Annual Meeting Follow Up

Dear Friends,

Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual Meeting on Saturday. I apologize to our Zoom attendees who could not hear all the speakers. Not only is conducting a “hybrid” meeting difficult in itself, but we had prepared to hold it in another building at the church, and only found out at the last minute that we had been moved to the sanctuary. We’re grateful to everyone who “hung-in” and made the meeting a success.

The main thrust of the meeting was the state of the pool, and the election of officers for 2022-24. 

Considering the difficulties of the past few years, our pool is strong in facilities, finances, and membership. A new roof was installed on our building, among other improvements; we have solid balances in all of our accounts; and we are fully subscribed with 120 members and about 15 on the waiting list.  (See slide presentation for full details.) 

The main action was the election of Board officers for 2022: Web Newbold, President; Kim De Alba as Facilities Maintenance Coordinator; and Denise Senft, Vice President. The term for Vice President is being reconfigured to allow staggering of the terms for president and vice president; thus, Denise was elected for one year only, with the election of vice president for a regular term to be held next year. The names, responsibilities, and contact information for all Board members can be found via “Contact Agua Linda Officers” on the Members’ Only web site tab. (The site will be updated soon.)

Other news:  

Facilities Engineer Brian Sowers was recognized by a resolution of appreciation from the Board for his many hours of work on projects this winter–the new roof, rebuilding the solar heating units, and new wiring for the entry gate locks among other tasks. 

The Board decided that we would continue with the regular guest policy, and that pool parties could again be held. The Rules and Regulations provide detailed guidelines.

Hoping to see everyone at the pool,


Opening Day: April 16

A reminder that the 2022 Agua Linda Swimming season will start on April 16, 2022. Until then, the pool remains closed. Also, this year the work party to set-up the pool for the season is on Saturday, April 9, 2022; contact Kim (Facilities Maintenance officer), Carly (Groundskeeper), or Brian (Facilities Engineer) to find out what projects need help. Gate Guard Sign-ups are available.

Annual Meeting!

Dear Agua Linda Members,

I hope everyone is well and looking forward to a new swim season. Next Saturday, March 19, is our Annual Members Meeting, where we do the business of the Corporation and learn about what to expect in 2022. [Continued on the Members Only page]

President’s Letter

Dear Agua Linda Members,

Welcome to a new year at the Pool! We hope everyone is doing well in this difficult time and looking forward to an enjoyable summer of pool activities. The situation surrounding COVID-19 mitigation in Alameda County is rapidly changing, and we do not know what it will be for either the Annual Members’ Meeting in March or the Pool’s season opening in April. Agua Linda will continue to follow state and county guidance and recommendations, as nearly as we can interpret them. [Letter is continued in the Members Only section].
