Opening Day – Saturday, May 12, 2012 – From The Deep End

MARC Members,

Summer is fast approaching and the pool opens this Saturday, on May 12th.  We passed the pool inspection and everything is set for a smooth opening.  We had our strap furniture professionally refurbished and purchased some new chairs, so expect an updated look.  The expenditure for furniture was significant, so please treat the new furniture with respect.

The Spring Clean-up Day in April was well attended and the grounds are looking good.  Thanks to everyone who came out and helped.  There will still be plenty of opportunities to work off your maintenance fees this summer. Please contact Allison Willis at awillis@nc.rr.com if you want to schedule maintenance duties for the summer.

For the first time in many years, we will be paying for water this summer.  In the past, Heater/Aqua utilities provided water free in exchange for using a well on our property.  Since the well is no longer active, Aqua canceled the arrangement.  Parents, please remind your kids to limit their water usage in the showers.  In the early spring when the weather is cool, it’s tempting for them to stand in the shower for long periods of time to warm up.

Swim Team

Are you thinking about joining the swim team? Are you ready to register?  Join us for the annual Swim Team Ice Cream Social on Sunday, May 20, 2:00-4:00 pm.  Order suits, chat with coaches, go for a swim, sign up for volunteer positions, and eat ice cream – A perfect Sunday!

Membership

Membership bills were mailed in March, so if you have not received yours, please contact Erika Johnson, treasurer, at erikanj@att.net.  We have a new option to pay online.  If you are interested, the link is included on your invoice.

We continue to have several membership options available, including family memberships, empty nest memberships, partial/weekly memberships and an add-on membership option. Partial/weekly memberships are great if you plan to be out of town for a large portion of this summer. The add-on membership option allows members to add-on a person(s) that lives within the corporate area for $125/each person. This person(s) must be accompanied to the pool by an adult host member and is not eligible to be on the swim team.

If you have neighbors who have just moved into the neighborhood, please take a few minutes to tell them about the pool and encourage them to join. Our June 2nd Open House is a great opportunity for perspective members to come and visit the pool and you can refer them to MedfieldAreaRecreationClub@gmail.com if they have any questions.

New Furniture and Lifeguard Stand

We have refurbished most of the strap furniture and purchased some new chairs for the 2012 pool season.  We also have a newly built lifeguard stand for the shallow end of the pool.  These improvements will help give the pool a fresh look.

 

Spring Clean-up Day

About 30 members participated in the clean-up day on Saturday, April 14th.  We had beautiful weather and got a lot accomplished.  Members weeded, landscaped, cut grass, painted, cleaned and generally spruced things up.  We also got the opportunity to renew friendships and meet new members.  Thanks to everyone who participated!  If you were unable to attend, there will be plenty of opportunities to work off your maintenance hours.  Contact Allison Willis to schedule maintenance duties for the season.  If you forgot to sign-in at the clean-up day, let Allison know, so that you can get credit for your work hours.

 

 

Spring Clean-Up Day set for April 14 at 9:00am

We still have a lot of ground maintenance which needs to be completed for our opening. Plan to join us for the Spring Clean-Up Day on April 14th at 9:00am. This is a great way for your family to work off its maintenance fees. We also have several painting projects which could be completed anytime. Please contact a board member if you want to work on one of the painting projects.


From the Deep End – March 2012

MARC Members,

It’s that time again. The MARC pool will open in about two months on May 12th. This winter we completed the pump house upgrade to 3-phase electrical service and installed a 3-phase pump motor with a variable frequency drive unit. We have already found that this new unit is saving us energy dollars during the off-season and we expect it will extend the life of the new motor. We have also purchased a new lawn mower, so if you work off your maintenance fees by cutting the grass, this is great news.

Please contact Allison Willis at awillis@nc.rr.com you want to work on one of these projects.

Board Positions Available

We currently have 2 board positions which are open. If you love MARC, are interested in helping shape its future and are willing to work, we want you on the pool board. Please contact me if you are interested in serving.

Swim Team

Rachel, Zach, Clarke, and Tanner are all returning this summer as coaches. We know the swimmers and parents are all happy to welcome them back!

Membership

When the membership bills are mailed in March, everyone will be happy to see that dues have remained unchanged. We hope this is good news to our membership. Please contact Erika Johnson, treasurer, at erikanj@att.net if you have not received your invoice by the end of March.

If you plan to be out of town for a large portion of this summer, remember that partial/weekly memberships are available. We also have an add-on membership option that allows members to add-on a person(s) that lives within the corporate area for $125/each person. This person(s) must be accompanied to the pool by an adult host member and is not eligible to be on the swim team. This is a great option for the friend or family member that lives in the corporate area but is not a current member and would not be able to come as a guest otherwise.

Membership is essential to MARC’s existence and growth. Please tell your neighbors about your experiences at the pool and encourage them to join. If you have neighbors who have just moved into the neighborhood, please take a few minutes to tell them about the pool and encourage them to join. Our June 2nd Open House is a great opportunity for perspective members to come and visit the pool and you can refer them to MedfieldAreaRecreationClub@gmail.com if they have any questions.
