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.
