SAFETY UPDATE
A friendly reminder that any type of glass (bottles, jars, etc.) are not allowed on the pool grounds at any time. We have had 2 reported incidents of glass breaking at the pool this summer. Luckily, no one suffered any injuries. PLEASE, pour your favorite drinks into break-proof containers before bringing them into the pool.

SUPPORT OUR GUARDS
Every year our lifeguards spend countless hours keeping all of us safe and keeping our pool grounds clean. Not an easy task given the debris that falls from our lovely trees. This year the board decided to open up a GoFundMe page for anyone who wishes to support our guards on their future endeavors. Any money collected will be split evenly among our treasured staff.
