Membership

We’re happy to announce that our membership rates will remain the same for the 2018 swim season. We need to continue building our membership and word of mouth is the best advertisement. We had more new family members last season than we did in years and it’s great to see so many new faces. We hope to see all of you again this year!

We will continue to have two types of membership: Bondholders and Non Bondholders. If you are a non bondholder and have been for a couple of years, you may want to consider purchasing a bond. A bondholder member has voting privileges and can run for any open board position. The bondholder membership is also less expensive. The purchase of a Pool Bond would pay for itself in less than two seasons. The pool still has a limited number of bonds available for $150. Non renewing Bondholders that would like to sell their bond can contact Don Waltz to be placed on a list of bonds for sale.

**** Please remember, if you do not renew your membership for the season, you must pay the Bond Maintenance Fee of $100 to keep your bond active. ****

Payment Options

As in past years, we are including payment coupons for those who wish to make installments. Payments will be accepted in the amount of your choice. All payments need to be paid prior to the opening of the pool. We will continue with the discount for paying your membership in full by May 1, 2018 and the Senior Discount for members 59 years of age or older. Please note that only one discount can be taken on your membership. For members wishing to use credit cards for payments, we are using Pay Pal again this year. The link will be available on our website www.pennacresswimclub.org.

Membership Guest Passes

Our pool offers guest passes to all of our active members. The passes are sold to offer our members the option of bringing in guests at a reduced cost. Guests must be accompanied by the current pool member and are not to be used in replacement of a membership. If you choose to bring a guest, you can pay a daily guest fee or purchase a guest pass. Each guest pass includes 10 guest entries and if you don’t use it in one season you can hold it for use in the following season.

We are also offering a family day pass again this year. If you know of any family who might be interested in joining the pool, please offer them a day pass so they can come out and see what a great pool we have. Passes are limited to a one day visit per family per season and will be available at the pool.

Lifeguarding Positions

If you are interested in a guard position, please e-mail us. Lifeguards must be 15 years old and certified.  Certification classes are taught by the Girls and Boys club.

Pool E-Mail

We will continue to use the pool e-mail for most of our correspondence through the season; pennacresswimclub@gmail.com.  Please contact us with any questions and the appropriate board member will respond.
