HIGHLIGHTS...

Splash Down at Oak Marr

Oak Marr is putting more fun in the pool. A water slide with a 30-foot drop will be installed in mid-November. Attached to the 35 millimeter high dive, it offers youngsters and the young at heart the chance to make a grand entrance with a splash! This latest and greatest attraction also will be available for birthday party packages.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

Mary Kay Claus
Oak Marr RECenter's
2015 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

As the first contact with customers, front desk staff members are the critical first link in customer service. In this capacity, Mary Kay Claus has become the premier facilitator. She makes IT happen when it comes to customer service.

Mary Kay has been volunteering in this role at Oak Marr RECenter since 2005 and has donated over 1,675 hours of her time to ensure that customers feel welcome as soon as they step foot in the facility.

These top-notch customer service skills were put to the test when Oak Marr underwent a year-long construction and renovation project. Mary Kay's experience, knowledge, and "can do" attitude smoothed the transition to the new fitness center and other renovated areas for our customers.

She has also demonstrated her loyalty to the Oak Marr community. When the closing MOD, Man Mohan Gill, retired, it would have been very easy for Mary Kay to retire as well, they had been working "buddies" on Wednesday evenings for a long time. She didn't retire and our staff and customers are thrilled to have her presence and her brownies with us on a regular basis.

Mary Kay's generous dedication and resourceful approach have impressed our patrons and staff, and have made Oak Marr RECenter a more pleasant place to work and to visit. For her extra efforts along with the responsibility, enthusiasm, and management skills she displays, Mary Kay is genuinely deserving of the Oak Marr RECenter Volunteer of the Year Award!
