New President

At the FBSP Board Meeting on April 26, 2016, we elected Steve Barnick to serve as President of the board.  In addition, Crispin Richey was elected to serve on the board as our Fundraising Chair.  And in the absence of any objection, Lindsey Robbins was elected to serve as our Fun chair.

We are delighted to welcome Steve back to the board.  He brings much wisdom, experience, passion, and happy vibes to our work to a help return the pool to its rightful glory.

We also look forward to Crispin bringing his fearless and energetic passion (and credit card reader) to support our fundraising efforts.  And when Lindsey returns from our global sojourn, we will be expecting much from our happy traveler to help promote happiness and well-being at Barton Springs Pool.
