February 10, 2017

Dear Members;
The 2017 pool season will be here before you know it. I want to share some information regarding our facility. The pool was built in 1976 by a small group of visionary Country Estates property owners who saw the opportunity to create an outdoor recreation facility that could be enjoyed, not only by the residents of Country Estates, but families outside of our subdivision, as well. Now, over 40 years later, we are proud of the summer tradition our facility has become for our membership. Our heritage was cultivated by Coach Elston Golson, who managed our facility for over 15 years.
Today, our primary goal is to offer swimming lessons to any child in our area, regardless of membership, so they become comfortable with water while developing proficient swimming and water safety skills. The CERA Board has elected to keep membership fees at the same level as last year, but has
issued a challenge to every member to bring in a new member to the association in 2017. We are faced with some challenging maintenance issues, primarily re-surfacing our tennis courts ($10K) and re-plastering our pool ($40K). The best way to pay for these improvements is through membership expansion, otherwise the alternative will have to be assessed through membership fee increases, which nobody wants to see.
We are pleased to announce Kathi Keyes will be our pool manager again for the 2017 season. We have big plans this year for a variety of family oriented events for the membership to enjoy. Please visit the pool web site at www.cerapool.org for updates on dates and times. We welcome any money making ideas that will help us achieve our goals and we look forward to meeting the new member you bring in this year.
Our pool work day is scheduled for April 15 and we could use your help in getting our facility ready for
opening day.

A Word about Coach Golson
We lost a great man who had an impact on Country Estates Pool like no other person ever has..... Coach Elston Golson !
I am proud that we were able to dedicate our park to him, that event meant a great deal to him and his family at the dedication ceremonies. Let us all carry
on those traditions and say "thank you Coach".
