The City of Round Rock has posted the agenda for the "Special Called Meeting" to be held this Thursday, July 28th at 5:30 p.m. It will be held at the RR City Council Chambers, 221 E Main Street. Attached is the agenda.

There will be a presentation and discussion on a natatorium. Public comment will be allowed at this meeting.

It is important for our aquatics community to attend as a united show of support. The RR City Council should be aware that this is an important issue to the voters in this community. It would be great if everyone attending could wear their aquatic group's t-shirt.

Please help get the word out to your group!

If people are unable to attend the meeting but would like to help, let them know they can send an email to the City Council at citycouncil@roundrocktexas.gov telling our City Council that they support and would use an indoor competition pool in Round Rock.

What is your company's corporate donation policy?

It has been brought to our attention that certain locally-based businesses donate to 501(c)(3) organizations either through matching programs or through programs that contribute money to organizations for which their employees volunteer time. Usually, the hours have to be tracked in the company's system or minimal documentation has to be completed, but that is often the only requirement.

Please find out if your company provides this benefit, and if so, please designate WBA as a recipient. Also, if your company has a public website that explains and advertises their policy, please send it to Mike Zayas and we will put a link here to make it easier on everyone.

Here are two that have been brought to our attention:

Dell: Make A Difference - Please note that in addition to matching programs, Dell volunteers with ten or more hours with any charitable organization and time tracked in the Dell online tracking system may choose a charity of their choice and Dell will make a donation.

GM: Dollers for Doers - Through Dollars for Doers, the General Motors Foundation will add to your volunteer impact by awarding a $200 donation to an eligible organization for which you have volunteered 50 or more hours within the calendar year.

HP: Employee Giving Program - Please help us keep fees low going forward, and make the best use possible of opportunities such as these.

Thank you for your help!
