Volunteers Needed

Now that the pool is officially closed for the season, our facility is being winterized. There are a few quick items that can be handled by member volunteers including moving the picnic tables and removing the deck canopies. We are looking for volunteers on Saturday morning at 10am to help with these items—with enough help, these tasks should be finished in 30-45 minutes. If you are able to help, please stop at the pool at 10am. Thank you!

Thank you!

Thank you to the volunteers who helped organize the final event of the season, the fall pig roast: Jim Wright, Mark Sites, Seena Polivy, Bryan Hogge, Jason Kowalewski, John Schrock, Laura Champe Mitchell, and Barbara Foley. Thanks also to the many volunteers on the night of the event who helped with set up, tickets, clean up, and the pumpkin craft!

Survey results

Thank you to everyone who responded to the end-of-season survey. The most requested improvements are better umbrellas and bases and updating the bathrooms. The board is looking into these improvements and will be making plans this winter. If you are a contractor and would like to be considered in the bidding process, please contact Communications.

Look for an update from the Holmes Run Pool President, Mark Sites, after the New Year with more news. Memberships for next season will open in the spring. We look forward to seeing everyone back poolside next year!

We are pleased to announce the registration for the 2022 season is open! Sign up and join today.

For 2022, the rates will remain the same as last year.  We are also pleased to offer an “Early Bird” rate that gives you the same rate as 2020 season.  If you do not plan to return as a member this year, be sure to let us know and pay your inactive fee of $75 to maintain your shareholder status.

Payment must be made online or postmarked by April 15, 2022 to qualify for early bird rates.

After doing a market analysis, the BOD has decided to adjust the number of guest passes included in each membership to be in line with what is offered at other area pools. Individual guest passes may be purchased for $10 each.

We are very excited to share this upcoming swim season with you all and look forward to seeing you all poolside!

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.

Cicadas

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.
