Like many businesses Covid hit SRC hard.
Although we quickly pivoted to offer what we could based on government guidance, SRC’s financial lifeblood of summer memberships and summer swim team income was significantly affected. While we are thankful for the popularity and membership outpouring of support for lap swim, the lap swim program did not make up for the financial impact of a lost summer season. As any home owner knows, what didn’t stop was our little community pool’s need for continued maintenance and improvements … We are trimming trees to retain the view and overhauling SRC’s entire electrical system. In addition, we poured a brand new surface around the pool in the Spring. We have also sourced an engineer who can work on drawing up plans that meet health department guidelines for the new slide installation. This project has proved more difficult than expected, but we aim to get it completed before Summer 2021!
As a reminder SRC is a 501(c)(3) and charitable donations to SRC are allowed as tax deductions by the IRS, and also makes SRC eligible to receive additional “matching funds” for donations made by individuals working for various employers in the area.
