Dear Lake Saginaw Member:
We have two important dates and additional information to announce.
The beach will officially open on Wednesday, June 24th. Lifeguards will be on duty starting June 24th. We will follow up with additional guidelines (health, state, and federal mandates) prior to the official opening so there will be no confusion as to what can and cannot be done. Look for additional emails soon.
Our beach clean up and annual meeting will be held on Saturday, June 13th. The beach clean up will begin at 9am, and the annual meeting will promptly start at 12 noon. For the beach clean up please bring gloves. We’ll be doing general clean up and organization.
For the annual meeting we will be electing officers and Trustees for the Sparta Hills Beach Club board. The Trustees make all decisions for the beach club.
A number of members have expressed interest in becoming a Trustee and we look forward to some new ideas and energy. In order to become a Trustee (or to vote for Trustees) you must be a reservation member in good standing (i.e. all your fees are paid including active membership fees. This is a by-law rule.)
We hope those that would look to become a Trustee would do so to bring new ideas, activities, and accomplishments that will benefit the entire community. If you are looking to join to enhance a personal agenda, complain without providing solutions, or just as a way to socialize, then this position is probably not for you.
Trustees receive no pay, no incentives, and no special treatment – it is a volunteer position. While it is not a difficult job, it does involve interacting with members, providing solutions to problems, and following through with appropriate action for the good of the lake community.
I know there are a number of you that would be great for the beach club as a Trustee. Please feel free to reply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are considering running for a Trustee position.
In additional news, I will no longer be the beach club President, nor will I be a Trustee. I believe it’s time for some new ideas and passion to not only maintain all the great things we’ve accomplished over these past years, but to make things even better. Our Secretary, Melissa Do, will also be stepping down.
I want to thank all of you for your support, and look forward to seeing what you can accomplish moving forward.
John Scherr, President
