Jun 28, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events)  //  No Comments

Every 4th of July, Old Farm Pool lines the streets of Old Farm with American Flags.  It looks great, and it follows the Parade Route from Farmland Elementary to the Pool.  Your family can Sponsor a Flag for $20.  This reflects your community support, patriotism, and your kids get to see their name in “lights.” In addition, your name will be posted on one of the flag poles.

Space is limited.  Please sign up soon.  Contact Kristen Mirsky –or– leave $20 check (made out to Old Farm Pool). Cash is fine if they put it in a seperately sealed envelope clearly marked with their name & phone number.  Please put how you would like your name plate to read: ie:The Jacobson Family/  Congratulations Class of 2011/ Sam and Jackie Jacobson/Mr. and Mrs. Jacobson/ etc.  and your STREET NAME.

Message from the President: Pool Security

Jun 27, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), News  //  No Comments

In the past few weeks I know that we have been bombarding you with lots of messages about pool activities.  Hopefully you find these informative and relevant.  This message is being sent as a reminder, not just as an update on pool matters, but something that affects the entire neighborhood.

Vandalism at TildenWood Pool
For those of you who may not have heard, our neighbors at TildenWood pool had vandals break in early last week and did some significant damage to their property and equipment including throwing furniture in the pool, breaking doors into their building, throwing a laptop, cash box and other office equipment into the pool and scrawling graffiti on the walls.  Additionally, cars in the neighborhood with TildenWood stickers were targeted for damage with windows smashed and other costly damage.  The TildenWood Board of Directors is working with the police and hopefully they will find those responsible.

Vandalism at Old Farm Pool
Pool security is something we take very seriously at Old Farm.  We have the appropriate signage, barbed wire along the fenceline and lighting in the evenings and we have invited the Montgomery County Police to frequently drive up to the pool in the evenings.  Having said that, we are not without incidents.  This past weekend a members car was broken into while parked along Swim Club Way during the recent home swim meet.  As a reminder, when you drive to the pool, please make sure your car is locked while in the parking lot or along the access road, and make sure nothing of value is left in your car.  Thank you for your continued support of the pool and please remember to secure your valuables.

Sincerely, Bruce
Bruce Kay, President
Old Farm Swim & Paddle Tennis Club
