Hello GLCC Members,

I would just like to say how excited I am to start back on the beach at the end of the month! I had such a great time last summer with all of the kid’s camp kids and members. I am glad to be starting another summer as the beachfront director and hope to see everyone for another season. This one will be better than the last and hopefully with just as many warm sunny days. We will be running more swim lesson options for everyone so if you have any questions on that feel free to contact me through email.

The swim lessons will have the same general format that they did last year but more of my staff is trained and I would like to run more sections so please look into that program.

As far as staff goes, there will be some familiar faces. Eric will return as the assistant to the beach. He is finishing his first year at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and is really excited to spend time with the members. We will also have Audrey, Megan and Mariah returning along with some new staff members.

As for me, this year was wonderful. I just finished my junior year at Western Michigan University. I’m studying secondary education mathematics and health. If all goes according to plan, I should graduate in the winter of 2014. During the school year I spend most of my time being the President of the swim club and doing private swim lessons for kids at Plainwell Schools.

On that note, I’m looking forward to seeing everyone Memorial Day!
