Volunteer Opportunities Galore!! Come help us get the pool ready to open

07 Jun 2017 4:13 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
Dear Members,

The weather looks like it has finally turned for the better and we are still on track to open the pool this Saturday (June 10th) at noon.  Just in time for a super hot spell coming this week-end.  The pool is almost full and the heaters will be turned on later today.

There are many things that still need to get done before we open on Saturday at noon.  If you want to get some volunteer hours in, here is your opportunity.  You can also get a sneak peak at the pool before we open by volunteering now.  This list will be updated daily online as items are completed and things are found that need to be added.  We have guards there working on these tasks from 4pm-8pm daily.  If you would prefer to come before this, please let us know and we can arrange for you to be able to get in.

Any expenses incurred will be reimbursed.  Please verify that we do not have the items you are purchasing before you buy them.  If you are coming to do yard & garden work, please bring your own tools as we don't have many at the pool right now.

  1. Put down sod (talk to Dan Keenliside)
  2. Organize shed in the pool area
    - pull out all office stuff and go through it and dispose of items we don't need.
    -  put office stuff neatly in girls washroom for now.
    -  Space needs to be made to put the pool cover in here.
    -  This area should be for pool related items, i.e. chemicals
