A message from President Gaynor

Dear Skating Club of San Francisco Membership,

As your President, and on behalf of the Board of Directors, we wish you a very joyful holiday season.

As 2016 comes to a close, The Skating Club of San Francisco is proud to celebrate its 82nd anniversary as a member club of the United States Figure Skating Association. Our mission is to support all members in their enjoyment of the sport of figure skating. Our club activities would not be possible without the efforts of our volunteers, as the revenue received from fees for membership, tests, club ice, and competitions goes to support skaters and teams, either through indirect contributions to offset the cost of club ice sessions or in direct requests to our grant support program.

The club is proud to recognize the accomplishments of all our skaters and teams in 2016, congratulations. Please invest in our athletes and help us share their dream and their journey.

You can support our skaters and teams by making a tax-deductible donation to The Skating Club of San Francisco. Please go to the following link: http://scsf.org/donate/

We are so grateful for your contributions throughout the year. Know that we, the Board of Directors, are here to serve YOU, the membership, and we thank you for all you do for our club.

Sincerely,
Jessica Gaynor
President
