What an auction! Raising over $10,000, we are thrilled with how fun this year's auction turned out. Our first year was the only other year we raised more than $10,000 – so thank you so much to all. With a new variety of items that weren't all in the pool industry, we were able to attract more members and guests to come out and bid. Thanks so much to this year's emcee Dennis Brooks, Cypress Creek Outdoors, who did an amazing job, and to all who bid and donated! Thank you very much to Candice Lucas, Lo-Chlor, for chairing this fundraiser!

The next Chapter Meeting is Tuesday, August 9 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Houligan’s off of International Speedway! As always, future members’ dinners are on us so you can check out the Chapter. We do not have a select menu – you simply order and pay on your own so there is no cost to enter these meetings. Lo-Chlor will be our sponsor so please come support Candice Lucas and her team for this informative meeting about chemistry. Another great meeting to invite your employees to learn the latest and greatest from Lo-Chlor!

We are looking for new committee and Board members for the events coming up this year still like the Golf Tournament (10/28) and the Holiday Casino Party (12/13 or TBD) and for the 2023 Board year. If interested, please let Diane know.

Let your employees and other members know that Tuesday, September 13 at our Chapter Meeting, Dallas Thiessen, FSPA Sr. Director of Government Affairs, will teach a CE course - FBC Advanced Module: 2020 Swimming Pool Updates (CILB course #0613859, meets Advanced requirement, 1 hr., FPSA d/b/a FSPA providership #0000917). The meeting time and location will be the same. Please save the date and plan on being there to learn more. Non-members pay $25 for this class. More details to come in a flyer in the Chapter News e-mail.

Because we will host our Annual Golf Tournament on October 28 at Halifax Plantation, we won't have a Chapter meeting that month. Please update your calendars and save the date for this year's Tournament! Thank you to Keith Quint and Kerry Tait for chairing this fundraiser! Sponsorship and team registration will be sent to Chapter members and supporters soon.

All meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. located at Houligans, 1725 W International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, unless otherwise stated. Dinner cost is $30 for future members. Please be sure to bring a guest! Guests are welcome to attend two meetings prior to joining. Your Board has decided to go with a hybrid approach to this year's meetings and events. If you want to sponsor or volunteer for 2023, please let Di know!

November 8 is a Chapter Meeting sponsored by Jack’s Magic and December 13
or TBD will be a Holiday Party/Casino Night.  Thank you to Larry Drumb and Holly Waldhauer for chairing this fundraiser!
