Dear Lakeshore members and friends,
We hope you and your families are well and healthy during this challenging time. As you can expect, COVID-19 has raised a lot of questions about the 2020 swim season at Lakeshore Swimming Pool Association (LSPA) – and we still do not know the answers yet. As always, LSPA will follow the advice of the KFL&A Health Unit and we will continue to look to them for direction in the months ahead.
The LSPA Board of Directors are reaching out to our membership to keep you up to date on what we have been doing to ensure the survival of Lakeshore during this period of economic upheaval and uncertainty. Our first response has been to seek out all possible programs to keep LSPA afloat in the face of the pandemic, including obtaining a 6-month mortgage deferral on the principle owing and a government loan through the Canada Emergency Business Account. We will continue to explore government support packages as they are announced.
Additionally, we are making plans to deal with the consequences if Lakeshore is not able to open this summer. Earlier this week, we contacted our PAD (Pre-Authorized Debit) members - those who have already paid for the 2020 swim season - and asked them to allow us to rollover their 2020 payments to the 2021 season, if need be. If we do have an abbreviated swimming season, we will prorate them and any other paid members what they have already paid as appropriate. The monthly payments from the PAD have allowed us to pay toward the LSPA mortgage that we assumed in 2015 to fund the significant renovations to the pool.
The outcome of our 2020 swim season will most likely be determined in the next several weeks. Whether we can open or not, Lakeshore still has several fixed expenses, including our mortgage, taxes, and utilities. While we are hopeful that you will be enjoying Lakeshore Pool this summer, the Board felt the need to connect with our members and advise you of the issues facing us. If we are unable to open, we will be looking to our members for financial support through donations.
As we enter our 49th year in this uncertain time, Lakeshore Pool remains a happy and vibrant place for family and friends. As members, you know that LSPA is more than just a pool - it is a place where everyone can feel part of a community - where parents, kids, adults, and seniors can come together in a safe and welcoming environment.
As we wait for more clarity about the months ahead, we welcome your questions or comments. Please feel free to email them to email@example.com
