A huge round of applause for our 3rd Annual Casino Night & Silent Auction that took place on April 25! Title Sponsor: Baystone Tile.  DJ Sponsor: Unicel.  Hors d’oeuvres Sponsor: Gorman Company, Pentair and Red Rhino Leak Detection.  Bar Sponsor: SCP. Blackjack Sponsors: Lo-Chlor, StoneHardscapes, AquaCal and HornerXpress.  Game Table Sponsors:  Vak Pak and Zodiac. Without all of your help, this event wouldn’t have been as successful as it was. The funds raised at this event will go toward great causes such as the YMCA Safety Around the Water program, The Gift of Swimming and the Team Kareem Foundation.
The FSPA state office will be hosting a state Board of Directors Meeting at Margaritaville Resort Orlando on June 7-8.  We encourage all members to attend and get a behind-the-scenes look at what the association does for you and your business.  If you have to choose between the two dates, we encourage you to attend on Friday, June 7.  We look forward to seeing you there.
Save the date for July 19.  The Chapter will be hosting a Member Appreciation Night at the Drive Shack at 6:30 p.m.  Invite your employees, family and friends for a fun night out with the pool industry!  The cost of $25 per member includes three hours of golf, dinner, unlimited soft drinks, two drink tickets and a cash bar. The cost is $50 for non-members.  Remember that all employees of a member company are members of the FSPA!
Mix and mingle.  Have a canapé and a cocktail with your local representative on Tuesday, August 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the Citrus Club.  Please dress accordingly, jacket and slacks please.  No shorts, tennis shoes or flip flops.
Our next Board meeting, which all members are encouraged to attend, will be Wednesday, June 12 at noon at All Pool Service and Supply.
Your 2019 Board of Directors are working on exciting and educational events. Please let us hear from you with any suggestions for speakers or events. If you haven’t already, please like our Facebook page at FSPA Central Florida Chapter to keep up with upcoming events and meetings.
