Pool Maintenance – 2018

We strive to keep our Dues and Maintenance fees some of the most reasonable
rates in the area.  To do so, each year we ask our returning members to help get
the Pool and grounds ready.   Those that help can defray their $75 maintenance
fee.

Pool Maintenance/Clean up days/Painting – dates and times
The following dates and times for clean up days are as follows:
Saturdays - 4/8, 4/15, 4/22 and 4/29 between Noon - 5:00
Sundays   - 4/9, 4/23, and 4/30 between Noon - 5:00.  

Typical clean up tasks involve raking leaves, cutting grass, removal of small trees/branches,
clearing the driveway, & etc. – basically getting the grounds picked up. If you can help, please
bring your own tools and equipment (rakes, shovels, brooms) as the club has only a small supply
on hand. Help is also needed with prepping and painting the pools. Prepping the pool involves
scraping paint, cleaning the pool walls, and then painting the pool. A fairly easy task when you
have enough help.

Painting the pool is very weather dependent and is best done either very early in the morning or
late afternoon/early evening. If you are able to help paint, please call a Board Member and we will
let you know what nights we will be painting. Work usually commences around 6:00pm during the
evenings for a couple of hours.

When you send in your dues, please note on the statement the date you participated in the clean
up (sign in sheets will be at the pool on clean up days and pool painting nights). If you were
unable to help please include the $75.00 maintenance fee. Please call any Board Member if you
have any questions.

The $75.00 maintenance fee (remains the same) and will be charged to your dues if you
are unavailable or can’t help
. This fee is low compared to other area pools, and some pools
require a minimum of 8 hours of participation in addition to a maintenance fee.
