Many years ago, COPOCO was established as a cooperative organization, with members giving a little of their time to generate a sense of community and personal "investment." COPOCO depends on its members to operate: to hold social events; open, close, and maintain the tennis courts; do basic painting, staining, and landscaping; handle mailings and update our website; keep the facilities clean; and help with a wide variety of special projects. If we hired out all the work our costs will increase and so will the yearly dues.
Each membership (tennis and or pool) is encouraged to volunteer their time and expertise. At least 2 volunteer hours per COPOCO member family are required during the season and/or during opening and closing scheduled cleanup. If a member family does not wish to volunteer, a $160 Work Fee will be assessed.
