Happy Labor Day -- Pool open until 8 p.m. for final day of the year!

Fellow residents,

We hope everyone is enjoying their long Labor Day holiday weekend. Once the morning clouds burn off, today looks to be a great weather day with temperatures near 80 degrees, so we hope everyone has a chance to jump in the Pool for one last swim this season.

The facility is open until 7:30 p.m. today (adult lap swim until 8 p.m.), then we close for the rest of the year. We had hoped to stay open on a limited basis for the next week or so, but now that school is back in session resident use has dropped dramatically in the past month and we just can’t justify spending money on unused lifeguards.

That said, it’s been a great – and busy – summer full of highlights: We welcomed many new families to our facility and dozens of children in our free swim lesson program; hosted a hugely successful annual Pool party with food provided by the Board and potluck dishes by residents; hired/trained several new guards for the future, (several of them Eagle Nest residents); and renovated the pump room mechanicals to improve our overall water quality (no green water closures this year!)

A sincere thank you to our guard staff and Pool leaders for working hard to keep our facility open and safe every day this season. Thanks also to all our residents for respecting our Pool rules and helping protect our community asset. Not many area neighborhoods can boast of such a facility, so we are lucky to have such a valuable resource in our backyard. It’s good to be an Eagle Nest resident!

As always, the Eagle Nest Board welcomes your comments, concerns and suggestions. Have a great rest of the summer!

Pool hours of operation reduced to weekends only through Labor Day

Dear Eagle Nest residents,

Now that summer is winding down and school is back in session, our Pool facility has seen a significant decrease in usage during weekdays. Most days our lifeguard staff (three staffers daily) would only see one or two patrons during the entire nine-hour shift. The Board simply can’t justify spending money on salaries for unused services like that.

As a result, and in keeping with past practice, effective immediately the Pool will only be open weekends and closed weekdays through Labor Day. Weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, with the first and last half hours of those days reserved for adult swim.

At present, the Pool is scheduled for closure for the season at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2 (Labor Day).

We realize this may be an inconvenience for some residents, but the Board needs to be good stewards of our financial resources for the benefit of all.

If we encounter an unusually hot weather streak and guards are available, the Board may reopen the facility with reduced afternoon hours. If that happens, we’ll post information about days and times on the blog and Facebook so keep an eye out.

In the meantime, the Board thanks our guard staff for their outstanding services this season. Aside from some initial procedural bumps, our Pool team performed exceptionally well and kept the facility open every day. They operated and maintained a whole new pump room and filtration system (a long overdue equipment replacement for the facility), and they even recorded three “saves” of children accidentally left unattended by adults. Be sure to thank our wonderful guards for their service the next time you visit the Pool.

As always, the Board welcomes your feedback. Feel free to email President Scott Thien at scottthien@comcast.net or interim Pool Manager Samantha Burns at samantha.burns51@gmail.com.

Have a great rest of the summer!

Crime Watch meeting cancelled for Aug. 6

Eagle Nest residents,

Due to unexpected staffing issues, the Crime Watch/National Night Out meeting set for Tuesday, August 6, has been cancelled.

We apologize for the late notice. Despite the cancellation, we hope residents will continue the spirit of National Night Out by leaving their porch lights on in solidarity of our anti-crime efforts.

Launched in 1984, National Night Out began as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and alert criminals that neighborhoods like Eagle Nest are organized and fighting back. Today, National Night Out involves millions of neighbors in all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.

Our next Crime Watch meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, and will focus on preparing our homes for winter and any crime news that matters to our neighborhood. Please join us and learn how you can help Eagle Nest remain a safe, healthy neighborhood.

If you have questions or want to get involved with the Eagle Nest Crime Watch, please contact Board member Carolyn Goldenetz at goldenetz@gmail.com
