We wanted to connect with our membership, given the current restrictions in place during this pandemic. We know many people are wondering about the pool…we all are.
We hope to open the pool quickly once the Ontario government and local public health guidelines allow us to do so (the Ontario state of emergency has been extended).
Everyone’s safety is our number one priority and we want to acknowledge that many of the sacrifices we are currently making are not easy, but necessary. We often hear updates when everyone else does so please understand that once we hear the updates we do need time to figure out what that means for us, how that will look for us, and validate our next steps through the proper channels. At present, the earliest we can open the pool is July 1.
Behind the scenes we are working on the improvements mentioned in the AGM report and making sure we have everything ready, so when we do receive the word to open, we can do so in a safe and responsible manner.
We successfully opened our tennis courts (and pickleball courts) shortly after the government allowed us to do so. While using the courts please remember to follow the appropriate guidelines. Provincial orders require that individuals using these amenities, except for members of the same household, are to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres or six feet. Public Health continues to encourage members of the public to complete a self assessment (if you are not feeling well please do not use the facilities), follow good personal hygiene and regularly wash and/or sanitize their hands.
Here are some highlights of what has already taken place this season:
- New Pickleball lines and nets.
- Maintenance at the pool house has been started.
- Work on the grounds around the pool.
We are very fortunate to live in such a great neighbourhood and please be patient and kind with your neighbours, we are all in this together.
If you are looking for ways to help, we can always use a hand weeding both inside and outside the tennis court fence as well as the garden areas.
