Thank you to all who attended our Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Aqua Comfort Water Group in Deland. Members and guests were able to tour the manufacturing plant and see how their heaters are made right in Volusia County. Thank you to our volunteer resident Keith Quint, Gorman Company, for being an annual sponsor and supporting the Chapter this month.

The Chapter is gearing up for Casino Night on December 14. New location! New date! Same great benefit! Larry Drumb, Pool Renovations by Larry, is our Casino Night chair once again and is excited to announce that a new location has been chosen. Thursday, December 14 from
6:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. we will be at The Daytona, Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott, 1870 Victory Circle, Daytona Beach.

Tickets will be $100 or six tickets for $500 and sponsorships are available. We also combined our annual auction with the night of the event, so please help us with items. We have plenty of time so please let us know of your support now so we can make this the biggest fundraiser of the year for our education and swim lesson contributions! Thank you so much to our Title Sponsors: HornerXpress, Lo-Chlor and AquaCal; Bar Sponsors: East Coast Pools & Spas and Fluidra; Craps Table Sponsor: Vak Pak; DJ Sponsor: Cypress Creek Outdoors; and Black Jack Sponsors: Aqua Comfort Water Group.

We are looking for food sponsors, gaming sponsors and VIP After Party support. Contact Diane or Larry for more details. We are also collecting auction items. Help us make this year’s event successful!

If you are booking a hotel for the night, be sure to let them know you are with the FSPA for the group rate of $161/night plus $20 destination fee at The Daytona. The rate cutoff is November 14.

Remember to send your Chapter news in to Diane for all to read your business news and exciting happenings.
