Italian Center Information

Week of 5/8/17 

Building Update

The summer season is just around the corner! We are currently busy getting ready to open the outdoor pools on Saturday, May 27th for Memorial Day Weekend. We have a fun Pool Opening Party planned to kick off the season on Friday, May 26th at 6:30pm. Soul Daddy will be performing! Join us for great music, food and company. More details to come soon!

The cleaning of the Italian Center and the demolition of the locker rooms continue.  We are bringing in portable locker rooms until the reconstruction is complete. In the end, we will have brand new, updated locker rooms.  We hope to have the fitness center and indoor pool open within the next few weeks.  

Please know that we are working as fast as possible to have the building back up and running. We understand that this is very inconvenient for our members and we share your frustration. 

Thank your for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.  We truly value our members and appreciate your support. Please rest assured that we will re-open and will be better than ever!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Current Billing Issues and Changes

We would like to apologize to our members that recently received a bill with an incorrect payment due date. The Italian Center recently implemented a new software system prior to the fire and there are still a few glitches in the system that were not corrected. We understand this has led to some frustration and would like to explain how billing will work going forward.

For example, if you joined the Italian Center on June 15, a membership charge will show up on your account on May 1st. This gives you 45 days’ notice before your payment due date. It does not mean you need to pay this bill in May. However, it does mean that since you joined on June 15, you must pay your bill or have a payment plan in place by June 14.

Beginning in September, we will be implementing a late charge. Following the example above, if you have not paid your dues by June 14, at midnight on June 15, your membership will be cancelled and you will be charged a $50 reinstatement fee.

Your statement will also reflect any other charges (i.e., guest fees, etc.) that occurred during the current month. All charges are payable upon receipt of your statement.

Statements will now be sent out via e-mail so please keep us current with any changes to your email address. If you do not know your join date it can be found in your member portal.

We hope that this has cleared up some of the confusion. Please feel free to contact Marilyn Macri at mmacri@italiancenter.org with any questions.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
