Pool Committee:
Officers: Rosemary Campion & Cheryl Huizing, Co-Chairmen 
Board Liaisons: Guy Balok, Sandy Nolan & Kathleen Connor

Located behind the clubhouse is a large sundeck that overlooks Silver Spring Lake and within this enclosure, is a huge inground, heated pool and baby pool, with plenty of seating. Adjacent to the pools is another sundeck, this one elevated, where people can sit at tables, beneath umbrellas in the shade, enjoy a meal or simply relax. From the pool enclosure, residents and guests can access locker rooms, showers, the clubhouse or the lifeguard office. 

Since this is a rather large amenity at Highland Lakes, a Pool Committee aids in the smoothe operation of daily activities. Members are present at the poolside almost daily, verifying that lifeguards are watching over residents and guests, taking note of adult swim times, swim lessons, and reporting horseplay or unsafe practices. If the shower rooms need lockers, the diving board needs to be replaced, we are running low on toys, or there is a safety concern, it will most likely be discussed at the next Pool Committee meeting. 

The committee also plans social events and nightime swims, where the lights are turned on, and people enjoy beverages or food while visiting other residents and guests. The Pool Committee serves as a communications liason with the Property Manager and makes proposals to the Board of Directors when necessary for implementation of new ideas, upkeep of the pool enclosure or simply to suggest efficient practices. Some recent examples include re-strapping lounge chairs, purchases of lockers, social events and nightime swims, refurbishing umbrellas and tables and buying more chairs for our guests. 

Since the pool at Highland Lakes is by far the largest and most heavily used of our amenities, the Pool Committee is a vital part of our summertime operation.
