First Annual Old Farm Pool Oktoberfest October 11th!

Sep 13, 2014   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), News  //  No Comments

Do you miss those summer friends already? Do you want to help fund some necessary repairs this off-season too? Do these great things and have a great time too by coming to the First Annual Old Farm Pool Oktoberfest. To make our Oktoberfest a success, we need some supplies from you (see below). Please sign-up for what you can bring!

The pool will provide entertainment, grills, venue and some basic meats and organization. The proceeds from your $10 per adult donation will be used to offset some necessary repairs around the pool during the off season.

See you there!

Thanks for a Great 2014 Swim Season!

Sep 8, 2014   //   by President   //   Notes from the President  //  No Comments

Yesterday marked the official end of the 2014 swim season at Old Farm Pool and the celebration of our 50th season.  The weather was perfect and we had lots of people enjoying one last day at the pool, culminating with the annual doggy dip and stacking of the deck furniture.  Thanks to all who helped.

Just a reminder that if you are interested in becoming more involved with the pool and becoming a member of the Board of Directors, please let us know by contacting us at nominations@oldfarmpool.org.

Your Board of Directors still has lots to do this season as they wrap up operations for 2014 and start thinking about 2015.   Not only that, don’t forget about Paddle Tennis and Pickleball that will start in the late fall.

If you have thoughts or ideas, please let us know.

Looking forward to hearing from you and have a safe autumn and rest of the year.


End of the Season Party This Sunday

Aug 31, 2014   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), News  //  No Comments

It’s hard to believe, but the pool season is coming to a close. The kids are all back in school now and before you know it, the leaves will be turning soon too. But let’s not focus on that for the moment. Instead, let’s focus on the last great event we’ll be having at the pool.

A week from today (Sunday September 7th) we will be having our last day in the pool and festivities, including the “world famous” Old Farm Pool Doggie Dip. So, without any further adieu, here is the schedule for Sunday:

1:00 Light Concessions
3:30 – 6:30 Rocklands Food Truck
6:00 – Everyone out of the pool
6:00- Doggie Dip (we will have some doggie treats)
6:45 – Clean up starts!

And as a reminder, this is the last event of the season. While we were contemplating a Saturday evening adult party, we’ve elected to have an event for everyone during the day Sunday instead.

Lost and Found

Aug 25, 2014   //   by President   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events)  //  No Comments

As the 2014 pool season draws to a close, just a reminder that you need to check the lost and found basket located near the front door of the pool building.  After the pool officially closes for the season, any towels remaining will be donated to an animal shelter and any other items will be thrown away.

Old Farm Pool 50th Anniversary Celebration This Saturday

Jul 20, 2014   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), News  //  No Comments

This Saturday, will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the pool. Beginning at 3pm we will have all kinds of fun stuff going on — from a moon bounce to games and treats. Rocklands food truck will be at the pool from 5-8pm too. But wait, there’s more…

It wouldn’t be a trip down memory lane without music from the era. We will start with music from the 60s, covering each subsequent decade each hour. Then around 9pm we will be doing our annual movie night on the deck.

The day will be open to the community, however we are asking non-members for a flat $20 per family to cover additional costs. Of course no charge for Old Farm Pool members. Be sure and RSVP that you’re coming and tell your Facebook friends on our event page.

See you on the 26th!
