Dear SHYC Members,
Greetings from the SHYC Juniors! We know this is an unprecedented time and we hope you are all doing well and staying safe. We wanted to take this opportunity to discuss the Juniors program briefly. Juniors range from ages 12-17 and (during normal summers) are invited to a variety of fun events which take place most Tuesday evenings throughout the summer. Any member who turns 12 before Labor Day is considered a Junior Member of the Club that summer. At this time the Juniors events will remain on hold until we get a better sense of the social distancing requirements during the different phases of reopening. As soon as we know more, we will keep the Juniors posted about the fun events that typically take place such as the Juniors Pool Party, Game Nights on the grass and the JMUT tennis night. We are hopeful that with social distancing measures we can still hold Juniors events in some format but again, we will be in a 'wait and see' planning status for now and will continue to discuss ideas and options.
As many of you know, the Juniors program coordinates ordering and selling gear for the Pro Shop and those sales help support the Juniors program. Since the SHYC has been closed for now, we have not officially opened the Pro Shop. However, we did put in a limited order for some cool gear to kick off the summer that we plan to sell 'virtually' through emails and the SHYC Facebook page (we are exploring no contact payment and pick-up options). These items include SHYC branded coolers, Yetis, koozies, sunglasses, and a very limited number of Patagonia Better Sweater pullover 1⁄4 zips. We plan to order more of the branded items we have already picked out (and we can take pre-orders if this first batch of items sells out) so get ready to gear up! We will be posting and emailing members when the first order is in and ready to be sold.
If you have any questions about the Juniors program please do not hesitate to reach out! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My mother Jen Palmer and I will be leading the initial sales effort for the Pro Shop gear and then the Junior Council will be helping with the Pro Shop and hopefully events throughout the summer.
