Remember Marco Polo?
Well, it was back in full swing at Clinton’s Jack Boynton Pool this summer. Leave it to the resilient kiddos to find a way to have socially distanced fun in six feet of water. Multiple generations have found fun, relaxation, and friendship at the Pool — now even during a pandemic!
Your gift will guarantee that more children will get to create their own special memories next summer.
- Gift of $100 – Making a big splash in the deep end
- Gift of $50 – Going strong in the lap lane
- Gift of $20 – Staying cool in the shallow end
With a shorter season, limits on user numbers, and the added expenses of keeping everyone safe from the virus, the pool had to dig into its rainy day funds to cover an operating loss of almost $8,000 last summer. We need your support now for this deeply valued community asset.
Are you ready to support summer?
Here are ways you can help the pool and our community.
Go to AmazonSmile to support the Clinton Youth Foundation every time you make an online purchase through Amazon.
Consider buying a unique Clinton Pool lifeguard sweatshirt or Tee.
But the easiest of all, your monetary gift combined with those of other community members will help us get back on an even keel.
When we recall the delight of the kids in the pool this past summer, we cannot help but have hope for a bright future; your gift today will help us better prepare for that shared future. Thanks for your (continued) support of the Clinton Pool!
Get Your Pool Swag!
Over the summer, several of you asked about purchasing “CLINTON POOL LIFEGUARD” sweatshirts or t-shirts and we’ve listened! We have pool apparel (t-shirts and sweatshirts) for sale. If you are interested please email the pool at firstname.lastname@example.org. Show your support with Clinton Pool swag!
Thanks for a great season!
To everyone who join us at the pool this summer, or who supported the pool opening this season, we want to extend our most heartfelt thanks. We’re thrilled to have been able to create some wonderful summer memories amidst these difficult times. We look forward to more fun in the sun with you next season!
Season Extended — One Last Week to Swim!
By popular demand, the Clinton Pool will be open for an additional week! Typically, we close our doors during the third week in August, as our lifeguards head back to college or fill their calendar with fall sports. This year, staffing allows us to extend the season for an extra glorious week of swimming — through Saturday, August 29!
One caveat — when we decided on member prices for the season, we didn’t factor in this additional week. As a non-profit, we set prices to cover costs, and providing you with more swim time will mean extra days of payroll and operating expenses of $4,000 to $5,000. We are happy to make this happen, but we would appreciate your support. If you value the extra time at the Pool, we ask you to make a one-time suggested donation of $30 to $50 — or whatever you can afford — to help cover the cost. Donations can be made online via Paypal or in person at the Pool.
Reserve your Slots in Advance
Due to limited capacity for the 2020 season, the Pool will offer advanced booking for our two daily time slots: 1-3:45pm and 4:15-7pm. Once you have secured your Membership* you will be able to access this service. Seasonal/Monthly members will be able to book slots up to three days prior to your visit, while Day Use members will be able to book a day in advance. Everyone will have the option to opt in for email and text message notifications.
*All visitors to the pool will need to register as members this season. Please visit our Membership page for options.
Matching Grant – Support the Pool!
The Pool received a gracious $5000 matching grant to help with operating costs this year, and with your help we were able to match that amount! Thank you for everything you do to support our pool.
The POOL is open for the 2020 Season!!!
After weeks of hard work and meticulous preparation, we’re thrilled to be able to invite the community back to the pool this summer. There are a number of additional RULES AND REGULATIONS that will be in effect and ALL swimmers will need to have some form of MEMBERSHIP. Please visit these pages on the site, sign up for your membership, and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Annual Meeting – Monday, June 29 at the Pool
Thank you to those of us who joined us for our Annual Meeting. We met in person, outside at the Pool and discussed the upcoming season, new rules and regulations, as well as our new reservation system. We are very fortunate to have the support of the community as we move toward opening this weekend!
