Just like I remember college to be, our College then Beers
night was educational and super fun! Thank you Kyle Marshall, Zodiac,
for treating us all to a night out!
Thank you to those who attended the FSPA state Board of
Directors meeting held September 20-21 in Sarasota. It was encouraging to
see new faces. I’m sure it was an eye-opener to listen in to see what the FSPA
does for you and your business in the pool industry. Following the meetings on
Friday, many pool professionals met at Oleary’s Tiki Bar & Grill to unwind
and take in what was discussed earlier in the day.
The Chapter was happy to present $1,500 to the FSPA
Scholarship Program at the last FSPA state Board meeting. With that, we are
thrilled that some of our local members and their employee’s college-age
dependents took advantage of such an amazing program. We would like to
congratulate the following recipients: Isabelle Starner, daughter of Todd
Starner of Starner Brothers Pools; Dakota Egglefield, daughter of Scott
Egglefield of Mirasol FAFCO Solar; and Callie Gaetano, daughter of Jayne
Gaetano of Coast to Coast Pools, on receiving a 2019 merit
scholarship, which was matched by the Bill Kent Family Foundation. We wish you
the best of luck with your academic pursuits!
