At the Special General Meeting for Shareholders held on November 7, 2012 at 7:00PM, shareholders present voted in favor to adopt the motion read (and previously distributed to shareholders via email) that allows Valleycrest to move forward with the Ville de Montreal for the building of a new aquatic facility. Those present were also given a first look at preliminary plans for the new pool and surrounding buildings.
It was also confirmed that Valleycrest will remain open for the 2013 season, and will also be hosting two NAA events during the summer – the Division A time trials, and the boys Waterpolo semifinals. It’s going to be a great summer!
A reminder for ALL SHAREHOLDERS that Valleycrest Pool will be holding a Special General Meeting on Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 at 7:00pm. A previous communication was emailed to members that this meeting was to be taking place at the Grier chalet next to the pool, but due to scheduling conflicts this meeting will now be held at Holleuffer Chalet at 75 Charlevoix, in Kirkland (please click on the link for directions from Valleycrest pool).
On November 1st, all shareholders should have also received an email message from our pool president including documents attached for your reference as well as the agenda for this meeting. If you are a shareholder and you have not received this message, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can forward this to you right away.
In an effort to be “green” we will not be providing printed copies of the agenda, or the other documents, the night of the meeting. We encourage you to print your own copies should you wish, or (if you are able to) refer to them on your smartphone, tablet or portable computer.
Is your child part of Valleycrest Swim team? Would you like to be pool side to see your child compete? or do you or someone you know just love the sport of swimming and would like to offer your time?
Your Valleycrest Vipers, winners of Division B 2012, will be advancing to Division A next year and we need certified officials for our swim meets. Your involvement is essential! We have very limited amount of parents who are trained to officiate the swim meets, leaving our Swim Meet Manager scrambling to find officials. The more people we have trained the the stronger Valleycrest will be, plus the benefits you receive being an official such as having fun working while being in the front row watching your own child compete, making new acquaintances and of course being an official you get food!!
Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to attend free of charge. Upon completion you will be a certified Level 1 Swim Official to fulfill Timer and Safety Official positions and will receive a certification pin from the Federation de Natation du Quebec.
