The LTA had a busy fall with USTA play, tournaments and ‘Get Pinked’, our fundraiser. On December 9th, we had our last meeting for 2021. We elected Lynn Watts to be Vice President. She joins the other officers: Lee Vermeulen, President, Diane Rohan, Secretary, and Toni Joyner, Treasurer. Other business was Diane Rohan and Linda Burek presenting a $3,293 check to Marie Neilson from the money raised by ‘Get Pinked’. Diane and Lin-da put on a very successful event that was enjoyed by both tennis and pickleball players. Thank you to both of you. ‘Get Pinked’ money stays local and is used to help with cancer detecting and treating.

We also welcomed three new members: Marie Neilson, Jackie Obmann, and Jennifer Zasada. Kevin and Whitney were thanked for all they have done for us this year.

Now that we are in the winter months, things will slow down, and I hope we have some nice weather to get some play in. It is also the time of year that we are planning for the busy Spring. USTA will start up, there will be tournaments, and ‘Swing into Spring’ fundraiser for our Scholarship fund. We are hoping for a more normal year and one better than 2021.

Happy Healthy New Year to all.

Lee Vermeulen
