Let The Sun Shine & New Court Maintenance Volunteer


Olivia Kinzler, Sunshine Person & chef

Let the Sun Shine
When we join clubs here at Oakmont, we become part of a close-knit group of people in a mini-community. As we are all aware, these communities, reliant on volunteers to function, provide support to all members. Our tennis community is fortunate to have the radiant Olivia Kinzler as our Sunshine person. According to Olivia, the role of the Sunshine Person is “to bring a little light, happiness and hope” to members who are ill, recovering from illness or injury, or who have lost a spouse or partner. Over time, Olivia has subsidized the acquisition of a stash of cards from the original blank cards in which she would write a personal note of encouragement to a plethora of cards for specific purposes. Her efforts, while not identified as a board position, are a welcome expression of caring on behalf of and for our members. If you know of anyone who might benefit from a little cheer, contact Olivia.

New Court Maintenance Volunteer
New members bring new energy, and that is clearly the case with Ron Charlton. Ron, a recent Oakmont resident, joined the OTC full of enthusiasm to return to a sport he hadn’t played since high school. Now he is extending that energy to the Court Maintenance committee role. In that position, Ron will keep an eye on the condition of all six courts and facilities, reporting issues to the OTC President and the OVA. If you find an issue that needs attention, let Ron know. That being said, cracks on the courts are well documented, but an issue for OVA, so please don’t report them.
