Three Positions, Three Volunteers
The nomination period for the 2017-18 VPCA board closed on 11 August and we are happy to report that we had exactly three nominations. Since there are three open positions, these three individuals will be joining the board next month. Please join the board in welcoming our new board members:
Greg Hutcheson is a new addition to the Venetian Pool Community. He has lived in Decatur for 13 years with his wife and 3 sons, two of which are Pool Sharks. He is currently pursuing his MBA and brings to the table 12 years of experience in the financial industry. His pastimes include crafting cocktails and making his own bitters, smoking something delicious on his Big Green Egg, bird hunting with his spoiled rotten GSP, and now in the summer spending lots of quality family time at the Venetian. He looks forward to serving on the Venetian Board and is committed to being active in the community for many years to come.

Kenny Pillow has been a member of Venetian Pool for five years with wife Mindy and children Jackson and Madelyn. His kids have been teammates on the Poolsharks swim team, went to regionals every year, and even moved on to the finals this past swim year. You might know him as the ever-constant griller at our home swim meets. Mr. Pillow looks forward to continuing the long tradition of fun, swimming, and camaraderie that VCPA had established in our great town of Decatur, GA.
Sharon Weske is a new member of Venetian Pool. She is an Atlanta native and has lived with her family in Decatur for 9 years. She has 2 young kids and loves spending time with them outdoors. Being a part of the Venetian Community has certainly been the highlight of the Weske family summer. Both kids are planning to join the Pool Sharks next season! Sharon enjoys cooking, hiking and has recently picked back up her dusty guitar. She is excited to volunteer her time on the Venetian Board, and looks forward to helping keep the pool a fun and family-friendly environment.
