An open letter to Valleycrest members

Dear Members,

For those whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, please let me introduce myself; my name is Laura Derry. For the last 2 years I have been proudly serving as President of the Valleycrest Aquatic Association (VAA). For the benefit of both our new and returning members, I would like to explain how VAA functions, as well as our relationship with the city and their partners.

Established in late 2013 as a non-profit organization, VAA works in partnership with the Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro to provide an aquatics program at Valleycrest Pool since its inauguration at the beginning of the 2014 swimming season. The pool’s facilities, daily maintenance, lifeguards, front desk, and snack bar are currently managed under a 2 year contract awarded by the city to a private company named SODEM.

Feed the staff week

OmnomThey teach our lessons, they coach our teams, they keep us safe. Did you know that there are Valleycrest Aquatic Association and SODEM staff at the pool every day from before 7:00am and until past 9:00pm? It’s a Valleycrest tradition to show our appreciation by preparing a home cooked meal, or bringing in some treats for the staff.

To give everyone an opportunity to prepare something special (and not have too much food at once) we are asking families with surnames beginning with A to J to participate starting on Monday, August 3rd, then families with surnames beginning with K to Z starting on Monday, August 10th. Not able to do it during your week? No problem, just pick the other week.

But what do coaches, instructors and lifeguards eat? Some have said that they will eat just about anything!

Please be sure to label:

  1. Any foods – especially home cooked – that contain known allergens such as nuts, shellfish, etc!
  2. Any dishes/containers that you’d like to have returned to you!
