Annual Meeting Update: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Happy New Year Members!

We hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year.  We at Huntley Hills Swim and Tennis Club reflect fondly on the 2015 season and look forward to our bright and exciting future.

HHSTC requests your presence at our annual Meeting of the Members Sunday, January 31st at 5 PM in the clubhouse as we have an exciting important announcement.  The hard work and dedication of the past decade has presented our club with an opportunity to modernize and upgrade our facility.  A plan is in place and our club is financially secure.

In order to build a new facility, the HHSTC will need to secure a long term loan.  This is a right exclusively reserved to the members of this club.  The Board of Directors is seeking your approval in obtaining the necessary funding.  Building concept plans will be presented during the meeting along with budget information and detailed financial reports with multi-year forecasts.  Our club has spent many years preparing for this moment and the Board of Directors is excited to present a scenario that will enhance everyone's experience within our club and community.

Per our club bylaws, only Huntley Hills residents are eligible to vote; however, we encourage all members to attend. We ask that Huntley Hills residents consider this a mandatory meeting so that a quorum may be obtained.  Upon completion of the presentation, and assuming a quorum is present, we will proceed to a brief Q & A session followed by voting procedures. Each household is eligible to cast a single vote.  For example, a husband and wife may attend but only one single vote may be submitted from that household.  Children are welcome, but seating is limited with plenty of standing room

To RSVP please click this link.  Dinner and refreshments will be provided so your RSVP is needed for a final head count.  We cannot stress enough the importance of your attendance at this exciting meeting and we look forward to seeing you there.

Should you have any questions in advance of the meeting, please feel free to contact me at ryantracy0123@gmail.com.  


Thank you,

2015 End of Season Update!

Hi Members,

2015 has proven to be a great year for our club and we are happy you were a part of it!  The closing of the pool always creates a sense of melancholy, but we have so much to look forward to.

This year the club was able to receive significant upgrades that every member clearly enjoyed.  New pool plaster, upgrades in the pump room, and new shade cabanas provided a noticeably cleaner pool experience. Add to that a professional cleaning services and an excellent group of lifeguards and we had the makings of a near perfect year. 

Halloween

Be sure to join us for our annual Halloween Spooktacular.  The holiday falls on a Saturday this year which is absolutely perfect.  We will perform our usual festivities and kick off Huntley Hills trick or treating in style. From young kids' graveyard hunts to pinatas, we serve up a good time for all to enjoy.  Lots of tricks and treats to be had!  More details to follow.

New Clubhouse

We have been mentioning for quite some time the desire to upgrade our clubhouse and immediately surround areas.  Great progress has been made and we are pleased to announce that we will be presenting plans to the general membership in the next few months.  We have hired a talented, local architectural firm and detailed plans are being drawn up as we speak.  We have set a goal of September 2016 to begin the rebuild process and the club will require input from all voting members throughout this off season.  Please watch your inbox for meeting notifications and voting requirements.

Thank you!...

For your continued support of one of our neighborhood gem's.  The HHSTC has an amazing group of members that continue to build an enjoyable experience for so many individuals, couples, and families.  It is truly an amazing experience!

A very talented and dedicated group of volunteers work very hard to provide the best possible experience for our members and support a strong Huntley Hills amenity.  I would like to personally thank each and every board member for your amazing talents and selfless dedication to our club over the years.  We truly are in good hands as we prepare the Huntley Hills Swim and Tennis Club for the next 60 years.  There is also a select group of families lending their professional expertise to better our club.  You know who you are and we thank you kindly!


If you have any comments regarding the 2015 season or suggestions for the 2016 season, please feel free to replay to this email or contact one of our board of directors.  We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2016.  Have a great and safe holiday season.

Thank you,

Ryan Tracy
