PickeringMSC General Meeting Wednesday October 12, 2022

Hello Fellow Swimmers, 

   We hope that the start of this year’s swim season has been a great one for you so far! Membership has grown to 40 members with many joining for the first time.  We hope to continue to grow our membership, there is room for more swimmers.  At a time when clubs & organizations have struggled to continue in this post-lockdown world, we are so grateful for your involvement, presence and support.  Our goal is to have a sustainable membership to support an active and successful swim program that is fun, provides fitness and value.

Please join us for our PMSC General Meeting on Wednesday, October 12th at 7:00pm at the Lone Star Texas Grill at 705 Kingston Rd in Pickering. We will have our own room in the back of the restaurant for us to conduct our “official swim club business” as well as have some time socializing over a bite & a beverage. We need your involvement to continue to grow the Club.

Our agenda for that evening will give us a chance to meet our current coaches and executive, learn about the club and its’ history, and discuss the club’s vision going forward.  Learn and contribute your interests about opportunities for involvement in the club, potential swim meets, future social gatherings, swim schedules, and other.

We are currently engaged and seeking membership in building a participatory and active executive. Learn about the executive positions that are available and consider how you would like to shape the evolving future of the Club.

Given that so much has changed within the club and with masters swimming in general, we hope to see everyone come out to this meeting to keep up-to-date. The success of any organization depends a great deal on an active membership, and we look forward to seeing you AND hearing from you on October 12th!  You are welcome to bring friends and family.

Please RSVP for this important event, it would be helpful to know the number of people attending.  Watch for a meeting invite for the PMSC General Meeting in the next few days.
