Finally! The 2021 pool season is almost here! While this will be the second year of the pool operating during the pandemic, the pool will open normally on Memorial Day weekend, and we will follow county and state safety guidelines. Hopefully, we will not have to change any operations this season, but in the unfortunate even, updates will be posted on the pool website, www.rfpool.com.
New News! We have been working hard this winter to bring Rolling Forest into the digital age. We will be using Member Splash, a membership platform, which will assist us with streamlining the management of the pool. This new platform will provide for us:
• Front desk Check in with photo
• Online registration and payment
• Online pavilion reservation
• Mass communication via email
• Being paperless!
We are currently in the process of migrating all registration information into this platform. The system requires a valid e-mail address, so it is ESSENTIAL that this address be included with your registration information this year. Once the system is operational, you will be given a login to verify your demographic information and upload your photo. All future communications and registrations will be sent through the system and mailings will not be necessary (which will be a sizable time and cost saver).
Now, for less exciting new news. With the rise of the minimum wage, the increased cost of goods and services and rising insurance costs, we have had to re-assess our fees. For us to cover these increased costs, we have increased the membership cost by $50.00 across the board. The fee covers all household members, including live-in caregivers residing in the household for the summer. As always, you have the option to pay your membership by check or credit card (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for credit card payments).
Below are the various membership types available.
Charter memberships are available to owners of residences with certain addresses in the Rolling Forest Subdivision. See a map of qualifying residences below. Tenant memberships are renters of charter residences, when the owner chooses not to purchase the membership on behalf of the renters.
An Associate membership is available to anyone who wishes to join the pool, indiscriminate of where they live.
Voluntary memberships have been capped and are only available to existing members with Voluntary memberships. Voluntary members pay an upfront deposit and the same annual fees as Charter memberships. Depending on the number of years a Voluntary member is with the pool a percentage of the deposit is returned upon membership cancellation.
