Annual Dog Swim

Annual Dog Swim

Hello Beechwood,

Please excuse this late message, I am afraid I have been distracted by this hurricane/weather down south… I have relatives in Puerto Rico and Florida and my future in-laws are in Ft. Lauderdale… so nerve wracking!! I pray that if you have relatives down south (Houston as well) ┬áthat they stay safe and receive the help that they may need… and if we are threatened by the hurricanes churning down there, that you take every precaution necessary to stay safe!

One resource that I use is Next Door Beechmont. You can locate it on Facebook or online, and it’s easy to get signed in to our ┬ámessage board for our neighborhood… that way we can stay connected to neighbors close and not so close by. I highly recommend it, city officials are connected and important announcements come through there as well.

And now for our final announcements for summer 2017:

Dog Swim Party @ 4pm this Saturday, Sept. 9

(Please enter leashed, and please all shots up to date)

Bring your pooches to the pool and let’s see if they love the pool as much as we do! This is a really fun and unique activity… even if you do not have a dog, it’s fun to observe!

And finally, please be ready to help us stack all of our pool deck chairs and lounges for storage under our snack shack area. We really appreciate all of the members here at the Beechwood Recreation Association, it is all of you who make this association the best in the city.

We look forward to seeing you all this Saturday!!

Volunteer Days

Volunteer Days

It’s that time of year again, time to get ready for our new season, time to get the pool drained, cleaned, and painted for the 2017 summer season! Please save the dates for the afternoon of the 21st, all day of the 22nd and the 23rd of April (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

There is a lot to be excited about,with our new filters and the tennis courts all cleaned up… I am so looking forward to this summer!

Please come out in clothes that can get messy, wear boots and bring brooms if you can. Those of you who are familiar with this detail, please text or e-mail me back so that I have a list of seasoned helpers.

I will list exact times for arrival in a follow up e-mail, but the deep end will be drained and painted on Saturday afternoon… hoping to get the shallow end drained cleaned and painted the afternoon of the 21st, Friday.

1 free pool pass will be given to each family member who can show up and help us get the pool going again.

In addition, please remember that membership dues are being accepted, and each family receives 5 free passes for dues paid by the 15th of April! We could definitely use the membership dues early this year, we have a few extra expenses before we open.

Make sure that you spread the word on our upcoming season, we need more families to join us!! Please contact Jeanette with any questions.

Thank you SO much for all of your help!
