Dear Associate Member,
It’s that time of year again….time to don your new swimsuit and prepare for another hot Springfield summer!
The pool’s opening day and Annual Open House is Saturday, May 26th. Pool hours that day are 11am-9pm. Please invite your neighbors and prospective members to join us for complimentary sodas and ice cream social from 1-3 p.m. Board members will be available to answer questions and process memberships at that time. If you are available to assist in the open house please email the board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Rolling Forest Pool membership fee remains one of the lowest in the Springfield area. All of our members can enjoy free Wi-Fi at our well-maintained pool. Associate membership fees for the entire summer are just $480 per family; for our Active Duty Military members, the cost is $400 for the season. This fee covers all household members, including live-in caregivers residing in the household for the summer. Guests are permitted with a valid guest pass. We will again offer you the option to pay your membership fee by check or credit card (contact treasurer if you wish to pay by credit card). Additionally, if any current member in good standing refers a new associate member, both parties will receive a $50 refund. The new associate member that you refer must note your name on their membership form and purchase a full family membership to qualify for the refund.
We are acquiring a new membership system this year. This will allow us to send out invoices electronically and provide up-to-date pool news. The new system will be to process your payments online and will streamline the membership process. WE WILL EMAIL THE INVOICES NEXT YEAR! This will require us to validate your email address.Our lifeguards will verify your address prior to distributing your membership cards.
Pool members may reserve the pavilion for a fee of $10 per hour for a max. of 3 hours during pool operating hours. This fee covers use of the grill and cleaning of the pavilion. Additional charges will apply for after- hours parties. Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Where scheduling conflicts arise, swim team events and pool social activities have priority. For more information about scheduling parties, contact email@example.com.
Guest passes are $2.00 per guest on Mondays thru Thursdays and $5.00 on Fridays thru Sundays and holidays. Guest passes are sold in $20 increments at the front desk and must be paid for by a check written to RFRA. These passes are non-refundable, but never expire and are transferable. We also offer 7-day family passes for $40 that affords unlimited swimming for your visitors.
In order to keep the costs as low as possible, we all need to work together. Donations of material items and/or handyman work are always welcome and are a great way to keep our operating costs down. Our goal is to pay for future increases in expenses by growing the membership base, rather than raising member fees. Please introduce friends and new neighbors to the pool so they can experience our hidden gem on Flax Street.
