1. President's Report
Virginia has continued to meet with SSS to co-ordinate fireworks sale and staffing and to secure the joint checking account.

Patty Berg, our State Congresswoman, visited Ives Pool to present us with a new California flag. She asked many excellent questions of how the non-profit organization ran the pool, and was very interested in the solar panel usage. It has been about a year since Ricardo began pursuing a new flag via Sacramento and it turned out to be a very nice experience.

Virginia and Ricardo met with heads of El Molino and Analy High Schools to discuss the use fees for their swimmers. Ricardo had a very well presented breakdown of their use fees compared to other High Schools in the area for them to see . A follow up meeting to set the new fees will happen in August.
