Cool Pool News – 2023 – No. 11

Roll out those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy days of summer.

The days of AI are truly near.

But it is really hot.
So come enjoy the pool.
With parties and happenings scheduled
Before that dreaded word – school…!!!

Beginning August 1, we will welcome and allow anyone to “take what they need, leave what they don’t” from the laundry bins.¬† Towels and clothing, swimsuits and floaties – if you can use it, please enjoy.¬† We are happy to “recycle” within our pool community, as all leftover items are donated at the end of the season.

MUMBLES & GRUMBLES
The baby pool is open for children ages 6 & under Рat all times.  If you are new to the pool, please note that your older children are not allowed to swim in the baby pool during break time.  This break time is a requirement by law, to ensure older children take a break, a rest room break, a water break and a chance to reapply sunscreen.  It is NOT a chance to continue playing in the baby pool.  Older children are often seen in the baby pool, perhaps due to their misunderstanding.  So adults, parents, child minders, please know, and note, where your kids are.  The guards will whistle to alert them to leave the baby pool area.

We are happy that so many people are enjoying the grills for their own use and continue to be welcome to.¬† However, contrary to popular belief, there is no “someone else” who magically cleans up after them.¬† PLEASE leave the grills in the clean condition you find them – or cleaner!¬† It will make the next person to use them a lot happier!

That’s it for now.
See you at SUMMERFEST – Support our Cool Pool…and all the hardworking volunteers who make this happen!
