Clean-up Done!

Thanks to all of our members who volunteered their time or paid the cleanup fee.

Huge thanks for all of the member volunteers that came to the clean-up days this Spring. You worked so hard to make our community pool look great and get it ready for the season.

Thanks also for the members who paid the clean-up fee. We put your money to good use by hiring a crew to remove leaves from the pool area and also cleaned up the tennis court grounds. This year we also built a new raised sandbox and fixed the sand wasp problem in the playground area and the sand volleyball court.

Thanks also to Daisy/Brownie Troop 120 for helping with planting the front flower bed by the front desk. It looks beautiful!.

 

Thursday Nights NSSC is the place to be!

Beginning June 1, come by and eat dinner with us. The Getsey Family will be doing the first Master Grill night. You can purchase hot dogs or hamburgers that are cooked to order at the Snack Shack. Bring your sides and drinks or complete your meal with our Snack Shack items (like Easy Mac, carrots and hummus, or chips).

We are still in need of families to help make this successful. Please consider signing up to cook one night--when you do, your family eats for FREE! We will provide everything you need, you just show up and grill.

Choose a Thursday night that works for your family here: http://www.signupgenius.com/ go/10c0b4ca9af2fa6fe3-thursday

Then join us starting at 7:00 for our first Raft Night of the season.  Bring a flotation device (no bigger than 4'x4') and relax under the stars.

Front Desk Manager Needed

We are looking for an adult volunteer to work with teen staff and teen front desk supervisor. The latter handles the scheduling. We need a ‘mom’ or ‘dad’ that would help support the front desk reception area and make sure things run smoothly.

 

You could:

·         Help train the front desk staff (greeting patrons and guests, answering phone, duties—we would support and give you info about this)

·         Help update the front desk white erase info board

·         Help set up the front desk area—it needs to be better organized and run more smoothly

·         Help the scheduling supervisor with difficult situations with the staff—showing up late, not getting a sub, etc.

·         Reminders to fill out pay forms and pick up checks

 

For more info or questions, please contact Dana at danacibulski@cox.net

NS-SC Pool Renovation Project

   Winter 2016 -- NS-SC.org -- North Springfield Swim Club (NSSC) Project Renovation Update -- February 2016


After more than 50 years, our community swim club is going through a major renovation. Built in 1957 and one of the first original 5 community pools built in Northern Virginia, NSSC is finally having a face lift. As of January 1, demolition has taken place, dumpsters are in place, and roof trusses delivered! Mid-February, a roof will be placed over the entire bath house—previously it was “open-air” in keeping with the 1950’s style. Completely new, updated bath and changing rooms will be built and all areas will finally meet the ADA, handicapped accessible design requirements, that didn’t even exist when the original bath house was built. The construction is to be completed by opening day for the summer 2016 season.

The pool’s Board of Directors and the Renovation Committee, headed by Robert Sweeney (previous President), Kathy and Mike Dannholz, has been working tirelessly (and on a volunteer basis!) over the past several years, planning, getting funding in place, and preparing the grounds for this historic event. From several area businesses, 2 local North Springfield residents were selected to lead the project. Shamual Choudhury (Easton Drive) of Moore Architects is the lead architect and Steve Bowes (Atlee Place) of Phoenix Home Services, is the lead contractor.

Walk over to the site, at the intersection of Leesville Blvd. and Earlehurst Street, to check out the progress over the next several weeks. Updated photos will be added to the pool website during the spring as well:  ns-sc.org. Yes, neighbors this is really happening!

If you have any questions, contact Dana Cibulski, President, Board of Directors, NSSC <danacibulski@cox.net>
