VMCI Update

Dear VMCI Members:


Our Annual General Meeting onSeptember 14, 2014is quickly approaching and it is time to nominate our 2015 Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee is in place and needs to fill the following positions:



Vice President


Tennis Chair

Pool Chair

Social Chair

At Large Member


Our Club membership numbers are at an all-time high and the club is in excellent financial condition. Our swim team continues to haul in ASA trophies, our tennis teams continue to line the court fences with ALTA championship plaques and our social events are the best in Dunwoody. And we needyourhelp to keep this ball rolling along!


Please consider volunteering for one of the above positions for 2015. While the officer positions (President, VP and Treasurer) must be held by resident members, the other positions are open to all members and it is important to have representation on the board from resident members, associate members and senior members. It also helps to have some newer members who bring fresh ideas, especially for social, tennis or pool.


Please e-mail current President Eric Friedman atpresident@villagemill.orgfor more information on the duties of any of the above positions. Please volunteer to keep VMCI one of the best clubs in town.

Swim Team

Thank you to everyone for a great swim season at Village Mill.

The Vipers had a lot of fun swimming every day and ended the season with 3 victories, 1 loss and a tie due to weather. We sent a record number of swimmers to the Divisional Meet at GA Tech and had a number of swimmers return for the final meet.

It would not have been possible without all the hard work of our coaching staff and our fabulous volunteers.Cheri Mills, Chandler Mulford, Haley Pierce, Wyatt Brown, Allie Puckett and Corrine Sinsigalli all worked long and hard to make it a great summer swim season.

Our many fabulous volunteers made the work seem easy and kept it all fun. Thank you to everyone who gave their time and energy this summer.

We need your feedback to make our program even stronger. Please fill out the attached survey swim team to provide input for next year.
