  4. Lannie Phillips, Evergreen neighbor 1995-2008, hard-working pool manager, gentle friend

    In early 2000, our homeowner’s association, Evergreen on the Appalache, needed a dependable pool manager to open, close, and maintain our pool safety standards. Lannie was our man! In a community of nearly 300 families, Lannie volunteered to manage controlled access to the pool, water treatment and pool closure when needed. These duties involved early morning and late evening checks 7-days/week for months, and Lannie said he enjoyed it! Year after year! His volunteer work provided a safe pool environment enjoyed by many. Here is a photo of Lannie and Linda and Lannie with the children in 2003. Wonderful memories.
