The Almonte Tennis Club has a New Executive Committee. I would like to congratulate everyone on their election and thank them for volunteering to help govern the Club. Please join me in welcoming the new team and expressing the Club’s appreciation for their upcoming service.
Our team is already hard at work to get the Courts open for the season and looking forward to an active and enjoyable season. Registrations are being accepted effective Saturday April 16th, 2022.
Some of you may have noticed that the Courts incurred some damage over the winter as a result of a fallen light. Rest assured that the Town of Mississippi Mills is making all the necessary repairs as quickly as possible. In the meantime, the Courts remain closed. Opening day will not be far off so please be patient while we ensure the Courts are ready and safe for play.
Please take a moment to see who will be responsible for the operation of the Club. We hope to get to know all our members and hope you get to know us too.
Liz Rootham, President
Luke Potvin, Vice President
Elaine Shea, Executive Assistant
Karin Crawford, Treasurer
Ralph Holm, Membership Coordinator
Rob Abramenko, Program Coordinator
Carolyn Klickermann, Social Coordinator
JP Thonney, Property Manager
Finally, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks, on behalf of the New Executive Committee and all of the Club Members, to every one of the former Executive Committee. They had a very tough job given the circumstances of the last couple of years and worked tremendously hard to give all members the opportunity to enjoy tennis. So I raise my hat to: Bill Adams, former President and Webmaster; Bruce Paulauskas, former Vice President; Barb Fraser, former Executive Assistant; Derek Rafuse, former and longstanding Treasurer; Cecilia Kelly, former Membership Coordinator; Karl Krech, former Property Manager; Terry Dyer-Adams, former Social Coordinator; Paul Scissons, former past President; and posthumously to Hyacinh Chatterton, former Program Coordinator. You never really understand how much these volunteers have done for the Club until you take on their roles.
