May 19, 2021

We are excited to welcome everyone to the 2021 pool season starting May 29! Due to the Governor lifting restrictions on capacity and distancing week next, we are pleased to announce the pool will be operating under much more normal circumstances than last year. We welcome comments, questions, and suggestions as we gear up for a fun summer at the pool.

Pools: Reservations will not be required to swim in upper, lower, or baby pools. However, one lane in the upper pool will be available by reservation only in one hour time blocks. Instructions for reserving the lane, using the same system as last year, will be made available on our website.

Guest Passes: Members will be allowed to use guest passes only on weekdays until further notice.

Lawn: The lawn, picnic tables, playground, and basketball court will be fully open. Members may have food delivered to the pool.

Decks: Deck reservations will not be available until further notice. However members may use the decks on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Masks: Masks will not be required for members and pool staff while in the upper and lower pool houses, nor while outside on pool grounds, in line with the Governor’s announcement lifting the universal mask mandate effective May 14. We encourage members and staff to follow current CDC guidelines for mask usage for vaccinated/unvaccinated people.

2021 Season Covid-19 Impacts

We anticipate that new guidelines for outdoor pools will be issued by the governor by the beginning of May.  These guidelines will dictate our operational procedures.  Once received, the Board of Directors (BOD) will establish appropriate operating procedures and communicate them to you.

Guest Passes

The BOD has held discussions regarding the use of guest passes for the 2021 season.  It is our hope to allow the use of guest passes this season.  We do not expect to make a decision about the use of guest passes until we receive the guidelines from the governor and establish our operating procedures for the season.  The BOD also recognizes that our members from last year (2020) were not able to use their guest passes during the season.  We will look to find a way that our members from last season will be able to use their 2020 guest passes this year.

HELP WANTED! Open Board of Directors Positions

The HRARA Board of Directors currently has two open positions for any member looking to become more involved with the pool.  We are specifically interested in volunteers to assist in the areas of communication as well as engineering and maintenance.  If you are interested or would like to hear more about the BOD, please contact us through the website.

Sponsorships Available

The Board of Directors voted to permit sponsorships beginning this year.  Individuals and/or businesses may sponsor the association and will receive a link on our website and newsletters for the year.  If you are interested in learning more about a sponsorship, please contact us.


After 17 years, the cicadas will be visiting us all this summer.  Please understand that we cannot spray pesticide to prevent them from being on the property.

An election for Directors of the Association will be conducted this month by mail. A shareholder in good standing may nominate him/herself or another member in good standing by submitting a nomination in writing by mail to the Secretary at the address shown below, or online using the Contact Us form and selecting “Secretary of HRARA”.

Each nominee is invited to submit a statement to be distributed along with the ballot form.

Statements may be submitted by mail or online as above.

Nominations and statements must be received by the Secretary no later than 7 PM, August 22, 2020.

The ballot process will use “optional preferential voting” (where the voter will indicate a preference for the most favored candidate, and may indicate preferences for the second most favored, and so on) with the single transferable vote form of proportional voting (where a vote for an eliminated candidate is transferred to the next preferred candidate, and a vote for a candidate who has exceeded the quota is transferred proportionally to the next preferred candidate).

For memberships with more than one person, one adult member may cast a ballot on behalf of that membership.

Ballot forms and statements by the nominees will be distributed by postal mail, and must be returned by mail (postmarked by the date shown on the form) or in person to the pool office during opening hours (no later than the date shown on the form). Each voter must write his/her name on and sign the inside of the flap of the provided envelope. To protect the secrecy of the vote, ballot forms will be separated from the envelopes when the names and signatures have been verified.
