Hello Robindale Woods Pool Families!
We hope that this email finds everyone well and ready for another great summer at Robindale Woods Pool! I am sure everyone is ready for some warm weather and outdoor fun and sun after these last few weeks especially.
The Board has had their first meeting for the year, and although it is cold outside today we are preparing for another great season, which will be here before we know it. We have some updates and info to share with you:
First, we have a new Secretary! Kristie Lee has stepped up to take the place of Secretary for our board. Kristie was an at large member who not only shared in pool responsibilities, but has also been a huge help with fund raising, open houses etc. With that change taking place, we now have an opening for an at large board member. Please, if you are interested or willing to volunteer a small amount of your time to join our team, please let us know. All of the Board Members have been in positions for 3 plus years now and we would like to be able to have new people working with us, so that in the future, as we exit, we can teach others what we have learned. Our goal is to eventually turn the pool over to board members who have all the information and know how needed to run it successfully, instead of having to figure it out as many including us have in the past.
We have chosen a date for beginning the work on opening the pool. We will be draining and cleaning the pool beginning Saturday May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd. We ask that anyone who can help please put this on your calendars. Any amount of time and effort given is greatly needed and appreciated. Please remember that it is a member ran pool, so it takes all of us together to get it done! We will plan on officially opening the following weekend of May 8th.
Thanks to all of you for your donations to cover loan payments through the off season! Because of that we are able to keep the membership dues the same this year, which is $295.00. We will also be offering the extended family memberships again for $125.00. You can join of course by going to our website robindalewoods.com and filling out the application. You then have the option to pay online through paypal or you can mail a check to 5021 Laurel Woods Dr. Knoxville, TN 37921. We will also offer the option to make payments, although the entire membership must be paid by June 1st. If you choose to make payments please let one of us know so that we can make arrangements.
We did fall short on the number of members needed last year, which contributed to our financial dilemma. We are going to start putting flyers out in our area next month to try and gain some more members. We also ask all of you to please help us advertise! If you would be willing to put some flyers out at your work, church, school, or neighborhood, please let us know. We can print these off for you if needed. We just need help getting the information out there. Gaining 10-15 more families over last year (we had 38) would make all the difference. So please help us spread the word!
We are excited about this year and looking forward to seeing all of you at the pool soon! It is going to be a great summer!
