As 2021 comes to a close, we want to take a moment to recap all the amazing things that took place at VERDURE and tell you about all the exciting news about what you can expect in 2022. While 2021 was yet another year requiring adaptation, we have our members to thank for our success and support.
We are pleased to say this was the 4th consecutive year we have added new equipment, made facility improvements and expanded programming. Our members asked that we add a significant amount of leg equipment and we listened. We added items such as a hack squat, pronated leg curl, standing calf and hip thrust.
Our adult and children’s programming expanded to include our first ever summer Country Music Festival, DJ Dance party (sold out), Anniversary Casino Night, Children’s Trunk ‘O Treat and Breakfast with Santa.
In 2022, we are adding several new pieces of equipment for your enjoyment. We are adding 4 more racks for squatting, a belt squat attachment, more kettlebells, slam balls, battle ropes and bumper plates.
We’re also adding more athletic programming such as volleyball and racquetball leagues, and more youth programs like a Parent/Child Dance.
2022 will bring the biggest line up ever at the COVE so there is much to look forward to. The COVE opens early this year the weekend of May 14 and we will have 9 consecutive weeks of activities starting June 4. Children’s activities like Poolapalooza, movie nights, adult parties like multiple DJ Dance parties and several VERDURE LIVE! music events!
To assist with partially covering our additional cost for adding new equipment every year since being open, facility improvements listed above, and expanded programming, we will be nominally increasing monthly dues effective February 1, 2022 to keep up with inflation, rising operational costs and a more competitive employee market causing wages to increase. We will only raise dues $2/month for individuals, $3/month for couples and $5/month for families.
At VERDURE, our goal is to make sure your experience is unmatched with regard to service, equipment, facilities and programming. We always want to hear from you on what we can do to improve your experience and I personally am extending and invitation for you to call or email me at any time if I can be of service to you.
Thank you for your loyalty and for being a member! 2022 will be the best year ever and we are looking forward to serving you!
