Eileen Pearce, secretary of the Ruby Valley Swimming Club (RVSC) in Sheridan, moved to the area 20 years ago. In the early 2000s, she attended a pancake breakfast at the fire department and sat down next to a certain someone. “And that’s where it started,” she said of her Ruby Valley Swimming Pool (RVSP) involvement.
