How can I get a membership?
Memberships are available only through purchase from existing members who wish to sell. A “want to sell” list is on the website and is updated as memberships become available. The seller and buyer agree on a price and then follow the instructions on the website for transferring a membership.
Do you have a waiting list?
We do not have a waiting list - our thinking is that the “want to sell” list gives everyone an equal chance to obtain a membership.
Do you have rental memberships?
There are usually 10-15 rental memberships available. Please inquire by email to the Corporate Administrator beginning February 1 about availability before sending your application. A rental must be requested each year, and you may only rent for two years.
I just purchased a membership. What do I do now?
Pay the seller and have him/her sign the membership certificate or write a letter of sale relinquishing the membership to you. Send the membership application found on the website, the certificate (or letter) and a check for the appropriate amount to the Corporate P.O. Box. If the sale takes place before March 15, you may send only the transfer feewithin 30 days until dues are due May 1. If the sale takes place between March 15 and May 1, send the transfer fee, dues and maintenance fee within 30 days or May 1, whichever comes first. If the sale takes place after May 1, all fees are due within a week of the purchase. You will be sent a new certificate, information about your membership and an entrance authorization card. The card must be filled out and returned to the Corporate P.O. Box (not the pool). You may not use the facility until all of the steps have been completed.
We might be busy this summer and won’t be able to use the pool very much. Can we have a reduction on our dues?
As a member of the corporation, your dues are part of the operating budget of the pool. Therefore, the full amount of your dues or your intention to sell must be postmarked by May 1 as usual and no reduction can be accommodated.
Are Nannies, live-in grandparents, siblings, roommates, etc. part of my membership?
The policy states that a membership is the certificate holder, spouse, and unmarried children residing permanently at the shareholders address. All others may buy guest passes or pay a “special use fee.” The amounts are listed on the website along with the dues.
I’ll be out of the country for a few years and want to keep my membership. What should I do?
Send an email to the Corporate Administrator with your information.
I’m old enough to qualify for senior citizen dues for the first time. What do I need to do?
When sending your dues for the year, include a copy of your driver’s license for verification. You may black out all information except the name, address and birthdate if you like.
I’m ready to sell my membership. What is the process?
Send in the termination form and the appropriate amount to the corporate P.O. Box. You will be placed on the “want to sell” list at that time. The selling price is completely up to you and not set by the pool. Once you and the buyer have agreed to the price and exchange the money, you sign over your certificate to them. If you cannot find your certificate, you will need to write a letter stating the sale of your membership to the buyer. At that time, you should inform them that it is up to them to complete the transfer with the corporation before they may use the facility.
What is the maintenance fee?
The maintenance fee helps pay for upkeep on the facility and grounds. You may have the fee waived for the following year by participating in the work day of the current year. It usually occurs on a Saturday in April or May so watch for the date.
I’d like to have a party under the pine trees. How do I set that up?
Check availability by emailing the corporate administrator with the date, start and end time, what kind of party you’re hosting (i.e. birthday party, end of school party, etc.) and approximately how many guests. Specify no later than one week before the party how many of your guests are non-members so the management can adjust the lifeguard staff if necessary.
I’d like to rent the community room. How do I reserve it?
Read the rules on the website concerning community room rental. Confirm availability by emailing the Corporate Manager. Print the rental agreement, fill it out and send it to the Corporate P.O. Box.
