    The guards heard thunder at 3pm today, so the pool will remain closed until 30 minutes goes by without having heard thunder. We will announce when we are open, hopefully soon.

    Dear Members,

    It's another super hot day out today and I just found out it was a PA day in Peel. I have arranged for a couple of guards to come in earlier today so we can open the pool at 12.30pm. I know it's last minute, but if you are around and want to come for a swim, please do!

    There is some concrete construction being done at the pool today - a ramp is being poured in the parking lot to the walkway, so please enter through the Christopher Road entrance. You are fine to park in the parking lot. Just be mindful of the contractors while you are there.

    If you have any questions, please let me know!

    Thanks,

    Jennifer Tondino

    Dear Members,

    Do you have hostas that need splitting? We would like hostas planted along the new wooden fence. We are looking for members who have hostas to share and members who are willing to plant (or both!)

    Thanks,

    Dear Members,

    Is there a plumber in our membership? We have a partially plugged shower drain in the women's change room. This is causing flooding of the change room and a leak down into the basement. If anyone can help please contact me.

    Thanks,

    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
    3. Organize shed in the yard.  This area should have all of the city garbage cans, tables, BBQ’s and lawn related equipment.  If it doesn’t fit, let me know and we can reassess.
    4. Remove garbage bags & cans from deck
      -          move to side yard shed area (on the North side of the shed)
      -          Remove old bulletin board for garbage
      -          Remove broken table for garbage
      -          Remove circular tube for garbage
    5. Dump run as we have a LOT of garbage to dispose of
    6. Garbage pickup through your entire site (pool deck, parking lot and yard).
    7. Mow & edge the grass, including the ditch on Christopher Road and the boulevard on Clarkson Road
    8. Trim bushes around deep end sign so that it is fully visible
      -          Brown bag or tie all yard waste
    9. Trim bushes in parking lot, north pool side and along Christopher to be even and manicured
      -          Brown bag or tie all yard waste
    10. Remove all broken branches from hedges
    11. Purchase and deliver blue paint for the building (expenses will be reimbursed)
    12. Purchase bathroom items  and deliver to the pool (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.)
    13. Paint blue wall
    14. Put out bike racks
    15. Power spray deck
    16. Sweep parking lot
    17. Power spray grey building walls
    18. Power spray parking lot

    20. Weed all gardens
    21. Put benches by the fence along Christopher road (red)
    22. Put chairs neatly by the yard fence between the gate and the building.
    23. Setup the bathrooms
    24. Hang up spinal board
    25. Paint sign in book holder (blue)
    26. Put holders up for the reaching pole on the baby pool fence
    27. Yard weeding
    28. Yard overseeding (soil/seed/fertilizer)
    29. Grass (sod or seed) along wooden fence when it’s done

    Dear Members,

    We see light at the end of the tunnel - or is that water in the pool?

    June 10th will be the pool opening! The warmer weather is upon us and we will soon be able to get relief at Fairfields.

    Looking forward to seeing you poolside,

    Jeffrey Rees, Vice-President

    Dear Fairfields Members,

    I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy this rare nice day today.  We are really looking forward to the upcoming season and are so happy that we have received the Ontario Trillium Foundation 150 grant to do some much needed repairs and upgrades on our pool.  The Board of Directors have been working tirelessly with our contractors to get the work done before opening.  If you have come by the pool, you may have noticed some of the work that has been done already.  

    Due to the ridiculously wet spring that we have had, all construction has been delayed.    Unfortunately, this means that we will not be able to open on our scheduled date of May 20th.  We are currently about 2 -3 weeks behind schedule.  We were really hoping that we might get a chance to catch up, but when looking at the upcoming weather forecast, we don't believe that will be possible.  Again, due to the weather, some of the work we wanted to have done prior to opening has now been moved to the fall so that we can still open the pool during the warmer months.  We are aiming to keep the pool open later in September if we have guards that are able to work.

    We will keep you updated on progress and the date of opening.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
