C R Y D E R P O I N T 6 AUGUST Pool Party 2016: A Hit Without a Miss! The gang was all there! Members of the QOL Committee, helpers, friends and families Photos by Dorene Finnegan How do you put together a community party in less than six weeks? Just ask the Quality of Life Committee! Dorene Finnegan and Eileen Annechino, who is Board Liaison to the Committee, spearheaded the group’s efforts to hold a pool party for pool members and their guests, the first such event at Cryder Point in over five years. It was a celebration of sorts, as this is the first season of the “new and improved” Cryder Point pool. Our pool has always been a special place, but with an expanded deck and tremendously improved water views, it’s even more spectacular than it ever was. Plans for the party moved fast. It would be held on a Saturday (July 23) and go from 6pm to 11pm. There would be a DJ, and soft drinks would be provided. It was decided that this would be a party just for grown-ups (a children’s party is in the works for later this summer), and that all Cryder Point residents could attend as a pool member’s guest. Sounds simple, but as they say, the devil’s in the details, probably the most vexing of which was estimating the number of attendees.

So how m u c h soda do you buy? How many bags of ice do you need? Would extra tables need to be rented? Turns out those extra tables were indeed needed as tickets sold quickly. All told nearly 130 people joined the bash, more than anticipated. But before the gate could open to welcome folks in, there was prep to do. The pool was closed at 4pm to allow time to get everything set up. Dorene wanted to make sure that Bill Newell and the staff were recognized for getting it all together. Everybody dance now!
