IRENE V. SHUMAN
(1917 - 2010)
Irene V. Shuman

Irene was the largest donor in the Association's history, giving up to $5,000 annually. She tirelessly volunteered her time to the pool well into her eighties, conducting twice-weekly water aerobics classes for young and old. In the early years, she held a pool operator's license, fixing whatever needed it.

We'll always remember Irene's closing day ceremonies at the pool, with our young swimmers competing for her coveted

trophies and medals (for which she scoured yard sales through the year), as well as the march around the pool flags flying, ending with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.

At her 90th birthday party in 2007, the Association planted a Crape Myrtle tree on the side of the pool in her honor. On June 5, 2010, the pool was dedicated the Irene V. Shuman Pool  for her lifetime of support.


THE GFCA CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUND DRIVE
(Begun October, 2002)
Phase I:  Pool relining, completed 2003 ($8,000). A plaque on the pool house shows gold, silver, and bronze donors.
Phase II:  For 2004, the goal was to replace the cap or top lip on the pool along with leveling the skimmers.  Our pool cap contains about 100 two-foot long coping stones with a row of 6-inch square tiles just below, some with depth markers. Fairfax County states our skimmers, embedded in the pool cap, must be level for us to get a permit for the 2005 pool season. For every $125 donation, the Association dedicated a coping stone. The table below shows the donations received and tiles cemented into the pool wall.
