Happy New Year Venetian Members!
This is the first eSplash of 2016 and we hope it finds our members healthy and happy. The days are getting longer and even though it’s rather chilly outside, the pool will re-open in just a few short months!
2016 Membership Discount Information
If you qualify for a Senior Membership discount this year (one member age 62 as of Jan. 1, 2016), please send proof of age (copy of a government-issued ID, e.g., driver’s license, passport) to Venetian Pools Community Assoc., Inc, P.O. Box 3151, Decatur GA 30030; OR email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 25, 2016. If you sent this in last year, you do NOT need to do so again. The discount will be automatically applied.
If you now qualify for the Long Term discount (continuous membership for 20 years or more), it will be automatically applied since the year you joined is in our records, so you do not need to contact us.
Requests for a Senior discount must be received by Jan. 25, 2016 in order to be processed for the upcoming season. Again, if you were in either category last year, you do not need to request either status.
Only one discount per membership will apply; if you are both Senior and Long-Term, you will be given the greater discount.
Dues Statements Should Arrive in the Mail by 6 February
A few key dates related to your 2016 membership are coming up. You should be receiving your dues statements in the mail by Saturday, February 6th. Note: The board voted to leave both dues and initiation fees the same as last year’s.
If you have moved you must notify us of your new address; and if you need to change or add emails on our distribution list, you may email email@example.com with that information.
Dues must be postmarked by March 1 to avoid a $100 late fee. Any dues received after a postmark date of March 15 will be considered lapsed, and the membership will be offered to the waitlist applicants. We are in the position of having a wait list of possibly six years—so don’t miss those deadlines!
Save the Date! February 9th from 6-8 for Venetian’s first Business Mixer
Decatur CoWorks has graciously volunteered their space for us to have our first ever business mixer! Come and mingle with fellow Venetian members and share what you do. Many of us would use goods/services of another member if we knew what they offered. Feel free to bring a friend. Door prizes, munchies, and beverages sponsored by LiteSheet, maker of commercial and Industrial LED Lighting.
Since we are unsure of attendance, If you could please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org (but even if you forget to RSVP, don’t let that stop you from coming if you decide to attend!)
Decatur CoWorks’ address is 708 Church St, Decatur, GA 30030
Decatur CoWorks is shared workspace where you’ll find all the office amenities you need in a welcoming atmosphere that encourages creativity, collaboration, and most of all – productivity.
Thank you LiteSheet and Decatur CoWorks for your sponsorship.
Did you know?...that Venetian Pools has a closed group on FaceBook? It’s a great way to keep up with current events at the pool. A member can join the Venetian Pools FB closed group either by being invited by another member or “ask” on FB to be added to the Venetian Pools group.

Opening Day is Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 2-9 PM! It’ll be here before you know it!
