The Entertainment Committee worked hard this year to keep up the tradition of providing Club
Members fun social events to enjoy. As in years past, the Annual Oyster oast was a great success.

ob Smith’s and, More Perfect Jones, entertained the more than 500 Members and guests
that attended. All of our events surrounding Christmas, including reakfast with Santa and our
Traditional Christmas Dinner, continue to be well attended providing a lot of fun and tradition
to all of our Members. The New ear’s Eve celebration was also a popular event. With a winter
wonderland theme, Kaboombox and Savannah provided great tunes to help our Members dance
the night away and ring in the New ear.

The spring was an e ually busy time around the Club. The Once Upon A Time club mixer with
our other area clubs brought a lot of folks together. The traditional Derby Party was combined this
year with Cinco De Mayo. Who says you can’t mix margaritas, bourbon, a horse race and some
nachos There were also multiple wine dinners throughout the spring months.

Setting off the summer was our Member- uest Island Paradise Party. Snack ar Jones played
and all had a great time. The 4th of July Carnival continues to be a success for all of our Members
and their families to enjoy. There were lots of games, food and family time for those who joined
us. reakers oulevard and the rillin’ and Chillin’ Friday nights have become a tradition at the
Club. We again appreciate the Members of our house bands for spending time entertaining other
Members and their guests.

This year, the Committee introduced some clubhouse entertainment. Happy hour drink specials
are available in the Chesapeake oom and Linkhorn Lounge every Tuesday through Thursday.
In addition, solo or duo entertainment accompanies member-tailored drink specials on the first
Friday of each month. There is also Trivia Night the first Tuesday of every month, hosted by our
very own team member, yan Smith. oth have proven to be big hits and will stick around next

If you haven’t had an opportunity to attend any of these events, please make a point to check your

The Lifestyles Fitness Wellness Center continues to see consistent year over year growth in
participation levels and membership satisfaction. The captured usage of the facility is at an all-time
high of 4 ,25 individuals visits with growth in the areas of personal training (teens to 0s), private
group classes, massage therapy and general fitness. Attendance has soared in our Deep Water
Aerobics, Spin and Pilates classes. The coming year will have a focus on developing more family value
and senior programming such as a basketball camp, self-defense for kids and senior dance class, to
name a few.

Over the past year, we made a significant capital investment in all new treadmills e uipped with the
latest technology upgrades, HD and Lifescape functionality. Due to the ongoing interest in personal
training, we have also added heart rate monitoring and calorie counting technology, M ONE, so
members can maximize their training results.

In the interest of keeping our membership informed, we now have a digital bulletin board (main lobby
entry) displaying backgrounds of the fitness team members, class schedules, future events and other
pertinent information. Other enhancements that occurred this year were the revamping of our lifestyle
apparel offerings and the implementation of daily complimentary avored spa-water, gourmet coffee
and fresh fruits – to the delight of many!

We are very fortunate at the PACC to have the dedicated leadership of Andrea Pettay, Director of
Fitness Wellness. Andrea and her team take great pride in digesting member feedback, following
industry trends and making improvements to our fitness offerings to create the most valuable fitness

wellness experience available. If you have not taken the time to come and enjoy our center, please
make a point to do so. Andrea or one of the knowledgeable and friendly team members will be more
than happy to schedule an orientation for you.

A special thanks to the committed professionals we have operating and conducting our classes and
to this year’s Committee for all their support. It’s been an honor to chair this Committee throughout
the year. Thank you for the Fitness Committee’s time and dedication: Jennifer rown, Ned rooks,
Marty Field, arbara Sessoms, Alice Stri er and Winship Tower.

Katie Lorenz had her hands full with activities throughout the summer. Mother’s Day crafts, face
painting, tie dye t-shirts, pi atas, a petting zoo, corn hole, rock painting, knockerball and make-your-
own pizza were just a few of the activities that kept our younger members coming back to the pool
all summer long.

The morning lap swim is always a fresh start to summer for many members. Our swim team had
a particularly strong season. Head coach Matt askette and assistants Andrew, Ashley and Mary
Francis did a great job with about 115 swimmers. The reakers had great success this season
finishing second at Divisionals and many swimmers placing in the All-Star meet. In addition to
practices and meets, the coaches led weekly stroke clinics and gave countless lessons. The hard
work was worth it as 12 PACC records were broken this season.

The dive team continues to grow and thrive under the leadership of coaches Katie Lorenz and Molly
Cassidy. The Princess Anne continues to have one of the elite dive programs in the area. As one
member told me, their children love being on the dive team, they feel it is one of the best values
at the Club.

In addition to the swim and dive team, the pool hosted a variety of entertaining activities for
members of all ages. oth deep water and regular water aerobics were a big hit again this year. The
pool hosted dive-in movie nights, the Kids’ Triathlon and our Annual Scavenger Hunt. Throughout
the week, complimentary kid’s corner crafts and games were offered by the pool. The magic show,
mermaid breakfast and fire department visit were also popular activities.

The pool is now 26 years old. rian and his team continue to work hard to ensure we get the most
out of this aging facility.

As we close out 2018, members uestions, comments and concerns are valued and appreciated.
I encourage you to reach out to one of the Pool Committee Members to share your thoughts. I
also ask that you refer friends to join the swim and dive teams. Enjoy your fall, winter and spring
seasons, we’ll see you back for the summer of 201 .

The youth program at the PACC has grown leaps and bounds in
2018 thanks to the dedicated Committee and amazing Club team.
The Club’s past youth events all went off without a hitch while
the new programs brought great excitement as well. We added
a summer camp for three year olds, introduction to ballet and a
mother and son dance. Summer was packed with poolside games
and crafts and a very successful camp season. We had a wait list
for many sessions and look forward to growing in the coming

The most notable success of the year is the hiring of a full time
outh Programs Manager. This position will allow the youth

programs to prosper. Our new manager will act as a liaison
between the committees and departments and bring a much
needed synergy to all the elements that go into PACC events.
Ultimately, the Committee anticipates this elevated program
to drive more new membership of young families and take the
existing programs and events that we offer to the next level,
adding so much value to being a Member.

The PACC families are looking forward to a fun filled fall and
holiday season with hayrides, seasonal craft nights, trick or
treating and Christmas events. I can’t thank Mike Helms and our
committee enough for all the time they have dedicated to giving
the youth program the reformation it needed and we are so
excited for what the next year holds!

Club, in fact 6 in sales this year, but in general we are seeing a definite shift toward elegance
in wine making styles.

We do enjoy selecting a new grape variety every once in a while and I am happy to report
Columbard took the 5 top selling wine this year. Never thought I would see that, but I am
thrilled to see the membership trying new things.

Keep an eye out for our wine dinners in 201 . We are very close to securing a real winner for
our first wine dinner of the year. We will make every effort to secure wine makers when we can.

We also tasted our share of bad wine this year. Wine that never makes it to the PACC email list
or even the yer hanging on the back wall. Instead, it takes a direct train right to the PACC dump
bucket where it meets its end in a strange looking pinkish blend of rejected grape juice, destined
for the kitchen drain. We spare the membership from these awful moments only to share the
victories, so that you may feel safe in your selections. It is a tough duty but someone must do it.

Thank you for your great support of our wine programs at PACC!
