunded to Very Active Board Members (those that contribute over 100 hours of valuable service to Fairfields Swimming Club).

    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

    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.

    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
