Message from our Founder
The vaccine stage of this pandemic has arrived and as I write this note, there are three vaccines that have been approved by the FDA for use in the US. According to npr.org Covid-19 vaccine tracker, approximately 15% of the US population has been vaccinated and that number looks to rise exponentially over the next 90 days. Phase 1A is behind us and Phase 1B is upon us which means that the majority of our Evolution Team can now be vaccinated. You’ll be happy to know that when surveyed, 85% of our team said that they would be vaccinated if given the opportunity and that’s great news.
The buildout of our new swim center is going well. So far, no delays and that’s great news as well. I have been so much more hands on this time around because like most human beings, I do not like surprises, especially of the construction type. My routine is to be onsite 3 times per week, working directly with the superintendent, identifying and resolving any potential issues before they become bigger issues. So far, so good. We are still on target to open in June 2011 and like I said last week, a one-year delay in a pandemic year is not bad and I’ll take it.
Spring is upon us which means the start of daylights savings. On March 14th, our clocks will spring forward one hour which offers us daylight later into the evenings. Spring also introduces our spring offerings, which include the Spring Swim Team, discounted registrations for summer sports camp, and the opening of some of our seasonal swim lesson sites. It’s a time to celebrate that warmer months are ahead of us and as we start to take a hold of this pandemic, our kids will be able to play, whether it be in the water or on the field.
On a final note, our Founder’s Club is doing exceptionally well and now that our facility has enough for us to do “show and tells”, we are offering weekly visits to our new site via our Open House events on Saturdays, from 9:00-12:00 pm. More information will be coming soon but mark your calendars because every Saturday in March, we will be hosting an open house, for our Founder’s Club members and future members.
I will be in touch soon, stay safe, and have a great March!
