The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and we are already seeing temperatures in the 80’s. The Board has been working hard in the off-season and we are all getting excited for the summer.. Opening day is Saturday, May 27th. It’s only 37 days away! There is a lot that needs to be done before we can open. Please read through this newsletter to learn more and how you can contribute to make this the best season yet! We can’t wait to see everyone pool-side for another memorable summer.

The fee is $50 and is attached to your membership dues. To receive the $50 fee back, each bond must provide 3 hours of service to the Club. Volunteering includes but is not limited to attending promotional events such as Horsham Day to help at the Hideaway table and helping at the Club on clean-up days.

● The crack that has developed in the pool that divides the deep end from the 5 ft area will be repaired prior to the start of the season.

● We are accepting flower donations for 2023. If you would like to make a donation of flowers to put in our flower beds or flower pots, please bring them to Spring Cleaning day on April 29, 2023. We are looking for hearty plants and flowers that do well in the sun. We are also accepting potting soil donations.
