Cool Pool News -2023 – No. 16

So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, goodbye
To summer, at the pool
That has all but flown by…

The last weekend
To enjoy some fun in the sun
Before we pack it all away
As the summer of ’23 is done…

The pool will be open regular hours on Saturday and Sunday.¬† On Monday, the pool opens¬†at 11am¬†and¬†will close¬†at 6pm. Who will be last out of the water for Summer 2023?¬† No dawdling, as the dogs will be on their way in….

The annual end of season dog swim will be happening this Monday!  For just $5 per dog, you can bring your four-legged friends to the pool to enjoy the waters from 6.15-7.15pm. Payment and entry is through the gate by the pavilion.  Please note, the swimming is for the dogs only.  There will be a few assigned two-legged humans in the water to keep the animals safe, but this is primarily a swim for the dogs.  All owners must stay out of the water.

This is your last chance to check the Lost and Found at the pool.¬† If it’s yours, take it home!¬† If there is something that you can make use of (and there are plenty of choices!) please, take what you can use!¬† Swimsuits, towels, clothing, pool toys – take a look!¬† All leftover lost and found after closing day is donated.

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.

Closing work day is looming large –¬†SATURDAY September 9th, 9am-1pm.¬† We need volunteers to get the building and grounds tidied, and supplies and furniture packed away or covered.¬† It is easy and necessary work to protect our “Neighborhood back yard” through the winter months.¬†¬†Please plan to be there with work gloves, muscle power and energy, ready to “stack and pack” – the more the merrier, and the quicker the work is completed!¬†¬†

That’s it for this week,
See you at the pool – it’s going to be great weather this weekend!
