Fiesta Night 2017

FIESTA NIGHT! is tonight! What you should know

When we said this was the party of the season, we weren’t kidding!

Looks like tonight’s FIESTA will have a tremendous turnout! We’ll do our best to make sure everyone is fed on time and able to enjoy themselves, but we thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility. And in turn, please remember to thank the volunteers who are helping tonight. Without them, none of this would be possible!

Here are some important things you need to know:
* We have just enough space for everyone who has registered, but please share your table so everyone has a place to eat.
* Check in when you arrive and get a wrist band. We will call people up in groups when it is time to eat. Each ticket holder needs a wrist band.
* Bar opens at 5 p.m. Bring CASH as we will have a FULL BAR selling beer, wine, spirits and margaritas. Water, soda and juice is free.
* We’ll start calling names for dinner at 6 p.m. Please wait for your group to be called.
* Salsa (food) contest is scheduled for 6 p.m.
* Salsa (dance) lessons should be around 7:15 p.m.
* Dance party kicks off around 8 p.m.

Results are in! The new mural design is…

Through an online vote and dozens of votes being cast during the Fourth of July at the pool, the membership has a clear winner after a close vote. The Board has approved the winning design, and on behalf of the Rock Creek Pool Board we’d like to thank Saige Gootman for submitting the winning design.

(Full disclosure: Saige’s father, Marek, is a Board member and fully recused* himself from both the vote and the Board’s consideration and approval of the winning design.)

For her efforts, Saige will receive $100 and the “opportunity” the paint the mural on the parking lot wall.

We very much want to thank each of the artists for taking time to design thoughtful, artistic, and very different designs. We hope you had fun! We sure did! Congrats again, Saige!


(* Marek did have some very nice things to say about the other entries while not commenting at all on his daugher’s.  Board members were not informed of the artists’ identities.)
