COMMUNITY POOL RULES
Use of Pool

All guests must be signed in by the resident in good standing and must leave when the resident leaves the pool area. Guests that are NOT out of town guests will be charged $2.00. This charge will be collected by the Lifeguard on duty. Out of town guests are those people staying overnight with a resident, but not living in the residents house.
