President’s Message
Another pool season is over and although we had one of the coldest summer in the last 100 years, I hope everyone had a chance to spend a great deal of time at the pool this season. Fall is now here and the pool has been drained. While it will be many months before the pool opens again, the board members still perform work year round. I’d like to take this time to thank the 2008-2009 board for a job well done. While it might not be obvious to all the members, the pool board works very hard to keep the pool running and successful and, this board has been no exception. A special thanks goes out to “retiring” board members Marlene Biehl, Paul Gaetano, Sandy Rickert and Ralph Caccavale for their years of dedication to the DSRC. As one door closes another door opens, the DSRC will be electing new board members at our Annual Meeting on October 28 th , 2009. The following pool members have expressed an interest in joining the 2009-2010 pool board: Bill Carpenter, Caroline Hochstedt, Tom Belczak (2nd term), Mike Sander and Jim Valenti. I encourage all pool members to attend our annual meeting so that you can vote for the new board members, hear the committees end of the year reports and, express any comments or suggestions regarding the future direction of your pool. This meeting is open to all members of the DSRC. Even though the pool is closed, the social committee and the rental committees are working year round. The Social Committee has planned its Annual Halloween Costume Party for Friday, October 23, 2009. The Clubhouse is available for rental throughout the year. Why not plan your Holiday gathering at the DSRC? Good dates go fast. Anyone interested in renting the clubhouse should contact the rental committee or send us an email at Lastly, I want to wish all our members a safe and enjoyable off season and look forward to seeing everyone at the Clubhouse during our Fall, Winter and Spring functions and … GO BEARS!

Pool & Grounds
As the sun sets on the 2009 season, we would like to take this opportunity to send out a BIG DSRC THANK YOU to our Pool Management and Lifeguards. They have done an outstanding job keeping the membership safe and comfortable this year. Now that the pool is closed for the season, our jobs will still continue as we prepare the pool for the winter months. Thanks to the membership for following all of the rules and helping to keep our pool clean. We know it is not always easy but it makes our pool a safer place for everyone to enjoy. We also will winterize the pool and the landscaping around the pool. Yes, we have much to do before the snow falls!!!! We hope you had an enjoyable summer!
