Member Letter 2018

Happy New Year from the FS&T Board!

Welcome 2018!  Summer is just a few short months away and we cannot wait to see everyone enjoying themselves at the pool or on the tennis courts.  In 2017 we had a very successful year with new members and we look forward to more new members in 2018.  Thank you for any referrals provided in 2017 and we will continue to have the referral program for 2018.  Details on the referral program can be found here on our website.   We look forward to seeing everyone on opening day, May 26, 2018.  Bring all your friends and family and show them what kind of fun we have at Fairlawn Swim and Tennis.
 
 
CONGRATULATIONS to our newest “Senior” Members! This does not mean they are old! 😉  It means that these members have been paying members for over 20 years!

Family Members:  $731.24 ($685.00 plus sales tax) New Family Members1:  $1,158.24

Single Members:    $384.30 ($360.00 plus sales tax) New Single Members1:  $811.30

Senior Members:   $ 341.60 ($320.00 plus sales tax)

  1. Please note: New Members pay a joining fee of $800.00 which is spread out $400.00 per year over the first two years of membership.

With the Club being a non-profit entity, we as a Board, we are always working to be prudent financial managers.  Annual membership dues cover our day-to-day operating expenses.  All membership dues in excess of actual annual expenses are added to collected initiation dues and reinvested into the Club’s facilities.

 

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

Dues can be paid by credit card through PayPal.  The convenience fee to pay by credit card is 3% of the total payment for any member who pays through PayPal.  This 3% convenience fee will automatically be added by PayPal when a transaction is processed through PayPal.  Therefore, when submitting a payment through PayPal, please enter the payment due per your invoice.  PayPal will calculate and add the 3% due to cover the processing charges.  Being a non-profit entity, we need to be prudent with managing funds while expanding payment options to our members.

 

PAYMENT PLAN

FS&T has discontinued the payment plan.  This decision was due to the administration of payment plans via PayPal which was not easy to manage.  Please keep in mind that invoices have a due date of May 1, 2018.  If you wish to make multiple payments, you can create a payment plan yourself by making periodic payments via check or PayPal.  A monthly statement will be sent to you showing your payment history and current balance due.

 

EARLY PAYMENT DRAWING

FS&T will again have an early payment drawing for 2018.  The incentive drawing will be held on Memorial Day Weekend.  As in years past, there will be a drawing for $250.00 for members who are paid in full by March 15 via PayPal or Check.   All checks must be postmarked no later than 3/15/2018.

 

2018 SEASON

We are excited to say that Club Manager- Elena Gibbons, Assistant Manager- John Nauer and Head Tennis Pro-Alan Walker, will all be returning to the Club for 2018 Season. 

 

2017 SEASON RECAP

  1. Please note: New Members pay a joining fee of $800.00 which is spread out $400.00 per year over the first two years of membership.

As a board, we are always working to be prudent financial managers. In 2016, we were able to hold off on any membership increases.  FS&T had some increases in materials and operational expenses and an unexpected repair expense.  The increase of dues of $35 per membership will increase our revenue (and cash) by approximately $11,000 per year based on membership at the of the 2016 season. This small increase will help fund:

Increasing operating expenses:

  • Payroll expenses have increased over 30% over the last 5 years due to increased hourly wages combined with increased staffing needed to manage the increased membership.
  • Annual maintenance of Hartru tennis surfaces.
  • Security service who visits the FS&T every night to secure the property and lock the gate after closing

Planned capital expenditures

  • Refinishing rear tennis practice wall boards
  • Replacement of railroad ties at the front of tennis courts and next to driveway adjacent to picnic area
  • Repairing and repainting gazebos, guard shack and rear tennis hut
  • New steel entry doors throughout facility
  • Options for driveway overhaul/resurfacing
  • Assessment of fencing along driveway
  • New façade for building exterior walls
  • Lighting update/repair underneath deck
  • New sprinkler heads for tennis courts
  • New chairs and grills, increasing the number on hand in addition to replacing old/broken ones

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

Dues can still be paid by credit card through PayPal.  The Club has change the convenience fee to 3% of the total payment for any member who pays through PayPal.  (It was previously $25 one time convenience fee per year.)  This 3% convenience fee will automatically be added by PayPal when a transaction is processed through PayPal.  Therefore, when submitting a payment through PayPal, please enter the payment due per your invoice.  PayPal will calculate and add the 3% due to cover the processing charges.  Being a non-profit entity, we need to be prudent with managing funds while expanding payment options to our members.

The Club will continue to offer a payment plan via PayPal.  Members need to register with the Club’s accountant, Kelley Brubaker (club@fsandt.com) no later than February 15, 2017.  Payments must start by this date for the program which will entail four equal monthly payments to cover 100% of dues over February, March, April, and May 2017.  Monthly payments are required to be processed through PayPal which will incur a 3% convenience fee.  Once setup, the payments will be automatically processed by PayPal on the 15th of each month for 4 months.

EARLY PAYMENT DRAWING

FS&T will again have an early payment drawing for 2017.  The incentive drawing will be held on Memorial Day Weekend.  As in years past, there will be a drawing for $250.00 or newly added this year is the option to have a designated parking spot for the 2017 season for members who meet these qualifications:

  1. For all members (including new members) paid in full by March 15 via PayPal or Check.   All checks must be postmarked no later than 3/15/2017.
  2. For all members (including new members) enrolled in the payment plan via PayPal with payments starting by 2/15/2017.

2017 SEASON

We are currently interviewing candidates for Club Manager.  We are very happy to say that Assistant Manager- John Nauer and Head Tennis Pro-Alan Walker, will all be returning to the Club for 2017 Season.

2016 Annual Member Meeting Notice

Dear Fairlawn Swim and Tennis Members,

Just a friendly reminder that our annual meeting is scheduled on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the Northwest Ayers Library.

We highly recommend that you attend this meeting as we have several important things to discuss.  We are proposing some changes to the bylaws that must be approved.

We are also proposing a nominal dues increase of $35.00 for the coming year.  We have just completed our third year without an assessment and our sixth year without a dues increase.  We would like to share our rational and reasons why this increase makes sense to the health of our Club.  You are welcome to join the discussion so that we may all have a hand in this important decision.

Additionally, there are four Board positions available and your support is crucial.  Please consider running for a position.  If you would like any information about duties and responsibilities, please contact one of the current members.  If you plan to run, please let us know so that we may have your name on the ballot.

We look forward to seeing you on the October 26th.

Respectfully,

Fairlawn Swim and Tennis Board
