Our LOST & FOUND table is getting quite full of towels and goggles and other bits and bobs. Take a look next time you’re at the pool and see if you’ve left anything behind.
Also, we have two large pots and one large speaker (most likely broken) that we need to get rid of. If you have use for a pot or a potentially broken speaker, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.

As you know, we have had work going on in the pool house to remodel our bathrooms and office. There was a hold up with some of the permits, so construction has halted; however it should resume soon. At this time there is a construction fence around the building. We ask that neighbors please avoid this area completely to stay safe.
Because the pool house bathrooms are not complete or usable, we will be allowing those using the pool to use the clubhouse bathrooms as long as the clubhouse is not rented. We ask that you please dry off completely before going into the clubhouse bathrooms. And, parents, please supervise your children up at the clubhouse bathrooms. The clubhouse will not be open for hanging out inside; only the bathrooms will be available for use.
We will also have a portable toilet and sink in the parking lot area in case the clubhouse bathrooms are not available. They will be locked and only usable by pool attendees and lifeguards. Due to the limited bathroom facilities, the BBQ/kiddie pool area cannot be rented until we finish construction.
Thank you for understanding. We know this isn’t an ideal scenario for opening the pool, but we know people are anxious to swim and use our shared property.
We are excited to announce that we have decided on the parade theme for our Fourth of July 2023 Parade; thank you to all our neighbors to submitted ideas for us–there were so many good ones! The 2023 theme is…
Remember that any street or family wishing to participate in this year’s parade may do so! You do not have to create a float or have a lot of people to enter the parade.
Here are a few ideas it would be fun to see: -bike brigade -tots on wheels -best dressed dog -decorated wagons and strollers
Think outside the box and come up with an entry and join the parade fun!
