eNews from The Hills


Dear Members:

We're into our summer routines around the club, and everything's running smoothly. Our camp sessions for kids 5 to 12 are underway and we still have space in these weekly sessions. More information and registration is available on our website. Sign up today!

Friday is the Fourth of July, and we're planning a fun-filled holiday by the pool. We'll provide some live music on the pool deck and the cafe is preparing a special barbeque in addition to the regular menu. No advance reservations are required for the barbeque. I hope you'll join us on the Fourth! (Please note there are no fitness classes on the holiday.)

imgIn our last newsletter, I introduced Jasmine Martinez as The Hills' new tennis instructor. Jasmine's an outstanding student and varsity player at Holy Names University. She's offering a free clinic for youngsters on Saturday, July 17 (details below). This is a free event, and a great way to introduce your kids to tennis.

Finally, I appreciate your cooperation with the club's rules and regulations, especially during this busy summer season. Please remember to complete a guest waiver and check in at the front desk each time you bring friends or relatives to the club. It's also important to realize that your children 21 and over are not included in a family membership. For continuing students up to age 24, we provide a limited membership allowing them to use the club during their school breaks. Please call my office to make arrangements.

I hope your summer is going well and that you can join us on the Fourth!

To your health,
Ernesto Chamorro
