Thanks to Ken Pierce and the team at Basecrete who presented a very informational meeting. There were tons of questions and we appreciate everyone for coming out! Ken, we so appreciate you and Basecrete’s support and willingness to step up and support our Chapter by presenting!

Instead of our usual meeting on Wednesday, July 14, we are heading over to a private room at Headpinz, 14513 Global Pkwy., Fort Myers. This will take place from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m! This Member Appreciation Bowling Bash for members and their employees. This is the Chapter’s way of saying thank you, and a night out where we can move away from the regular meeting and have fun bowling. You must RSVP! We want to be sure we have space for everyone so let Diane know how many to expect from your company. Each member may send up to four employees, after that it is $30 per player. Food and beverages will be provided. A huge thank you to our Title Sponsor HornerXpress and also to Insurance by Ken Brown, Colonial Pool & Spa, Aqua Leak Detection and Built Right Pool Heaters for sponsoring this event! We look forward to seeing everyone there!

The Chapter is offering free swim lessons to FSPA member companies and their employees. Because of our recent sponsorships and Chapter efforts, a large donation was made to Collier County to provide free swim lessons for those in need. If you or anyone on your team or their families are looking to make sure their children can swim, let Diane know and she will get you the information needed. Also, a Chapter email went out explaining this. Thanks to all for making this possible. We are helping so many to learn how to swim! Special thanks to Michele Moser, Sapphire Pools of Florida, for coordinating all of this for the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter!
