Dominos, craps, blackjack, poker, and roulette was played for our first Havana Nights Casino Party with a great room of festive folks networking and enjoying our end-of-year celebration. Thank you so much to our sponsors: Stellar Sales Alliance – Bar Sponsor, Raypak – Food Sponsor, and Red Rhino – Craps Table Sponsor. Thank you so much to Stephanie and Scott Taggart, Signature Pools and Spas, for bringing the amazing decorations! And thank you to everyone who volunteered, helped set up and break down, and who made this year such a great new reintroduction to Chapter meetings and introductions! Check out all the fun photos on our Facebook page under albums!

We are kicking the year off with the much anticipated Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Swimming Hall of Fame, 1 Hall of Fame Drive, Fort Lauderdale. Save the date and plan to attend Wednesday, January 18 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. This will be a great event so please RSVP to Diane sooner rather than later!

Thank you so much to the Chapter Board of Directors for deciding to get back into networking, events, and meetings. It has been a very successful year under the leadership of Rick Myers, Lo-Chlor. We kicked off the year with a Chapter meeting with more than 40 attendees at HornerXpress. We had multiple Chapter meetings at Tropical Acres which were all nicely attended. Our tabletop at Funky Buddha Brewery was a blast with 31 vendors. We provided a CE presented by Insurance by Ken Brown and moved over to Drive Shack for a networking fundraiser. We ended the year with our Havana Night and are in the process of compiling the donations raised throughout the year. The Chapter has made considerable donation to Every Child a Swimmer, the FSPA Florida Swims Foundation and more. Our Annual Sponsors were amazing and we are so grateful for their support. The Chapter continues to grow and is ending around 65 members. More Board members have been recruited and we are all excited for 2023! Thank you to each of you for your amazing support!

The Chapter wants to thank our 2022 Annual Sponsors who have helped grow our Chapter, donate to important causes and keep the momentum of the Chapter alive. We thank you so much for your support and look forward to 2023! Title Sponsors: AquaCal, Fluidra, Hayward, HornerXpress, Lo-Chlor, Pentair, and StoneHardscapes. Gold Sponsors: Pool Corp., Raypak, and SGM. Silver Sponsors: Florida Stucco and Proline Distributors.

All Chapter meetings are from
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and we do our best to host these meetings on the third Wednesday of the month if possible. If there’s any change in that format, we will note it below. Currently, our meetings are held at Tropical Acres, 2500 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale but we are looking for another venue to welcome us. Please contact Diane if you know of a place that has a private room that can fit 40 people. Thank you!
