Pool Board President
We joined the pool about 5-6 years ago when our oldest daughter was 2. We compared all the pools in the area and felt DGSRC suites our family the best. We liked that the pool was a members only pool, family orientated, and not overwhelmingly crowded.
Pool Board Treasurer
Pool Board Secretary
I have been swimming and in the water since I was little and have always belonged to a pool. We tried various pools around the area until we landed at Swim and Racquet Club. We love the sense of community and always know that our kids will find friends at the pool - new and old - which is something I think we all take pride in about Downers Grove. I joined the board because I wanted to take be more involved and use my background in interior design to help the pool. We hope members see the positive this coming summer.
I joined the DGSRC Board because I love our club! You can find my children and I with our friends at the pool every day! By getting involved I wanted to be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. This year I hope to increase the communication within the club by introducing a monthly newsletter, increase our presence on social media and schedule more social and fun events for families!
Our family joined the pool 6 years ago and I started playing tennis 20+ years ago. I joined the Board to help grow the pool and, in particular, the tennis program.
I spent my summers growing up at the pool, and participating on swim and dive teams. I always enjoyed having fun with my friends at practice, and the excitement of the meets. The family friendships that I gained at the pool, have carried with me into adulthood. I am looking forward to continuing the positive and friendly atmosphere of the swim team. DGSRC has amazing coaches, and I am excited to work with them, to create great memories for our children, and their families. Fun facts- I am an elementary art teacher, and coach diving at DGS!
Membership Committee / Past Board President
Our family has always enjoyed the DGSRC as long time members. Being a past Board member, I thought that I would be a good resource to the Board for smooth Club operations in the future. Over the past years I have assisted with the "behind the scenes" membership database.
My family has been members of the pool since 2011. We joined simply out of convenience since so close to home, but we quickly realized how family-oriented the Club is as well as some of the great perks like never overcrowded, great tennis instruction, ability to bring in own food and more. I am happy to be a new member of the Board and look forward to great things to come in 2019.
