THE POOL CLOSES for the 2022 Season on 9/25/22
POOL NEWS: We are extending the pool season for an extra week! The pool will be closing for the season on Sunday September 25, 2022 at sunset. Some may have noticed that the pool access has been changing as the sun starts setting earlier and earlier.
Baby Pool Survey results: We had great participation with 128 responses total, and the majority of those being within the first 24 hours. We love that this community is passionate about our pool and other amenities. As of now, there was no clear consensus for how to move forward. The highest result of the survey was just to keep the baby pool operational, but that was only 26% of the survey respondents. Homeowners had lots of ideas and we are evaluating how to move forward. If you have any other comments or ideas, please let us know.
Children under 16 are NOT allowed to be at the pool by themselves. ALL children 16 and under are required to have an adult present with them. Pool privileges may be revoked if this rule is broken!
SOCIAL COMMITTE EVENTS:
Boo the ‘Hood
The Social Committee will start it & then it’s up to you to keep it going! This was a hit last year so we are bringing it back!
A Halloween boo is a small gift or treat left, anonymously, by a neighbor. Once you’ve been booed, you’re expected to hang a picture of a ghost on your front door. This lets everyone know you’ve gotten your surprise. Then you pass on the cheer to other neighbors! Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
